Another year of Software Performance Meetups has gone by, but we’ll of course meet again next year. As announced during Tuesday’s Meetup, the next Meetup will take place on 11th February 2020 at the Velvet Coworking Space, Amalienstraße 71 and will be sponsored by Malt. We’d like to invite you to join us again in the new year for a presentation on “Methods and Tools to Analyze and Compare Load Test Results” by Richard Vobl (RETIT). If you would like to present a topic, we’re happy to hear about your suggestions for the second talk.

You may RSVP on the Meetup page:

Methods and Tools to Analyze and Compare Load Test Results (Richard Vobl, RETIT)

Load tests come in different flavors depending on the test goal (e.g., stress tests, endurance tests, performance tests, ..). All these load test flavors have in common that the result of these tests usually consists of a lot of data that needs to be analyzed to get an understanding of the system behavior. However, this analysis is usually hard work and time consuming as the results need to be put into context. Two of the most fundamental questions that need to be answered during the analysis of load test results are the following:

1. How was the response time and throughput of the system?
2. How does it compare to our given SLAs or a previous software version?

Furthermore, the response times and throughput statistics need to be in context, e.g., the workload that was put onto the system. In this talk we are going to look at different methods and tools that help you to compare your load test results. We are going to present and compare available solutions and tools to support you in this process.
