Load Testing With JMeter™

Learn to use the open source framework, Apache JMeter™, to manage, record, and execute your tests. The two-day, hands-on class will have students run tests against a sample application to help solve issues that include basic test recording, dealing with SSL, parameterizeing tests, and more.

Description
  • Develop a foundational understanding of JMeter
  • Determine strategies for recording a test
  • Discover how to monitor bottlenecks
  • Understand meaningful reporting strategies
  • Learn how to Scale tests in the cloud cost effectively
 
Load and performance testing is complicated due to the holistic nature of finding performance bottlenecks. Rather than complicate matters by introducing the complexities of a proprietary load testing software licensing scheme, with some added engineering effort, you can use an open source framework to manage, record, and execute your tests. 
 
This hands-on class will engage students in running tests against a sample application to help solve issues that include basic test recording, dealing with SSL, and parameterizing tests. It includes theoretical components that discuss how to find bottlenecks, what and how to monitor tests, the importance of results aggregation and reporting, and how to implement it. Lastly, we will discuss the creation of a cost-effective load and performance infrastructure in the cloud so you can scale tests and not break the bank.
 
Who Should Attend
This intermediate class contains technical content that teaches JMeter load testing techniques and is appropriate for Software Developer, Software Tester, Test Engineer, Performance Tester, Performance Engineer, Test Lead, DevOps Engineer, and Operational Support roles. Anyone interested in making an elastic load testing infrastructure that can fit into their CI/CD pipeline should also attend. 
 
Prerequisites
Participants should have some programming knowledge, some knowledge of the http protocol, and a basic understanding of how web servers work. 
 
Laptop Required
Attendees are required to bring their own laptop with permissions to install the following:
  • Java 8 or 9 installed.
  • JMeter software
  • A text editor. The text editor will need to be more advanced than Notepad. If you are a developer, your existing IDE will do; if not we recommend Notepad++.
  • The ability to ssh; we recommend putty.
  • A git client. You can choose any client but we recommend this one.
At a minimum you must be able to install putty and have an html5 capable browserIf you can only meet the minimum requirements, please contact Client Support prior to class as this will require additional preparation by the course instructor.
