Experience with Performance Testing of Software Systems: Issues, an Approach, and Case Study
December 2000 (vol. 26 no. 12)
pp. 1147-1156

Abstract—An approach to software performance testing is discussed. A case study describing the experience of using this approach for testing the performance of a system used as a gateway in a large industrial client/server transaction processing application is presented.
