An e-commerce scalability case study is presented in which both traditional performance testing and performance modeling were used to help tune the application for high performance. This involved the creation of a system simulation model as well as the development of an approach for test case generation and execution. We describe our experience using a simulation model to help diagnose production system problems, and discuss ways that the effectiveness of performance testing efforts were improved by its use.
Software performance testing, software testing, performance modeling, simulation, workload characterization.
