Some Startling Numbers - Please Loadtest Your Apps It Works

Posted by Mike Brunt at 8:25 AM Web Servers | .NET | DataBase | CloudComputing | ColdFusion | JRun-J2EE

You have heard me or read me going on about load-testing and why it is vital.  This is another short blog post from me and really only consists of two sets of numbers.  Both are from a 400 concurrent vUser test before and after some recommended changes on a client application, not lab stuff.

The test results before the changes...

"Total Number of Clicks: 7,508 (1,759 Errors) - Average Click Time of all URLs: 18,306 ms - With Timeouts"

The test results after the changes...

"Total Number of Clicks: 28,214 (0 Errors) - Average Click Time of all URLs: 433 ms No Timeouts"

It was load-testing the code which enabled the client to find the problem and as you can see the difference is truly startling.   The client was on the road to moving off ColdFusion and the truth is CF can and does scale; rather well.

If you need any help establishing a load-test environment, contact us, we can help you.

Ich weiß Uncle Jack ", sollte das nicht, dass es eine bessere Möglichkeit, Ihre Musik über jeder beliebigen Person zu Hause Audio-System gespielt zu hören", sagte ich. Worauf er antwortete: "Klar, aber die Sache ist es ist schwerer zu verdienen dabei Geld, und so das macht weniger Menschen wollen sich wirklich gut darin. "" Vielleicht haben Sie einen Punkt haben ", sagte ich," ich denke, wir müssen abwarten und sehen. " Und so haben wir Muss.

Music is a very important part of our life which it can help us relieve the high pressure and so a good quality headphone can be very important for you to listen to the music. I think monster beats headphone can be the best choice for you.
In the peaceful night time, a guy was walking in a creek with streams. The movement like a wonderful audio, I look up the stars twinkling densely coated and value the dazzling rays of mild. Not all of this reminded me of his audio inside the monster headphones, the dazzling genius is Mozart.
