    Books on Performance Testing

    Can anyone recommend any good books on Performance/Load testing? I've had a look in Amazon etc, but the searches aren't returning anything of use...

    Thanks in advance,

    Greg.

    Re: Books on Performance Testing

    Segue offers 2 good ones for free on their website, 'Load testing for eConfidence' and 'Gain eConfidence - the eBusiness Reliability Guide'. You'll have to endure a sales call or two but it is worth it. The books don't go into great depth but they present some very important concepts. They will give you a good grounding in the process and help you evaluate other books better.
