Inconsistant avg. page response time in every test
I am testing asp.net web application using SilkPerformer. I run same workload, same set of scripts in same environment (same web servers, db servers etc). I ran multiple load test for same duration with peak load. Every time I get different avg. page response time. How do I debug this or find the root cause of this?
Re: Inconsistant avg. page response time in every test
There are so many variables that come into play. One approach I've used with success is to have long steady state runs. This will even out any peaks and valleys in your data. Also, make sure there are no other resource contentions in your environment (e.g., backups, network, users, etc).
