I've been thinking about writting a book about OpenSTA but the truth is very few companies seem willing to pay anything for OpenSTA. I offer support contracts starting as low as $600 a year which I use to fund further development of OpenSTA, but so far, I have sold only a handful in the US and Europe.
What would a good book on OpenSTA be worth to you? Any ideas on how to distribute it so that I would actually be paid for all copies?
Bernie, doesn't lulu offer some sort of print-on-demand service?
If you wrote a book I'd be interested in it, I easily part with $50 of company money for this sort of book. The question is what would you put in it?
Most of the queries I see seem to be about performance testing in general, not so much specific to OpenSTA. People ask the question in an OpenSTA forum because it's the tool they're using because it's free. But the question could really apply to any tool because they're generally about parametisation or interpreting results. So does that mean people really need a book on general performance testing?
Maybe this forum could help you get a list of contents together.
I'd like to see a section on wait times. I'd also like to see something on managing your test data.
If you do get around to writing something and want a second opinion, I'd happily review drafts.
Everywhere's within walking distance if you have enough time.
