Stress testing a COM object
I've been asked to implement a load test for a COM object currently under development by our Development Dept. This object acts as a server: each request submitted by a client generates an instance of an entity managed by this COM object.
The purpose of the load test is to find out the "breaking point" of this COM server, i.e. how many instances of the entity managed by this COM object can be created and tracked for a given HW configuration of the machine that physically runs this COM server.
This is the first time I'm trying to deal with a "white box" test, and I must say I haven't a specific experience about the COM model and COM programming. I'm uncertain about the best way to conduct such a test: I have a test automation tool available, TestComplete, but it seems that its load testing features don't exactly fit my needs for this specific case.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance!
Re: Stress testing a COM object
I finally figured it out. After investigating (without success) the possibility to use some test automation tool, I finally decided to develop an ad-hoc "test driver" using .NET.
