Load & performance testing
HI to all,
I have to test the application load & performance in DB clustering & load balancer environment .... can anybody share any specific strategy to test the clustering & load balancer performance or how to crash the clustering & load balancer server ???
Re: Load & performance testing
If I have physical access to the hardware, I prefer to disconnect network cables. This way, the software on the failed component has no warning (as would be in the case of a normal shutdown) and you are less likely to corrupt the resource you are removing from the testbed. Second best option is to disable the network adapter via an OS command.
For more ideas on what to measure before during and after a fail-over, see this report (pages 21-24) or check out my blog later this week for more on fail-over testing.
