The ideal solution would be :
1/ Design a “typical” and standard web application.
That’s the hard part, but anything is better than what we have now.
(This client web. app will be installed on each host server to test)
2/ Design a test script that:
- exercises the app and simulates a chosen load/number of users.
- collects and stores the perf. results in a unique DB
This will run on 1 unique master machine, and test ALL the
Once for each target server :
3/ Install the app on each target server/host.
=> Know/find 1 person with an account on each target host/server.
(On Textdrive, some machines are known to be less reliable than
4/ register the target url in the master server
and finally, in the master
Every hour, for each server :
5/ run the script and collect the results
==> The accumulated results would be displayed in a big matrix.
That would be a starting point, but it would be damn useful.
