Subject Re: [users@httpd] http testing question
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2014 12:39:40 GMT
I’ve just finished creating a script that will test my app for content and functionality.
I use WWW::Mechanize and Test::WWW::Mechanize
Getting their nuances took me some trial and error,  There are some thing it is missing, su
as proof that a radio button was actually clicked
Or I havn’t figured out that nuance.
For content and functionality it does a good job.
Although I have yet to figure out why it won’t do a follow_link for one of 20, when it will
follow it perfectly from the app or from the html, when I view source and click on it.
Loading would take some parallel threading to load up your server, but then you’d have to
conceive some way to measure.
All this if you have time and not a budget for doing it.

We have tried ab, webpagetest, and jmeter a bit but still learning.


What aspects do you plan to test?

Most, maybe all, can create arbitrary load on your server, at least when you use multiple
Most, maybe all, can check the HTTP response code.
Some can perform detailed checks of response content.
Some can use the response from one request to drive subsequent requests, such as when simulating
login or more complex user flows.

Maybe the question is what combination of load testing and functional testing do you need?
