Subject RE: How to test a web site
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 13:14:29 GMT

I recommend The Art of Application Performance Testing by Ian Molyneaux as a good place to
start understanding what performance testing is and how to go about it.  It does not discuss
the use of specific tools, but it will help you set expectations with your boss and your customers.
 He also gives an excellent grounding in test design.

The book is available from O'Reilly and has ISBN 978-0-596-52066-3.

Hi Naga,

To my knowledge there is only one book regarding JMeter and I did not find
it useful.  Here is one link that may help and when I have time I will
search my bookmarks for additional links.  Honestly your best bet is to
follow the examples on the JMeter home site.


I have some older posts on my blog that might help.

Best of luck!
