 A few simple but efficient performance test suites for Apache OpenWhisk. Determines the maximum
throughput and end-user latency of the system.
 
 ## Test setup
-- A standard OpenWhisk system is deployed. Note that the edge nginx router and API Gateway
are left out currently.
+- A standard OpenWhisk system is deployed. Note that the edge nginx router and API Gateway
are left out currently. As a consequence, the tests talk directly to the controller.
 - Limits are set to 999999 each, for the test's load that means: No throttling at all.
 - The deployment uses a docker setup as proposed by the OpenWhisk development team: `overlay`
driver and HTTP API enabled via a UNIX port.
 
+The load is driven by the beautiful [`loadtest`](https://www.npmjs.com/package/loadtest)
module.
+
 ### Travis' machine setup
 The [machine provided by Travis](https://docs.travis-ci.com/user/ci-environment/#Virtualization-environments)
has ~2 CPU cores (likely shared through virtualization) and 7.5GB memory.

 The latency test determines the end-to-end latency a user experiences when doing a blocking
invocation. The action used is a noop so the numbers returned are plain overhead of the OpenWhisk
system.

 The throughput test determines the maximum throughput a user can get out of the system while
using a single action. The action used again is a noop, so the numbers are plain OpenWhisk
overhead. Note that the throughput does not directly correlate to end-to-end latency here,
as the system does more processing in the background as it shows to the user in a blocking
invocation.

+## Running the suites yourself
+To run the suites against your own system (or any other OpenWhisk deployment really), simply
use the `test.sh` script.
+
+It takes a couple of parameters, defined as follows:
+
+```
+> test.sh HOST CREDENTIALS CONCURRENCY_LEVEL
+```
+
+- **HOST**: The host to reach OpenWhisk. Should include the protocol (`http`/`https`) and
the port if applicable.
+- **CREDENTIALS**: Credentials for OpenWhisk in USER:PASS form.
+- **CONCURRENCY_LEVEL**: Concurrency level for the loadtest. This number should be a multiple
of the number of CPU cores all invoker machines have in total.
