-# openwhisk-performance
-Performance harness for Apache OpenWhisk
+# Performance tests for Apache OpenWhisk
+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.
+- 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.
+### Travis' machine setup
+The [machine provided by Travis](
has ~2 CPU cores (likely shared through virtualization) and 7.5GB memory.
+## Latency test
+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
+- 1 HTTP request at a time (concurrency: 1)
+- 10.000 samples with a single user
+- noop action
