Speaker: Jim Holmes, Test Studio Evangelist, Telerik
Telerik’s Test Studio
enables organizations to quickly set up, execute, and analyze load scenarios to answer critical business questions like “Can our site survive a wave of users after our next major product release?” or “What’s our users’ experience like when the site’s at peak usage?” Test Studio lets you create complex load runs based on existing functional tests, ad-hoc recordings, or even Fiddler traces. It’s easy to build up multiple unique use cases, each tailored with custom think times and user load ratios. Load testers can quickly configure Test Studio with multiple controllers and agents for whatever environment fits the testers’ needs. Our load agents are extraordinarily powerful in their ability to handle large numbers of virtual users per CPU core. This lets load testers run thousands of VUs on existing multi-core systems instead of having to build out extensivenetworks of systems dedicated to load testing efforts. Test Studio enables you to easily analyze the most critical metrics around your load projects live during the load test runs, and you’ll have full, simple access to the same metrics after your test is complete. Test Studio enables you to quickly respond to your stakeholder’s non-technical, but vital business concerns.
