Using the Cloud to Load Test and Monitor Your Applications

Load testing is often one of the most difficult testing efforts to set-up—in both time for the deployment and cost for the additional hardware needed. Using cloud-based software, you can transform this most difficult task to one of the easiest. Charles Sterling explains how load testing fits into the relatively new practice of DevOps. Then, by re-using the tests created in the load testing effort to monitor applications, the test team can help solve the challenges in measuring, monitoring, and diagnosing applications―not just in development and test but also into production. Chuck demonstrates web performance test creation, locally run load test creation, cloud executed load test to the cloud, application performance monitoring (APM), global system monitoring (GSM), and usage monitoring (UM) for near real-time customer input for your application.
