Blazemeter and JMeter

ImpactQA recently did performance testing of Marathon website using Blazemeter. Here is how we carried out the testing.

Problem Statement

We wanted to stress test a .NET application and were not sure if we wanted to test using VSTS or JMeter. VSTS had its own advantages while JMeter could easily be configured in BlazeMeter. The .NET application was to be tested for a load of 10K users and the challenge was to test it remotely. The web server was hosted in the US and the tests were being conducted from a remote location in India.

To simulate a real time load environment we needed the client machine (load generating machine) in US (the servers were already hosted in the US). We needed 10 machines of 8 GB RAM and 3.0 GHz processor). Acquiring such machines in a short time frame in the US and that too only 2 weeks was not only an expensive affair but also time consuming and not worth the price.

That’s where BlazeMeter came in

Thanks to BlazeMeter we could simulate the load using the BlazeMe…
