  • Best Practices in Testing GraphQL APIs
    7 projects | | 3 Jul 2023
    Performance and load testing are essential parts of GraphQL API testing. It ensures APIs can handle expected traffic volumes and respond within acceptable timeframes. You can use tools like Apache JMeter or Gatling to generate realistic loads and evaluate the API's performance under different scenarios. Techniques like batched queries and caching can help mitigate this issue.
  • Perf/web testing framework similar to locust/gatling for .NET?
    3 projects | /r/dotnet | 14 Mar 2023
    New to the .NET community and trying to learn! I have used tools such as Apache JMeter (Java), (Java) and Locust (Python) that are decent full featured web perf frameworks. Typically these integrate well with your code, and can be run as part of your unit/integration tests and produce offline reports
  • Optimizing Decision Making with a Trie Tree-Based Rules Engine: An Experience Report

    I used SpringBoot 3.0.2, GraalVM 22 (JVM mode), a MacOS 2,6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7, running 1000 users for 5 minutes. The idea was to test how memory consumption and CPU usage evolve. Below, I compared the footprint of these three solutions. I collected the total count of requests, throughput, memory consumption, and CPU usage using VisualVM and Gatling.

    Load test your code to simulate a production load (you can use tools like k6 or Gatling)

    It's read as "Ochikisu" and origin is the machine gun manufacturer Hotchkiss because this tool does not have as much firepower as the Gatling.

    JMeter is old and crusty and not at all friendly to work with. But I used it for years because it was really about the best we had. Today I don't wish it on anyone.

    Ruby JMeter finally made JMeter easier to manage, but I haven't worked in a Ruby shop for years, and I'm not going to force everyone to learn Ruby just to do some load testing.

    Then along came k6. It's developer-friendly and I've seen people actually enjoy using it. I recommend anyone considering JMeter also take a look at k6. They do a better job of selling it than I do:

    I am also Gatling-curious. Seems like an option for anyone in the JVM ecosystem.

    I used to use JMeter, till someone else on the team introduced me to locust, so check that out if you don’t mind doing some python: There’s also gatling (scala based, but can be generated by a recorder or HAR files),
  • Is there a way to automate performance tests?

    I use nodemark to benchmark pure logic, not database interactions. If I wanted to benchmark the full application logic including database interactions, and I couldn't do it live, then I'd run my full app locally and smash it with ab, gatling or similar.
