Over the past two-and-a-half years, we at HP have been very busy building our scalable solution for mobile application monitoring – AppPulse Mobile. This was a challenging task, as the performance requirements derived from a solution that is able to receive events from millions of devices per second are not an everyday task. We had to use tools for performance testing and diagnostics in ways that push performance testing to the limits. In this session, we will share our experience about using performance tools in an environment that is very dynamic, releasing versions very frequently, and working in a SaaS environment with DevOps methodology.
