When it was released a few years ago, performance-testing solution Micro Focus (formerly HPE) StormRunner Load promised to be simple and smart but first and foremost scalable. Spinning up hundreds of cloud-based load generators and simulating a million concurrent virtual users was a good head start, but soon the team faced the challenges of scaling further and in more dimensions—and keeping both customers and the team’s performance engineer happy with performance in the process.
As the solution experienced additional jumps in scale, with each taking it into another dimension (from dozens of cloud locations to hundreds of tests running each month to millions of data points collected with each test), the team learned lessons in scale that they are continuously trying to build back into the tool. Oded Keret shares HPE’s performance testing experience, the challenges the company overcame, and the lessons learned along the way.
