Scale: Real-World Load Testing Tips to Avoid Bottlenecks When Your Web App Goes Live


Load testing should be part and parcel of every Web development effort, and it should be performed early in the process. However, if you think you can load test using your development environment, you're going to have some surprises when you go live. In this article, the authors outline the process of planning your load testing effort, considering which machines to use, how many users to simulate, which tools are right for you, and how to interpret your results.

Load testing the report server

Hello, I want to do load testing on report server in terms of number of users, but I do not have VSTS to use the load test tool available in it. Is there any other method to do this? Also, Is opening multiple instances of report manager window and running report from each of them is equivalent to having multiple users? Regards.

Load report failed in my website

I have an error loading a report on my websitehttp://sistemas.aplicativoasalud.com/rptRehabilitacion.aspxThis code:<%@ Page Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPage.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="rptRehabilitacion.aspx.vb" Inherits="rptRehabilitacion" title="Reporte Rehabilitacion" %><%@ Register Assembly="CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304"    Namespace="CrystalDecisions.Web" TagPrefix="CR" %><asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="contentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">    <CR:CrystalReportViewer ID="CrystalReportViewer1" runat="server" AutoDataBind="true"        ReportSourceID="CrystalReportSource1" Style="position: static" DisplayGroupTree="False" Height="1087px" Width="821px" />    <CR:CrystalReportSource ID="CrystalReportSource1" runat="server">        <Report FileName="sistemas\Reportes\rehabilitacion.rpt">        </Report>    </CR:CrystalReportSource><

Unit Testing and localization: Could not load file or assembly 'App_GlobalResources'

I recently added an App_GlobalResources folder to an MVC web application. In one of the controllers I access a file in this folder called Strings.resx using the syntax:  Resources.Strings.Foo , where Foo is an entry in this resource file. The site runs without any problems but when I start the MbUnit test, which is in a separate project, It complains that it can't find App_GlobalResources -  an error which is thrown from within the generated Strings.designer.cs file. The fixture is using a mocked request object to test the action on the controller that tries to access the resource.I've searched around and surprisingly there doesn't appear to be a good solution to this. The best solution I could find mentioned putting the test fixtures into the web application project, which I really don't want to do.How do I solve this problem? Thanks in advance. 

Performance(Load/Stress) testing in the SharePoint 2010?


I have SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise based small farm. Farm consist of 2 servers. All users are in AD. This Intranet portal is currently on development phase and we don't have all 300 users active. There are currenly only 10 users who are part of the development project.

How to test performance of the SharePoint farm?

In past, I used to test performance of SharePoint 2007 with SQL Server Profiler and Windows Server 2003 Performance Monitor. Is this method good enough to measure actual performance? Any better tools for this?

How about load testing of SharePoint 2010 Server?

Is there tools can generate loads and reports?

Any experience about Load testing with Visual Studio 2010?

Load testing tool the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Administration Toolkit is for testing SharePoint 2007?

Is Load testing tool totally wrong tool for SharePoint 2010 Server?

Load / Stress testing SharePoint with WCAT


Is anyone able to provide a sample WCAT script that can be used to do load-testing for Sharepoint 2010 (actually, 2007 would work as well)?

The Web Capacity Analysis Tool from the IIS team is a great tool for load testing - lightweight, multi-Client-machine... but I cannot see how to get it working for SharePoint (actually, for any type of NTLM Authenticated sites). Any help would be greatly appreciated - I imagine MS has some scripts they've used in the past, but I can't get any response from the forum at the IIS site. The User guide is not that clear on how to set it up for a SharePoint intranet scenario.

Workflow Foundation 4 freezing always at the same stage on Load Testing

I have a rather simple worflow hosted on AppFabric. I call it through a WCF endpoint using netTcpBinding, and it calls 2 WCF methods, also via netTcpBinding, hosted on the same server also on AppFabric. I can load test both of the WCF methods being called by the workflow simultaneously without any problems. However, when I start Load Testing the workflow, after a few seconds, when I'm around 10 simultaneous users, the WorkFlows locks up completely, and I'm unable to find out why. All clients starts raising Open Connection timeouts. 
The problem is not locking on the SQL Server database, because I monitor it, and it's all go. All tables involved are lock free. I think the problem might be on MSTSC, since I start a transaction scope on the workflow, but how could I detect the problem there? The dashboard on dcomcnfg really doesn't help at all. 
How can I find out where's the problem? What could be the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Unit Testing SharePoint - Past, Present, and Sporm

As I described in SharePoint: The Wild West of Software Development there is a serious problem when you develop for SharePoint: ensuring quality through unit testing is really, really hard. And that's where a new open source tool just released today called sporm (SharePoint Object Relational Mapper) comes in. While sporm provides many benefits besides simplified unit testing I wanted to focus on this topic first, because sporm's approach, which models the entity framework in the way it supports POCO's, is a unique feature not available with other SharePoint tools like LINQ to SharePoint.

Resources for soup-to-nuts of website development lifecycle



 I'm looking for a website, or book, or some resource that can lead me down the path from website design to implementation/deployment. I know that covers a ton of material, but I am really looking for the bullet points, or high-lights, to make sure that I think of everything. I am mostly fuzzy on security measures and deployment since I haven't been involved in those aspects before.

Background:  I have been a programmer for many years, and with a little over 3 years' experience coding websites in vb.net/asp.net with sql server. Due to recent restructuring/layoffs at our firm, I find myself in the position of lead IT person - I'm feeling a bit underqualified but I feel this is my chance to work hard and step up to it. I'm very good at vb.net, master pages, css, asp.net, sql server. I'm worried that the person who was the lead before was doing a bunch of stuff that I'm not aware of...so I need to start learning more than just the code. I don't need lessons on how to code anything...I need to learn how it all gets put together - the next step up.

thanks for any suggestions!
