To answer your question simply, use this tool from WebPerformance.com. I agree with the other answers/comments that 10 is a pretty low number. The lowest I even consider a stress test would be 100 as that is the default connection pool size for SQL Server 2008 that I have actually seen on a production server. The low hanging fruits for optimization will ...

without Think Time This is critical to the question you are asking. Can I ask why you're performing a test without think time? In the real world, users cannot type in data and click submit at the rate an automated script can. If you do not insert timers and pauses into your automated script, you are not really measuring performance under 10 real world ...

That sounds very underwhelming to be honest. But it is not a bad thing though because you might have spotted something bad. I would actually let the load run for a while, check which processes are eating up the resources and actually do a bit of debugging to see what`s going on inside. If that is the expected behavior of the app.(which i doubt) try using ...

when I select the popup link it opens in a new frame on the same page. For webdriver, you have to explicitly move the driver to a new frame. If you can identify the frame, you can use driver.switchTo().frame() to find elements inside it. Does that help?

Charles can slow down the connection to allow you to look at the performance as it degrades over connection speed just fine. http://www.charlesproxy.com/

All of the classical big tools, such as Mercury/HP LoadRunner, Silk/Borland/Microfocus Performer & Rational/IBM Performance Tester all have strong client-server testing backgrounds. Most of these tools began in the two tier client-server arena and support collection (recording) or development in dozens (in once case over 30) difference interfaces. ...

Not sure if you have dismissed JMETER already, or if I'm missing anything. If not, you should probably give it a spin, since it's a free alternative to others.

You seem to be doing tests that verify the user's frontend experience, correct? Functional tests of some sort? That means you're probably going to have to authenticate like a user would, at least once. A few tips: You can avoid automating the login form if you capture the HTTP request generated when you click "submit" and playing it back. This will save a ...

What you are overlooking is one simple fact: if solution what you half-proposed was feasible, Google engineers would be working to make it available for last few years. And in my experience they are VERY smart, it is futile to try to outsmart them (at least for me - maybe you are much smarter). Browsers ARE genuinely different, and packing all the ...
