When: Thu November 15, 2012 6:30 pm
Organization: Boston Web Performance Group
Location: Wayfair Offices - 177 Huntington Ave 177 Huntington Ave Floor 24 Boston, MA
PRESENTATION: Using slides and live demos, our presenter will show how dynaTrace technology, specifically the “Test Center Edition” helps the load testing team to quickly identify the bottlenecks in the application and conveniently share the data with the development and architecture group. We’ll provide a live demo using Selenium load testing tool to generate transactions starting from the browser and all the way to the database. Using Selenium and dynaTrace will allow the attendees to see end to end transactions and will show how dynaTrace captures every transaction and generates data that enables load testing teams to quickly find the root cause of performance issues. We’ll also provide examples and best practices on sharing this information across departments (i.e. with development, production, QA operators, etc.) in a way that provides complete access to the performance issues but without the need to actually reproduce the problem.
AUDIENCE TAKEAWAYS: By the end of the session, attendees will come away with an understanding of how they can use existing load testing tools in combination with dynaTrace to significantly improve mean-time-to-resolution as well as time-to-market for the applications they are building. Attendees can test drive dynaTrace for free, including automating performance tests, using the dynaTrace AJAX Edition available here: http://www.compuware.com/application-performance-management/ajax-performance-testing.html.
(1) DynaTrace works seamlessly with industry standard load testing tools including Load Runner, Gomez 360, Silk Performer, JMeter, Selenium.
