StresStimulus Presentation

Hey folks!

Many people, companies, and customers will one day ask, « Is my application really efficient? » I will comprehensively discuss this question here.

You can apply this material to applications hosted on-premise, such as SharePoint or CRM, and also applications hosted online, such as Office 365. Obviously you will not have access to some backend performance configuration elements hosted on Office 365’s servers.

A load testing tool should be able to record a realistic user scenario of the application under test and to define load by ramping up users.

With Visual Studio you can do all of that (Enterprise version required) by navigating through several screens. StresStimulus however allows to use a single screen to set all the parameters of your test.

So StresStimulus provides simplicity, but not at the expense of functionality; for example, the user simulation is extremely easy to set up compared to VS where you have to create quite complex parameters to simulate different profiles.

101016_1713_StresStimul2.png

Mixing different scenarios is also pretty simple:
1. Build Test Cases.
2. Build Test Case Groups, which corresponds to the profile of LoadTest under VS, to replay them in parallel, sequentially, or both.

During test configuration, here are the parameters that can be adjusted very quickly:

101016_1713_StresStimul4.png

These are actually the same as in VS (there is no magic; it is necessary to define a test pattern).

In terms of monitoring, the tool focuses on the essentials without getting bogged down with counters, such as Garbage Collector. I imagine that it is possible to add as many counters as you need, or alternatively use those of Windows in Perfmon, but then you have to use two different tools.

101016_1713_StresStimul5.png

Before proceeding to build the test case, you should note that StresStimulus is completely integrated with a tool that many administrators use … Fiddler.

Let’s proceed to the Test wizard:

101016_1713_StresStimul7.png

101016_1713_StresStimul8.png

Once your recording scenario is completed, the different content types are analyzed, and the auto-correlation parameters are automatically calculated, the wizard checks the consistency of your test to see if everything goes well during the running of the baseline test (the first test is used as a sample).

At this stage, the scenario is replayed:

101016_1713_StresStimul9.png

Once replayed and validated, we can move on to the main question: how do I load test my platform?

101016_1713_StresStimul10.png

101016_1713_StresStimul11.png

We set the number of users:

101016_1713_StresStimul12.png

Then, test duration and number of iterations per user:

101016_1713_StresStimul13.png

We add Think Time (time between user clicks).

A small plus compared to VS is here you can set a random time within an interval of minutes (for users who take their time)

101016_1713_StresStimul14.png

Then chose to enable the Browser Cache or not.

Now we are ready to run the test.

101016_1713_StresStimul15.png

And we analyze the results.

A sequel regarding the interpretation of results is coming soon.

[SharePoint] – Script PowerShell pour afficher les tailles des bases de données

Florent Cazenave

Bonjour à tous,

Aujourd’hui un petit script bien utile qui vous permettra d’afficher la taille des bases de données d’une ferme SharePoint OnPremise.

Cela permettra à l’administrateur de ferme principalement de suivre l’évolution du stockage dans la ferme SharePoint, afin d’affiner ses quotas, optimiser son serveur / cluster SQL Server.

Le but est donc de créer un petit script qui parcourra les Web Applications, puis les bases de données qui leur sont associées (on ne sélectionne donc pas les bases de données des Applications de Service) et d’afficher le tout dans une GridView par exemple.

Dans cette démo, j’utiliserai l’environnement PowerShell ISE (Integrated Scripting Environment), avec Windows Server 2012 et une plateforme SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise (Pré-SP1).

Première étape, lancer PowerShell ISE avec le compte Administrateur de la ferme SharePoint :

Et entrer le script tout fait 🙂

Ok, je vais détailler un peu son contenu :

Première étape, afin…

Boom !!

Paf !

Et voilà c’est décidé je me relance dans le blogging et ça va déménager !!

L’idée générale du blog est de partager avec vous un ensemble de :

– News, idées,

– Scripts, Bonnes pratiques,

– Gouvernance, automatisation, montée en charge,

– …

Ok mais quel sujet ?

Principalement j’aborderai la plateforme de collaboration de Microsoft: SharePoint.

SharePoint étant très transverse, il y aura aussi du Windows Serveur, du Sql, du PowerShell

En terme d’intéropérabilité j’aborderai aussi les questions liées à l’intégration de SAP avec SharePoint

Bref tout plein de chose, ponctuée également de Geeky Test ! Et pourquoi pas la mise en place aussi de mon fameux Friday Reading (regroupant l’ensemble des lectures intéressantes de la semaine)

A bientôt,
