Unleashing the Power of Performance Testing Tools - JMeter

Effective Web Performance Measurement

This course aims to teach how to use the popular, open source performance testing tool - JMeter to carryout performance testing of web applications & web services. All our previous courses teaches about the concepts required to do performance testing rightly & effectively to certify a system for its performance & scalability. But this course is designed to teach beginner level performance testers about how to apply the concepts by using a open source performance testing tool to practically implement the testing techniques effectively to certify the system for performance & scalability characteristics.

The course targets to explain JMeter tool features both theoretically & practically.using various examples. This would be a hands-on practical course to get well versed in using the tool for carrying out real time projects. As performance testing using open source tools is gaining more popularity during recent years, JMeter is replacing many commercial tools & having hands on experience in JMeter is mandated in many organizations.

The course starts from basic introduction to JMeter tool & it covers how to use various architectural elements including various logic controllers, pre & post processor elements, assertions,timers, functions, etc and also highlighting advanced concepts like distributed testing, integration with Jenkins to carryout CI/CD performance tests, real-time reporting using InfluxDB / Grafana, etc.

The course provides the dump of all the JMeter script exercises covered in the tool demo lessons & also covers reference topics in Appendix including the key advancements in newer version of JMeter tool 4.0.

Disclaimer : The course is not aimed cover 100% of all the JMeter architectural elements rather designed to teach a beginner about how to use JMeter tool to

a) Develop test scripts & to do debugging & to do customization activities (like parameterization, correlation, response validation, think time configuration, etc),

b) Perform Test execution activities

c) Measure & Report the test results.

d) And also introduces advanced topics (like Beanshell programming, Jenkins integration for CI load tests, InfluxDB / Graphana real time dashboards, utilities to accelerate performance testing, etc)

The Performance Engineer is expected to practically try the discussed exercises & explore the discussed topics further, to gain good practical experience in JMeter tool.
