Creating a Performance Testing Framework with Stephen Townshend

Published on:

About this Episode:

What are the components of a performance testing framework? And why should you build one? Open-source performance testing tools are great, but you need a framework of tools to provide all the features you need for serious performance testing. In this episode, Stephen Townshend, an SRE at IAG, shares why you should build your performance test framework, the components that make up a performance test framework, suggestions of tools and scripting languages along the way, and examples of frameworks implemented in the real world.
