Extending Your Tool

Every tool is extensible, from commercial closed source to freeware to open source. It simply becomes a question of how and where you hook into the system. This is why performance testing tools are built around general purpose computer languages. At the time a tool is designed and constructed it’s impossible to foresee all of the possible interfaces and applications it will be used to test. As a result, the ability to extend is critical capability of performance testing tools.

Switching and Converting

In the eventual career of a performance tester there will come a day when your current tool just can’t cut it, or your boss wants you to switch, or the R&D department for your favorite tool all give up and just quit. For whatever reason, it’s good to know the ins and outs of switching tools and converting your work into a new tool.

What's Missing?

Have you seen me? I'm a tool feature that's been missing for many months or even years. In this next episode of PerfBytes we'll investigate exactly what kinds of features and capabilities we'd love to see make their way into every performance tool on the market! So many times these great ideas are left aside due to complexity, cost or lack of popularity. But still - wouldn't it be nice!?!
