Performance Testing Best Practices

Join the HPE Performance Engineering team for the keynote session. We will share with you useful tips and tricks for performance testing, which were collected over many years and from many experts. We will discuss concepts and guidelines for designing and executing load testing scenarios, including scenarios involving large numbers of virtual users, large amounts of data, and long running ones. We will also talk about today’s software delivery challenges, how we embrace them and how we help you overcome them so you can maintaining quality at scale.

Reinventing Performance Testing

The industry is transforming before our eyes and performance testing should change too. A stereotypical, last-moment performance validation in a test lab using an expensive record-playback load testing tool is no longer enough.

Effective Performance Engineering

In this session Todd shares 4 ways to get started with Effective Performance Engineering now. After spending much of their careers working in this space, and ongoing discussions that Shane and Todd had, they co-authored a book published by O’Reilly titled “Effective Performance Engineering.” Todd will walk you through how to get started, covering many of the examples and more in-depth stories, so to continue to share proven practices to ensure Effective Performance Engineering for you.

Advanced Performance Exploration

In this session you’ll discover an overall approach to the process of root-cause analysis, traversing the architecture of the system front-to-back, top-to-bottom. Take tour of how you can logically walk through each layer, analyzing different metrics and observing different behaviors such as request queuing, latencies, bandwidth capacity and congestion. Learn a simple model for exploring performance that you can apply to any system, any architecture.

How to Get Rid of JMeter Constraints

JMeter is a very good tool but it is also commonly qualified as a resource intensive and complex solution.In this session, our expert will show you how OctoPerf optimises the global JMeter experience from scripting to results in order to optimise your testing experience and go beyond what JMeter offers.

Guillaume Betaillouloux

iOT Performance Testing

In this session Henrik a performance specialist at Neotys will explain the challenges and approaches to testing you should take when dealing with internet of things testing.

Performance Testing with Anomaly Detection from Selenium Tests

In this session Andrew from will share ways automation engineers can leverage their existing skillsets to help with their teams performance testing efforts.

Andrew Krug

API Load Testing Strategies

In this talk we will go through the importance of load testing your back-end APIs. We will learn more about APIs and their performance contracts and see useful load templates to get started with API load testing. We will use LoadUI a popular API performance testing tool. We will walk through examples of REST APIs and also learn how to use distributed load testing for APIs.

In this session discover how APM tools such as Dynatrace AppMon, AppDynamics, NewRelic, work. How to install them in your environment, how to integrate them with your load testing tools (JMeter, Gatling, LoadRunner, Silk, …) and how Andreas goes about analyzing APM data. He will be showing you how I analyzed the most common performance problem patterns, how tools help you through automatic analysis and teach you how you can do the same within minutes

What Past Guild Members are Saying

This has been probably the best "training money" I have ever spent in my 18 years with Deere and 15 years with the DoD. ~ Stevenson Randy

I enjoyed the Automation Guild, made a stack of notes, then implemented nearly code-less automation in just 90 days! ~ Nick Baynham

Of all the online test automation conferences or tech conferences, I've attended, this is the first one that didn't suck and that I actually enjoyed! - Dave Haeffner Author of The Selenium Guidebook
