Load testing QlikView with JMeter

Another really interesting session that I attended at Qonnections was on scalability. Here, we looked at using the JMeter tool (an open source product from Apache: http://jakarta.apache.org/jmeter/) to first record a set of interactions and then play them back multiple times with multiple sessions.

This is a really powerful tool. Not just for QlikView but for anyone developing web products.

I can't record all the steps here, but there is a tutorial document and some sample files available from the Community page @ http://community.qlikview.com/groups/qlikview-scalability/forum/default.aspx

  2. You need to be signed into Qlik Community then you can join the group. Once in, there is a "Media" link on the right hand side.

  3. You also may want to look at this program http://www.badboy.com.au/ - its a web recorder that allows you to export the recording as test cases for jMeter. Mark Kruger of CFWebTools.com gives a fairly good explanation of how it works.
