What is HP's recommendation on how to performance test virtualized apps on container?

We want to test client applications that are hosted on virtualized app containers.  Does anyone know if HP have any recommendation on how to performance test virtualized apps this way?  Appreciate your help.

Hi
Interesting question. I don't think it should be different than a regular application. It is still dependent on the resources of the hosting server. My recomendtion, treat this as any application load test.
Good luck,
Lior

Hi,

On top of the regular test planning aspects I suggest covering also scenarios that require the platform to excersize the elastic aspects: scale out/in, burst load, noise as a result of other appliactions that are sharing the same infrasturcture, etc...

I suggest using SiteScope for monitoring. Here are a couple of reference links. 

For noise generation you can check this blog post. The capability exists also in Performance Center. This is just one aspect of "noise", you can mimic more using other methods (e.g. CPU stress)

Shlomi,

When I try to go to the linked pages I get the following:

Are there updated links for these references?

Hi Jim,

It seems like the blog posts I shared earlier were archived in order to prevent HPE brand violation. We will do our best to re-write them in order to make them Micro Focus compatible.

Meanwhile you can use this link: https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/SiteScope:11.41/Use/MR_dynamic_docker
