LoadTest Tool für ARAS

LoadTest Tool für ARAS

With the ARAS Load Test Tool you can create a simulation to test how your system will behaves under real user interaction.


It is..

  • a console application (command line tool)
  • a multi-threaded environment (simulates real work scenario)
  • configuration based (connection definition, queries count, thread count, configuration files locations, output log location, test result file location, etc)
  • queries with placeholders



From a functional point of view we can assume that:

One Thread = Single User
One Query = Action/Click that user performs on ARAS UI

So if we configure 100 threads that uses 500 queries it will mean that we will simulate the work of 100 users that clicks on actions in ARAS Web UI 500 times.

Those users can perform actions parallel so some actions will be send to ARAS at the same time - in this configuration.

Additionally the load test tool can be installed on any number of servers or client machines. That permits the simulation geographically distributed usage scenarios.


Four servers; one each in Frankfurt, Virginia, London, Beijing; additionally four client machines. Each machine runs 200 threads. The total test simulates then 8 * 200 users = 1600 users

Load Test answers questions like:

  • Does target system handles that amount of users? 
  • Does target system handles that amount of simultaneous queries?
  • What is the maximum rate of users and queries that target system can handle (without error or with acceptable error rate)?



In order to create reports based on those data we would need to:

  • Perform load tests on schedule manner
  • Compare load test results (with same configuration) one with each other 
  • User same machine in compared results (load test machine may have an impact on results)

We can create dashboards that presents:

  • List of machine/sources where load tests were run
  • Configuration of compared tests (used threads and queries count)
  • Timeline of tests with test result duration in certain time period
