Abstract

Performance testing is used to assess if an enterprise application can fulfill its expected Service Level Agreements. How- ever, since some performance issues depend on the input workloads, it is common to use time-consuming and complex iterative test methods, which heavily rely on human expertise. This paper presents an automated approach to dynamically adapt the workload so that issues (e.g. bottle- necks) can be identified more quickly as well as with less effort and expertise. We present promising results from an initial validation prototype indicating an 18-fold decrease in the test time without compromising the accuracy of the test results, while only introducing a marginal overhead in the system.
