Subject Re: Performance tests for OpenWhisk
Date Thu, 03 Aug 2017 16:27:47 GMT
+1 to the idea of having 1 machine dedicated to running action containers
only.
We've also taken Markus' repo a step further with a distributed testing
tool named Locust.io [1] . The tests are at [2].
I've also used Tsung [3] on other projects (it's based on Erlang). Tsung
provides the best performance I've seen out there. It scales to millions of
concurrent users with only a few machines. But b/c of Erlang, I've been
having issues running a cluster in docker containers. Locust.io is much
easier to setup and unlike Tsung, which provides an XML to describe the
tests, Locust.io supports Python and Go scripts.

For running performance tests in a single machine we don't need a
distributed testing tool, but I would still build on such a tool b/c I find
it valuable to reuse the same scripts to generate more load in bigger
OpenWhisk clusters.
