How Benchmark Factory Works

The following steps provide an overview of how Benchmark Factory components interact during the load testing process.

  1. The Benchmark Factory Console implements the workload testing process and controls one or more distributed agent machines. Each agent machine can simulate thousands of users. Each simulated user executes transactions and records statistics.
  2. Benchmark Factory About Agents machines simulate virtual users. The Agents send transactions to the system-under-test. The Agents record statistics that includes how much data the resulting transaction contained and how long it took to get the results. At the end of an iteration, each agent machine reports its findings back to Benchmark Factory.
  3. A server (system-under-test) is the database Benchmark Factory connects to. Benchmark Factory is server neutral and network protocol independent. Benchmark Factory uses vendor client libraries of the system-under-test. Any system that the client software can support, Benchmark Factory can support. Its only requirement is that Agent machines must be able to connect to a server through an appropriate manner and it supports the test system.
  4. The Repository Manager stores all testing data.
  5. Results are viewed from Run Reports.
