Load test Mendix

Hi all, I am simply looking for the most effective tool used to Load test the Mendix platform from a User perspective. We have tried solutions such as Parasoft Load Test which is able to record interactions, parameterise requests and perform the interaction without the context of a browser under load. But the software seems to battle to correctly reproduce the requests correctly under load. Any suggestions would be welcomed. Let's discuss it!

Hi Alistair,

I have experience with Scapa Technologies to record, parameterise and generate load. It works fine, but it is a lot of work getting the script right. Mendix has for internal use a tool that works similar to Scapa and Parasoft, but less fancy.

At Mansystems we have developed a testing framework (MTF) for functional testing using selenium. You can do load testing with this, given a selenium cluster to scale to a decent amount of users. This scripts a lot easier with our keyword driven approach. It does not scale as good as protocol level tests at the moment. We are working on that.
