I’m sure you are familiar with the typical performance testing crisis that happens near the end of far too many projects. This scenario is that development and testing run too long, the release date is rapidly approaching and you’re forced to sacrifice performance testing for looming deadlines. This is the opposite of a “win-win” situation.
Keep reading to find out how you can improve this scenario in your environment with the power for DevOps.

Today’s engineer is likely to be working on code that is continuously integrated into the main source code repository. Continuous Integration systems such as Jenkins help ensure that unit tests and other tasks are automatically run whenever a build takes place. A task that more and more developers are running as part of their continuous integration suite is load testing their software. Users of HP StormRunner Load can take advantage of HP’s Storm Plugin for Jenkins to run their StormRunner Load tests automatically. This post describes the four simple steps you can take to make this happen.
Often developers will want to run some preliminary load tests before the full GUI has been developed. They may also want to programmatically test certain code or sections of a web server. In these cases, using HP TruClient may not be feasible.
Fortunately, HP has TruAPI which is a programmatic way to write scripts against a web server’s functionality.
The secret to improving quality and delivery is to “shift left” and identify issues sooner using actionable information to better predict application release success.
