Performance testing is a type of testing intended to determine the responsiveness, throughput, reliability, and/or scalability of a system under a given workload. It is a generic term that can refer to many different types of performance-related testing (load, stress, endurance, etc.), each of which addresses a specific problem area and provides opportunities for improvement and to find out bottlenecks. There are several automated tools available to execute performance testing – JMeter is one of the most widely used tools to simulate the load generation. It is an open source software, designed to simulate a heavy load on a server, group of servers, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. With the increasing demands and requirements placed on the software products and projects, PtU aims to help pave the path to a global standard in performance testing and the JMeter area.
Certified Performance Tester with JMeter (CPTJM)
PtU is a practitioner level course for testers involved in performance testing. The course covers JMeter as a open source tool to generate load. This design-focused course provides an undiluted JMeter experience, focusing especially on the critical JMeter concepts. This enables a better real-life implementation of the newly acquired knowledge in the participants' daily work, such as: Record and Play, Correlation, Parameterization, Controller, ThinkTime, Assertions and Monitoring.
The PtU-CPTJM course contains some technical content that teaches JMeter load testing techniques and is appropriate for Software Testers, Test Engineers, Performance Testers, Performance Engineers, Test Leads, QA Manager, Operational Support.
