A large bank in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) plans to develop a new mobile back-end application using microservices and container technology. They expect the platform to be able to support 10,000,000 customers with 5,000 TPS. They decided to use Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) as the runtime platform for this application. To ensure that this platform is able to support their throughput requirements and future growth rate, they have performed internal load testing with their infrastructure and mock-up services. This article will share the lessons learned load testing Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

This blog describes how a script can be used to automate Open vSwitch PVP testing. The goal for this PVP script was to have a quick (and dirty) way to verify the performance (change) of an Open vSwitch (DPDK) setup. This script either works with a Xena Networks traffic generator or the T-Rex Realistic Traffic Generator. For details on what the PVP test does, please refer to the following blog post, Measuring and comparing Open vSwitch performance.

There are infinite ways to test Virtual Switches, all tailored to expose (or hide) a specific characteristic. The goal of our test is to measure performance under stress and be able to compare versions, which may or may not have hardware offload.

Mobile App development does not stop when you build your app and have a binary ready to be installed on the device. Regardless of how good your code is or how much unit and regression testing you performed, there are elements that need to be tested under different circumstances, for example, data traffic, the number of users, location, and high latency in the mobile network.
