‘R’ you ready for better results analysis?
Using R language to analyse JMeter logs
We all know the significance of data analysis in Performance Engineering. Like some of the other PAC experts, I use Tableau for analyzing load test results. Tableau is great, I love it, and I will continue to use it so long as someone pays for the license. But what about an alternative open source and free option? Our skills and capability should not be limited to a tool.
Recently I have been experimenting with the statistical computing language “R” as an alternative to Tableau. In this presentation, I will share what I have learnt so far about R and present some tips for analyzing and visualizing JMeter results
I am currently working as a Senior Test Consultant for The Testing Consultancy in New Zealand. I’ve been working in the performance testing space for almost a decade, mostly as an external/consultant. I have had the opportunity to work on diverse technologies and business domains during my consulting career.
I have previously had the opportunity to participate in the performance testing community by attending:
- Neotys Virtual PAC 2018 & 2019
- WOPR #26, a three-day workshop in Melbourne. WOPR (Workshop on Performance and Reliability) is an invite only, prestigious workshop in the field of Software performance.
Performance testing is a continuous learning area and I like sharing the best practices that I have been learning working with a lot of smart people in my career.
