Performance testing is conducted to evaluate the compliance of the system to the performance requirements as defined in the Service level agreement. Bottleneck is a factor that limits the meeting of the performance requirement. Bottleneck is one such thing that can crop up at any user load and at any of the layer in the technology stack. A proactive measure based on mathematical modeling or a reactive approach based on detailed analysis is required to handle system performance bottleneck.
This workshop will look at the specifics and challenges involved in testing internetworking devices, SNMP, and the network management applications that manage the internetworking devices. Special emphasis is placed on the device testing itself rather than internetworking or its routing protocols, as testing and managing the devices themselves are intricate topics. Venkat will speak from his practical experience of working with internetworking devices and the applications managing them.
