A stress test is a test designed to increase the number of simultaneous requests on a system past a point where performance is degraded, possibly even to the point of complete failure. Where a load test will peak out in the number of simultaneous users, a basic stress test will continue to increase load on the system until the resources are overloaded. This pushes the system to a state of potential failure to see how the system handles it and whether the system can perform a graceful recovery.
We are providing the test to test the performance of EPrints or DSpace on the specification of hardware and software configuration (normally on Apache configuration). The test is used as a guide to configure (increase) the resources of hardware and web configuration.
A report with tables and graphs will be generated.
Please contact to us if you want to test your EPrints or DSpace performance and fine tune the hardware, via firstname.lastname@example.org.
