The purpose of the Benchmark robot (BeBOT) is to simulate the operation of many clients simultaneously requesting specific services from the server computer(s).
BeBOT is really essential when sizing and tuning properly server platforms. In addition, BeBOT has the capacity to test to the limit the application and database software before the service is deployed into production, which, if used appropriately, is a promise for the future consumer’s satisfaction.
As a tool, BeBOT is quite intuitive and does not need an extensive learning for whoever is familiar with Java and the SOClass environment. Thanks to the use of XML, it is easy to set-up various test scenarios on any platform.
