Performance Testing Results to BSM 9.23 APM Advanced Certified Deployment

 Hi,

 

I would like to share with you the result from the BSM 9.23 APM Performance Testing – the full report is already available for few months on the SSO portal and you can download it here.

 

The deployment was tested with the following load:

  • 1107 monitored applications
  • 140 concurrent active sessions of connected users working in parallel.
  • Incoming rate of 1210 EPS (Events Per Second) from different data collectors (~400 RUM, 210 BPM, 600 SiteScope)
  • 211960 calculated CIs for the entire model

 

The BSM hardware profile used for these performance tests was a distributed environment including:

  • 1 BSM Gateway Server
  • 1 BSM Data Processing Server
  • 1 Database Server

The performance tests were executed three times using a simulated load. This load was created using HP LoadRunner scripts and simulated data designed to be as similar as possible to a real BSM environment. Eleven groups with 140 users used LoadRunner scripts to simulate various user actions as follows:

  • 5 groups with 55 users for User Viewing EUM reports
  • 3 groups with 60 users for User performing tasks in MyBSM
  • 3 groups with 25 users for User Viewing SLM reports

 

Scenario Details:

  • 140 users were ramped up in 70 minutes
  • Three load runs. A total of ~25 hours of load
  • The random delay between load transactions was 290-310 seconds

 

Here is the overall conclusion:

  • Transaction Response Time: 86% of the transactions completed in less than 8 seconds. (The average time was 3.61 seconds.) The Transactions Response Times were consistent and no major differences occurred when the performance tests were repeated.
  • CPU: The scenario consumed less than 63% of the CPU on our servers.
  • Memory: The scenario used 10.4 GB RAM on the Gateway Server (GW) and 19.8 GB on the Data Processing Server (DPS).
