WG: Performance

Lead(s): Linda M Place


The Performance Working Group is a team of interested organizations working collaboratively to improve Sakai framework and tool scalability, reliability, and performance times. Shared design, resources, results, and discussions of this working group will supplement the functionality testing of the QA Working Group.

Please feel free to add resources to this shared space.

Community Performance Testing Effort

Performance Testing Area

Community Performance Testing Resources

For the past year, an effort has been underway to enable all Sakai Community members to participate in performance testing without needing to make significant resource expenditure. A Proof of Concept (see slides) for this initiative was presented at the 9th Sakai Conference in Paris, 1 July 2008. Shared resources for this effort, including "how to" documents, environment provisioning materials, Grinder scripts, use case scenarios, and test results, are located in this space.

NOTE: Resources being added regularly as contributions from members are available.
