This chapter delves on the automation aspects connected with performance issues. Adopting a manual method of testing the performance is neither desirable nor feasible. Automating the testing mode is an inevitable necessity. The strategy lies in choosing not only the best of the available tools but also to blend their productivity with human analytical skills. In this regard, it is important to bear in mind that use of tools as such does not amount to automating the entire testing process. This chapter addresses the task of setting up a process for automating the tests and highlights various issues involved in it. It also discusses some of the strategies for success in the automation of performance testing and concludes with a survey on tools currently available for testing in automation mode.
