Tuning the benchmark

At this point, we already have a basic workflow of creating a test plan in Apache JMeter and analyzing the preliminary results. From here, there are several parameters we can adjust to achieve our benchmark objectives. In this section, we will iterate on our test plan to identify the limits of our Docker application.

Increasing concurrency

The first parameter that we may want to tune is increasing the Loop Count of our test plan. Driving our test plan to generate more requests will allow us to see the effects of the load we induced to our application. This increases the precision of our benchmark experiments, because outlier events such as a slow network connection or hardware failure (unless we are testing that specifically!) ...
