Automated Scalability Testing of Software as a Service

Abstract : Scalability has been studied in several areas of Computer Science and scalability testing and evaluation of con- temporary software systems is an active topic. However, most of the times, these activities are still performed in a predominantly ad hoc fashion. There are a few tools to automate this process, but they present several restrictions about what systems can be tested and how to evaluate scalability. In this paper, we introduce a flexible and extensible framework for automated scalability testing of software offered as a service and propose to evaluate the scalability using hypothesis tests. Additionally, we argue that, instead of stating if a system is scalable or not, we should find out how it could scale better.
