Rosh Haayin, Israel (PRWEB) September 4, 2008
RadView Software Ltd. (OTCBB: RDVWF), announced today that Advisys, Inc. has completed a load testing project with RadView's WebLOAD and AppLabs performance testing services which resulted in substantial improvements to system throughput.
Advisys offers software for financial services professionals using a SaaS model (Software as a Service). As the company's business grew, new features and users were added and the demand on the system increased. Advisys identified a need to ensure a high level of confidence in their system's ability to scale.
The objectives of the load testing project were:
- Determine the system's current capacity: How many users could it support?
- Understand how to best scale the system as the number of users grow:
Should the system be scaled horizontally by adding more servers, or should it be scaled vertically by adding memory and processing power to existing servers?
- Tune the system for optimal performance
"After reviewing the extensive metrics provided by AppLabs, we were able to fine tune our load balancing and .NET threading settings, resulting in a performance improvement by a factor of two in one case and by a factor of six in another case," said Jim Connolly, Director of Software Development for Advisys. "We're confident that our platform will meet the demand of our current and future clients for years to come."
Ralph Decker, Global Performance Services Practice Head at AppLabs said, "We have been a long-time RadView partner and WebLOAD is one of the leading web performance testing tools in the market. With WebLOAD's capabilities we were able to use the Performance Measurement Manager (PMM) to collect and correlate real time server statistics with application performance. WebLOAD provided this information in a clear and accurate manner, which helped us provide the right tuning recommendations."
"We are always happy when our customers realize significant ROI in a very short time period," said Rami Goraly, RadView's CEO. "WebLOAD is an enterprise-grade product with the necessary features to test the most demanding internet environments and this project has proved it once again."
