Stress-testing camunda app server and db


#1

Dear Camunda community,

We are planning to run a stress test of the Camunda app server and database using some P.O.C. processes we recently created. Are there any out-of-the-box available tools for generating workload in Camunda? Our processes have external forms, decision tables, standard SOAP-connectors and a branching flow depending on the user input (non-linear).

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Ilya

Hi Ilya.

You can use REST api to run many instance of your process:
https://docs.camunda.org/manual/latest/reference/rest/process-definition/post-start-process-instance/
findout your url to run, generate payload,and put in into postman https://www.getpostman.com/
Postman can put variables from .csv in request, so if you can check all ways of your process.

Good Luck

Hi @kotskin !

Indeed, we can use REST API to initiate process instances and simulate JSON payloads. Thank you for the suggestion! This can be relatively easy automated via a Python script.
