Performance Testing applied
A view years back a client's back office system failed and queued all of their web service requests to our system. When they had fixed the issue, their queue was about to get emptied. Too many submissions were executed all at the same time. As a result OUR system went down.When we fixed it on our side, our management excused about the downtime and made a proposal to our client to announce next time when they start with a massive load again. Since it wasn't really a massive load, our client didn't find that statement very funny and responded similar like the penguin in the cartoon.
Here we are with a selection of my own cartoons. Continuous inspiration
is guaranteed from my daily and past experience working as a tester,
test automation engineer, test manager and developer. ThanX to Juan
Ortega my good old friend from my former-former-former workplace. His
ideas have helped a lot to improve my cartoons and he is still watching
me. ThanX also applies to Ernst Mueller who has some great talent of
turning weird scenarios into great sound bites that I take and turn into
my cartoons. ThanX also to the Software Testing Club and STQA Magazine
who regularly publish my cartoons in their magazines.
