Hi all,

 

We are in the midst of a major upgrade to our Banner infrastructure, moving from HPUX to Linux and from physical to virtual servers.  I would like to be able to put the new system under some significant load in order to ensure that the new environment will perform as expected.  Has anyone on the list developed an effective process or found a third-party vendor that can perform a large-scale load test of Banner, ideally both INB and web self-service?  Thanks in advance.

Chris, we used a product/service called OpenLoad a few years ago when doing a similar conversion to our PeopleSoft environment. It worked well. I don't have all the contact info at my immediate disposal, but if you want it, I can try to get it ... Or just Google it. Enjoy Carmen A. Rahm Asst.

We contracted with Ellucian to do our load testing and was very happy with the results.
