  10. Introduction UTF Queenstown May 6 - 9 2008 • Goal • Prove that AB Suite Developer works with 60 simulated users on the available infrastructure • Identify possible performance bottlenecks • Requirements • Tests should be repeatable • Test results should be reproducible • Simulated user should perform everyday tasks • Test controller • Test results Page 10
