Replaying IIS request logs using Apache JMeter

How would you validate a new API is compatible with an old API? While upgrading frameworks in a web application we’re building, that was exactly the question we were asking ourselves. Sure, we could write synthetic tests on each endpoint, but is that representative? Users typically find insane better ways to test an API, so why not replay actual requests against the new API? In this post, we’ll see how we can do exactly this using IIS and Apache JMeter. I’ve been using JMeter quite often in the past years doing web development, as it’s one of the most
customizable load test and functional test tools for web applications. The interface is quite spartan, but don’t let that discourage you from using JMeter. After all, this is Sparta! Collecting IIS logs Of course, one of the first things to do before being able to replay actual request logs is collecting those logs. Depending on the server configuration, these can be stored in many locations, such as C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles or C:\Windows\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1. I will leave it up to you where to find them. In our case, we’re using Azure Cloud Services to host our web applications. IIS logs are stored in a...(Read whole news on source site)
