but it looks like they are not allowed to use that site any longer.
I am really dissapointed..
It is very surprising that actually no decent books about load testing tools were published for 20+ years of their history. So it is nice to see Performance Testing With JMeter by Bayo Erinle published by Packt Publishing.
It is, of course, a rather basic book. I don't think that it would be very useful to experienced JMeter users. However, it may be very good for somebody who is doing their first steps in performance testing and need step-by-step tutorial to introduce them into the topic. Perhaps users of other load testing tools may benefit from the book if they want a quick introduction into JMeter (and don't want spent time figuring out what is what in documentation). The book does exactly what the title says: explains one way of how basic performance testing may be done with JMeter 2.9. It doesn't deviate much into available options (which exist in abundance), doesn't talk much about generic principles of performance testing or performance engineering. However, if complemented by more generic performance engineering books, it may be a good starting point for a journey into performance testing (especially considering that no other alternatives worth mentioning available except tool-related documentations and articles).
The book is 130 pages long and topics covered may be seen from the chapter names:
Chapter 1: Performance Testing Fundamentals
Chapter 2: Recording Your First Test
Chapter 3: Submitting Forms
Chapter 4: Managing Sessions
Chapter 5: Resource Monitoring
Chapter 6: Distributed Testing
Chapter 7: Helpful Tips
These 130 pages include step-by-step instruction (with screenshots) of installing and configuring JMeter, Tomcat (used for resource monitoring), and Vagrant/Puppet/AWS (used for distributed testing).
Suggestions to create and run scripts against public sites such as Apache and Google sound rather questionable to me. Providing a sample web site built to accompany the book to run other exercises against looks like a much more interesting and valid approach (assuming that the web site stays up and running).
Overall, I guess, the book fulfills its purpose to introduce using JMeter 2.9 for basic performance testing and may be a good starting point for a beginner. Although I am not sure that the author always chooses the simplest ways to introduce topics. And I definitely advise not to stop there if you want to become a good performance tester.
P.S. Another book of the same author - JMeter Cookbook - may be a good complement to this book.
The book not only covers Jmeter topics but also other tools & plugins which can be used with Apache Jmeter.
I would appreciate Bayo Erinle and team who came out with book as there are not much resource related to performance testing using jmeter.
Last i would say surely go garb it.
For both initial research and early implementation, I can recommend this book as a guide to JMeter.
