Hi all,

I am thinking if nowadays makes sense to build a tool which records the navigation process which users will do and reproduces it automatically (JMeter behaviour) in order to prevent a shortage of resources like RAM or GPU on the server(if a shortage is expected the app set more server resources ), having into account the existence of Amazon Web Services.

Practical example:

A business owner who is going to appear on TV tonight wants to avoid that the server will crashes in the middle of the TV show, so he just can give full resources to Amazon and forget about it. (but not about the bill..haha)

What do you think? Make sense develop a tool like that one nowadays?

Any comments, please?

Regards, Isaac

AWS EC2 already supports Autoscaling, and it's what provides the "elasticity" for their "Elastic" Compute Cloud.
When some cloudwatch or other application metrics reach some threshold (like 90% CPU, say), then new load balanced instances are automatically created to take up some of the load.
A tool that makes it easy/easier for non-technical people to configure may be useful, although I fail to see how JMeter record and replay fits into the workflow.
it's a teeny, tiny, wafer thin ad:
