This repository holds all the scripts that are run on the nightly performance environment. The environment consists out of:

  • 3 Large (8GB RAM) centOS machines running Cassandra 1.1.5

  3. Generate 10 batches of which each batch holds 1000 users, 2000 groups and 5000 content items
  4. Load those batches in.
  5. Package the new data and generate Tsung tests (See node-oae-tsung)
  6. Run the tsung tests.
  7. Publish all the collected data to Circonus and in the www directory of the driver machine.
