Mireille Raad (@migheille) has a post over at http://migh.info that highlights how to test your Moodle for speed using JMeter, a “desktop application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance” [link].  I’m not as technical as Ms. Raad, but if you’re looking for ways to test your Moodle install and create some benchmarks for performance, this is one possible way.

According to Mireille the post will,

show examples of how to test your moodle install using JMeter.  The example will show how to emulate the following steps:
1. user navigates to site
2. user logins + testing if login successful
3. user views some content like FLV video

The tutorial is easy to follow, concise and descriptive.  So if you’re looking for a holiday weekend project let us know how you fare.
