Providing TPC-W with web user dynamic behavior

Autores UPV


The evolution of the World Wide Web from hypermedia information repositories to web applications such as social networking, wikis or blogs has introduced a new paradigm where users are no longer passive web consumers. Instead, users have become active contributors to web applications, so introducing a high level of dynamism in their behavior. Moreover, this trend is even expected to rise in the incoming Web. As a consequence, there is a need to develop new software tools that consider user dynamism in an appropiate and accurate way when generating dynamic workload for evaluating the performance of the current and incoming web. This paper presents a new testbed with the ability of defining and generating web dynamic workload for e-commerce. For this purpose, we integrated a dynamic workload generator (GUERNICA) with a widely used benchmark for e-commerce (TPC-W).
