ContiPerf is a lightweight testing utility to easily leverage JUnit 4 test cases as performance tests, e.g. for continuous performance testing. It is inspired by JUnit 4's easy test configuration with annotations, and by JUnitPerf's idea of wrapping Unit tests for performance testing, but is more powerful and easier to use. It uses Java annotations for defining test execution characteristics and performance requirements. You can mark a test to run a certain number of times, or to be repeatedly executed for a certain amount of time. Performance requirements can be maximum, average, medium, or any percentile execution time. You can run tests in two different modes, using them as simple unit tests or performance tests. Easy integration with Eclipse and Maven. Export of an execution summary to a CSV file. A small library without external dependencies (only JUnit).
Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is based on an operational model in which the specification can be used to validate and optionally change the state of clients, but in a feature unique to bcfg2 the client's response to the specification can also be used to assess the completeness of the specification. Using this feature, bcfg2 provides an objective measure of how good a job an administrator has done in specifying the configuration of client systems. Bcfg2 is therefore built to help administrators construct an accurate, comprehensive specification. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states. It is designed to gracefully cope with manual system modifications. Bcfg2 can also enable the construction of complex change management and deployment strategies.
