In a Scalability Story, Eric Sink tells a story about a tool (Crowd Test) he build for automatic scalability testing. This simple tool acted as folllows:
- Randomly choose an action to perform.
- Sleep for a random amount of time.
- Go back to step 1.
The immediate results were a nightmare!
If you’re want to be sure you don’t have any issues of thread safety, build this little tool for yourself!
