nose-performance is a performance testing plugin for Nose. It's primary goal is to monitor calls to network applications, such as the database and memcache.
Integrates with Zumanji to report and archive results.
Create some tests which inherit from PerformanceTest:
from noseperf.testcases import PerformanceTest
client = Redis()
for x in xrange(2 ** 16):
client.add('test-%x' % x, '1')
Run your test suite with the --with-performance option:
python runtests.py --with-performance example/
(We're using runtests.py because we inject django-nose to test our Django hooks)
Results are recorded to test_results/performance.json by default:
ls -lh test_results
-rw-r--r-- 1 dcramer staff 1.0M Aug 27 18:10 performance.json
See the included tests in example/ and nosetests --help | grep performance for more information.
The plugin will only collect tests which inherit from PerformanceTest. Included are two simple test cases, one for generic installs, and one for Django:
Currently the data captured includes hooks for the following:
- Django ORM
- Django Cache
