CLIF, load injection performance test framework

The tests are confronted with a double compromise: test the time compared to the placing time on the market and the costs compared to the return on investment. However, for a given amount of time and money, the more you test, the better the performance and robustness of your applications and services. Response times are faster, failures are fewer and a reduced execution infrastructure will provide satisfied customers and optimized investment and operational costs.

CLIF is a free performance test software initiated by Orange and INRIA in 2003 within the ObjectWeb consortium, then OW2, and managed by Orange since. Currently, CLIF stands out by providing a unique solution for performance testing, QoE monitoring and automated integration testing in the domestic IoT universe.

With CLIF, optimize load tests at lower cost using the same open source framework for almost all of your technologies: Web applications and services, directories, databases, telecommunication platforms … And your team of development will benefit from using CLIF from their favorite Eclipse environment, or obtain nightly performance reports via the Hudson / Jenkins plug-in.

The result is a number of success stories within Orange, such as Orange Wifi Access, the telephony test dedicated to the trading rooms (Etrali), or the Quality of Experience (QoE) WiFi monitoring in the Crédit Agricole agencies.

  1. OW2 is an independent open source community committed to making available to everyone the best and most reliable enterprise computing infrastructure software, including middleware, application platforms and cloud computing technologies. The mission of the OW2 Consortium is to develop a code base of open source software and to foster a vibrant community and business ecosystem. […]

  2. OW2 consortium presents a tool called clif-web-proxy. Instantly and transparently generate your scenarios for testing the performance of your web applications with CLIF, from within your browser. This project aims to make it easy to capture a web “session”, in order to be complementary for tools that tests network behaviour/load of web apps (like CLIF). […]

  3. Paris Open Source Summit, the annual meeting of European open source, was held on December 5th and 6th at the Pullman Docks in Paris for the 4th consecutive year in a row. This fantastic edition gathered around 5500 experts and amateurs around the theme: the place of open source and French actors in the digital […]
