The IoT industry is developing explosively. As the scale of endpoints continues to grow and business logic becomes more complex, it is necessary to verify the availability and reliability of the platform when a large number of devices are connected before the IoT platform is officially launched so as to ensure system quality. Therefore, the value and necessity of IoT performance tests are gradually highlighted. If you’re delivering services, then testing your IoT system can help you find bottlenecks in performance and help you plan ahead for scalability.
IoT can consist of any number of different devices using diverse protocols strung together with complex integration architecture. This can make it challenging to design effective and meaningful tests for it. This series of articles will take the IoT platform based on EMQX as an example to introduce how to use performance test tools to verify and test platform-related quality indicators.
