Project in figures

  • 35 seconds waiting
  • 1 developer, 3 QA
  • 100,000 users

What they had:

  • The number of users did not exceed 3000. As the load increased, the response time of the server increased from 3 seconds to a minute;
  • The video was completely cached in memory, and one user's video could take up 1.5 GB of RAM;
  • The IT infrastructure consisted of Amazon servers.

What we did

  • Carried out load-testing;
  • Created a load on the Amazon server to 100,000 users. To prevent the channel from becoming clogged when testing video content, we added more servers;
  • To prevent the memory from being consumed by 2-3 users, we reorganized the broadcast system. Now we get the video for not more than 10 seconds, then the connection is broken, and again continues for another 10 seconds. Such a gap takes away minimal resource, occurs unnoticed by the server and saves memory;
  • Wrote scripts for testing video content, in order to automatically monitor video problems.


Testing Tools: Bitbucket, Jira, JMeter, BeanShell, VLC-player, Amazon (AWS)
