For our WordPress test, we used WordPress version 6.2.2 with the Twenty Twenty-Three theme (version 1.1). We installed plugins FakerPress, WooCommerce, and WP Dummy Content Generator to enrich our test scenario.
We seeded the database with 3GB of dummy data using modules FakerPress and WP Dummy Content Generator.
Our test duration was 2 days. To handle this longer testing period, we switched from BlazeMeter (max test duration of 20 minutes) to Locust
, an open-source load-testing tool.
AWS EC2 instance c5.xlarge with installed Ubuntu 22.04 as the operating system, Caddy v2.6.4 as the web server, MariaDB 10.6 set to the default configuration with database size 3 GB.
We published the Locust results, MySQL Status, and MySQL Variables on GitHub
