Load Testing Crystal Reports with High Shareability Caching
page 1 of 8
Published: 29 Oct 2009
Abstract
In this second part of the series, Eric examines the usage of caching in Crystal Reports. He makes use of Visual Studio Team System testing to compare performance between cached and non-cached pages. After providing a short introduction and outlining the system requirements, he examines the test strategy in detail and provides a comprehensive coverage of both the NonCached and Cached loads with a detailed analysis of the results with the help of screen shots and source codes.

Introduction

As mentioned earlier this year in the first installation of this article series, it can be useful to have information on the performance of our BI tools. The purpose of this load testing article is to give some understanding into where caching can help improve performance. 

The BI tools used here are running on the web. In that first article, the testing was performed on standard Crystal reports. Now we show how to use the High Shareabliity Caching and test the reports using that model.

The High Shareablility Caching model is for reports with underlying data with minimal changes (think data warehouse). Also, if the parameters will be similar or run often, this report is a good target for high shareability.

System Requirements

·         Visual Studio 2008 Team Suite (Developer and Test Edition used)

·         Crystal Reports 10

·         SQL Server 2005
