English abstract:
In software testing, verification of a system's dynamic properties such as auto-scaling behavior can be vital for a project's success. However, testing such properties can be difficult when parts of the system are not implemented yet, mocked or simply not available, as those parts might have a great impact on the system's runtime behavior. To address this issue, we introduce FakeLoad, an open-source Java library capable of producing exible, on-demand system load within applications or tests. Our evaluation shows that the library is able to produce the requested system loads with high accuracy and consistency.
