Q&A from the Session

Any specific performance tests for author env for AEMaaCS, Previously we had toughday but it seems to be outdated. Toughday was always just a test-suite to evaluate the (hardware-) plattform, and less something to test an application. Toughday is still working, but the results are less meaningful.

Question from the chat:

“Does the use of Dynamic Media change the processing just described?”


No, when using Dynamic Media, assets are uploaded to AEM and they are sent to Dynamic Media at the same time that they are sent to the Asset Compute service.  We will not proceed to custom workflow processing until the asset processing has been completed in both of these services.



Question from the chat:

“Like workfront integration?” (followup to a question about the use of the aem-upload library)


We are currently working on improving the integration between Workfront and AEM Assets, but I am not up to date on the specifics of what we are implementing there.  If assets are being uploaded from Workfront into AEM, it will be done using this library, though.

Remaining question from the session: “Any specific performance tests for author env for AEMaaCS, previously we had toughday but it seems to be outdated.”


Toughday is still usable with AEM as a Cloud Service. But given that it just runs through some customizable scenarios made it most usable to benchmark certain environments (hardware, maybe JVM settings) against each other. With AEM as a Cloud Service you don't have much choice regarding the underlying hardware, and instead of scaling up AEM as a Cloud Service scales horizontally. So the significance of the results are very different.
