One 、 Preface

Business modeling in performance scenarios is a very important part of performance testing . And in our real project , There are too many cases where business models are different from online business models . There may be a variety of reasons , These reasons greatly reduce the value of performance testing .

In today's article , What I want to write is the simplest logic . That's from gateway based access Log statistical analysis is transformed into a general business model in a specific scenario . Please refer to 《 Performance test practice 30 speak 》 Medium 【14 Performance test scenarios : How to understand the business model ?】

Common business scenario model . That is to add up all the business of the day , Add up the trading volume of each business all day , Calculate the proportion of each business volume .

Two 、 Front work

First, we take the gateway of the day from the peak day access journal , Here are some examples 1400+ Ten thousand records

[[email protected] ~]# wc -l access.log 
14106419 access.log
 Copy code 

As for gateway access How to configure logs , See the previous article SpringCloud Two or three things of log in pressure test

What we got access The content of the log is generally as follows : - - [23/Feb/2021:13:52:14 +0800] "POST /mall-order/order/generateOrder HTTP/1.1" 500 133 8201 52 ms
 Copy code 

The corresponding fields are as follows :

address, user, zonedDateTime, method, uri, protocol, status, contentLength, port, duration.
 Copy code 

that , Here comes our need , How to analyze access journal , Get the maximum processing time of each interface gateway 、 minimum value 、 Average and visits .

Here I extend the statistical analysis to get the processing time of each interface gateway , Facilitate the performance evaluation of our interface .

3、 ... and 、 To write Python Scripts complete data analysis

We know that in data analysis 、 In the field of machine learning, it is generally recommended to use Python, Because this is Python What you are good at . And in the Python In data analysis ,Pandas The frequency of using is very high , If our daily data processing work is not very complicated , You usually use a few words Pandas The code can regulate the data . So here we just need to put it in the log duration Fields are stored in pandas The basic data structure of DataFrame in , And then by grouping 、 Data statistics function can be realized .

The whole project includes 4 Parts of :

  • The first part is data loading , First we pass open File read data loaded into memory . Note that when the log file is large, do not use readlines()、readline(), Will read all logs to memory , Cause memory to be full . So use it here for line in fo Iterative approach , Basically no memory ;
  • The second step is data preprocessing . Read log file , have access to pd.read_table(log_file, sep=’ ‘, iterator=True), But here we set up sep Cannot match segmentation properly , So first use split Division , And then deposit pandas;
  • The third step is data analysis ,Pandas Provides IO The tool can read large files in blocks , Use different block sizes to read and then call pandas.concat Connect DataFrame, And then use Pandas Common statistical function analysis ;
  • The last step is data loading , Save the statistical analysis results to Excel In file .

Download dependency Library :

#pip3 install  Package name  -i  The source of url  Temporary source change 
# Tsinghua University source :

#  Powerful data structure library , For data analysis , Time series and statistics, etc 
pip3 install pandas -i 

#  Handle  URL  My bag  
pip3 install urllib -i 

#  Install build execl Related modules of the form  
pip3 install xlwt -i 
 Copy code 

The specific code is as follows :

# Count the processing time of each interface 
# Please create... In advance  log  And set up  logdir
import sys
import os
import pandas as pd
from urllib.parse import urlparse
import re

'''  Global parameter  '''
# Log file storage path 
# Store the log related fields required for statistics 

print ("read from logfile \n")

'''  Data loading and preprocessing  '''
for eachfile in os.listdir(logdir):
    with open(logfile, 'r') as fo:
        for line in fo:
            # Filter the exception part of the field 
            if spline[6]=="-":
            elif spline[6]=="GET":
            elif spline[-1]=="-":
                # It can be interpreted as url Address 
                parsed = urlparse(spline[6])
                # print('path :', parsed.path)
                # Exclude numerical parameters 
                interface = ''.join([i for i in parsed.path if not i.isdigit()])
                # print(interface)
                # Rewrite file 
                with open(logfile_format, 'a') as fw:
print ("output panda")

'''  Data analysis  '''
# Read the statistical field into dataframe in 
reader=pd.read_table(logfile_format,sep='\t',engine='python',names=["interface","duration(ms)"] ,header=None,iterator=True)
while loop:
    except StopIteration:
        print ("Iteration is stopped.")


df_groupd_min= df_groupd.min()
df_groupd_mean= df_groupd.mean()
df_groupd_size= df_groupd.size()

'''  Data loading  '''
print ("output excel")
 Copy code 

Running results :

 The statistical results

In this way, we can easily get the business volume statistics and interface processing time on peak days .

Four 、 Summary

Through today's example, we should be able to see the adoption of Python For performance engineers, it reduces the technical threshold of data analysis . I believe in today's DT Time , Any position needs to use the thinking and ability of data analysis .
