However, since some performance issues depend on the input workloads, it is common to use time-consuming and complex iterative test methods, which heavily rely on human expertise. This paper presents an automated approach to dynamically adapt the workload so that issues (e.g. bottlenecks) can be identified more quickly as well as with less effort and expertise. We present promising results from an initial validation prototype indicating an 18-fold decrease in the test time without compromising the accuracy of the test results, while only introducing a marginal overhead in the system.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||ACM||Copyright (published version):||2017 ACM||Keywords:||Performance; Engineering; Testing; Analysis||DOI:||10.1145/3053600.3053614||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||ICPE '17 Companion Proceedings of the 8th ACM/SPEC on International Conference on Performance Engineering Companion||Conference Details:||8th ACM/SPEC on International Conference on Performance Engineering Companion, L'Aquila, Italy, 22-26 April 2017|
