In this paper, the authors illustrate the design and implementation of strategy employed for testing the performance of cloud-based system. The strategy involves the analysis of usage scenario of the system, formulation of performance test cases, test environment setup, performance test execution and reporting with the support of open source testing tool. It evaluates the system under test in handling different volume of users, both at server-end and user-end under different network environment from the perspective of system response time. Distributed testing approach was applied for server-side performance while manual approach was used for testing the performance at user-side.
