Performance testing smart contracts developed within VS Code using Hyperledger Caliper

The IBM Blockchain Platform extension for VS Code helps developers create, test, and debug smart contracts. However, a key concern for developers remains: How performant is the developed smart contract?
Hyperledger Caliper is a blockchain benchmarking tool that’s designed to perform benchmarks on deployed smart contracts, enabling analysis of throughput, latency, and resource consumption of the blockchain network as the smart contract is being used. This tutorial shows you how to use Hyperledger Caliper to performance test a Hyperledger Fabric smart contract that’s developed and deployed using the IBM Blockchain Platform VS Code extension.
Prerequisites
To complete this tutorial, you will need:
Microsoft VS Code with latest IBM Blockchain Platform extension installed
To have completed the inbuilt IBM Blockchain Platform VS Code tutorial 1, which develops and deploys demoContract@0.0.1 for interacting with assets of type MyAsset
Estimated time
Once you’ve completed the VS Code tutorial, which should take about 20 – 30 minutes, you will build

Stories on GitHub

Over the weekend I tried out an idea. It’s a little Node app that runs on the same server as the CMS that builds this blog. Every minute it looks at today’s posts, for those that have titles (like the post your’e reading now), it checks if it changed, and if so it renders it as Markdown and uploads it to GitHub in a calendar-based structure, along-side all the other parts of the blog I maintain automatically on GitHub. I like using GitHub this way, I have a feeling it’d make a good shared object database.
I’ve been hand-generating links to the GitHub version to get you all thinking about this idea, like this.
As an experiment this story is archived on GitHub.
I did this based on an assumption that I would be able to figure out a way to make it possible for any of my posts to become a
