We introduce OFBench, a new research benchmark for enterprise applications. OFBench is a load generator for the demo e-commerce component of the Apache OFBiz enterprise resource planning (ERP) framework. ERP applications are increasingly important in the cloud market due to the growing popularity of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, hence OFBench is useful to explore the resource consumption patterns arising in these applications. On client-side, OFBench features randomized customer

On server-side, it features JMX performance monitoring, business logic instrumentation, and synchronization with client-side monitoring via TCP sockets. We illustrate the execution of the benchmark in example runs and use them to investigate the overheads of JMX-based monitoring.
