In this paper, we present an approach for performance testing of software services. In our approach, we use Probabilistic Timed Automata (PTA) to model the workload of the system, by describing how different user types interact with the system. We use these models to generate load in real-time and we measure different performance indicators. An in-house developed tool, MBPeT, is used to support our approach. We exemplify with an auction web service case study and show how performance information about the system under test can be collected.
