How can we effectively manage our performance scripts? When the new codes checked in, the performance scripts should run under certain loads to measure how fast/slow it is.

So, any ideas for automated performance testing strategies?

"When the new codes checked in, the performance scripts should run". That's an "idea for automated performance testing strategies" What more do you need? –  S.Lott Jun 28 '11 at 9:54
You could use CruiseControl to manage this for you...when there is a check-in it will do the build, run your unit tests and then you can add an action for it to run your perf test if the previous two succeed. –  Jeremy Jun 28 '11 at 13:03

I use a combination of a Continuous Integration server such as Hudson/Jenkins or Cruise Control to execute a JMeter job each time the code is checked in.

Really, cool! I use Jmeter as well. Looks the idea for automated performance testing is workable. I'll your recommend sever for my test. Thanks! –  Vance Jun 28 '11 at 17:27
No worries, it's actually fairly trivial to set-up. Packt publishing has a not so great book on JMeter which can help a little as well. –  Martijn Verburg Jun 28 '11 at 17:34
