When moving website to production we need to check every bottle neck which may hamper site performance. As per the requirement Magento provides different profiles by using which we can generate data of different count. These profiles defines different amount of Data to generate and varying from 800 products in small profile to 800,000 in extra large profile.
How to generate Data?
In terminal run the following command from your Magento root directory.
php bin/magento setup:perf:generate-fixtures setup/performance-toolkit/profiles/ce/small.xml
In the command above we have generated data using small profile, similarly other profiles can be found at setup/performance-toolkit/profiles/ce or setup/performance-toolkit/profiles/ee directory depending on your Magento edition.
Data set for different profile is as under:
|Parameter||Small profile||Medium profile||Large profile||Extra large profile|
