As today’s, digital-age world heavily relies on software and computer systems, performance downtime can have a lasting, negative impact on the end customers. Remember Amazon’s one hour of downtime on its biggest Prime Day? Just an hour of performance issues cost the eCommerce giant a whopping loss in sales between $72 million and 99 million dollars.
Therefore, mobile & web solutions must be free from any functionality issues to offer seamless business operations. Software performance testing has emerged as the practice that helps evaluate how a system performs in terms of responsiveness and stability under a particular workload.
Read on with this article as we provide a comprehensive insight into the essential considerations of performance testing and how to go about it.
It helps to test the stability, speed, scalability, and responsiveness of the software. It helps examine several indicators such as:
Leverage our full-cycle performance testing services to mitigate potential risk involved in your software.
Metrics are a baseline for any test. By monitoring the appropriate factors, it will help you analyze and track areas that need more attention with practical solutions for improvisation. Some common factors include:
It is vital to finalize goals and constraints of performance acceptance metrics, including throughput, response time, load time, transactions, resource allocation, and more.
Software testers identify various test scenarios considering end-user variability and plan out some data to conduct performance testing. All such details are included in the test plan.
Prepare the test environment on which the testing is to be performed before execution. Also, it includes an arrangement of resources and tools.
Create performance tests according to your test design.
In this step, the tests are executed, and their performance gets monitored for further optimization.
This is the last step where the results are analyzed. Based on the analysis, the developed software is fine-tuned and retested again to check whether it requires further improvements.
Further, if you wish to understand how we help businesses choose a performance engineering-driven culture, do give this blog a read.
Written in Java, it is one of the most popular open-source tools used for running load tests. JMeter helps analyze and measure the performance of a range of web and web service applications.
An enterprise-grade load testing tool used for generating reliable test use cases scenarios for mobile and web testing. It is capable of simulating thousands of concurrent users. This makes it ideal for testing heavy traffic loads and detect weak points, constraints, and performance bottlenecks in the developed app.
It is the most widely used load testing tool designed by Micro Focus. LoadRunner is used to test applications, verifying the application performance, and functionality. It enables software testers to have complete visibility over the software’s end-to-end performance.
