Performance testing

Performance test is about the primary concerns of the applications like response time, reliability, resource usage and scalability. It is a test done to make sure that the applications performs better under the expected workload and despite seemingly insurmountable opposition. The goal of performance test is not only to eliminate the bugs but to avoid narrow areas of the application.

Focus of Performance Testing is on the

  • Speed- That determines quickness or responsive time of the application.
  • Scalability- Finds out maximum user load the software application can handle.
  • Stability-To check the stability of the application under varying loads.

Need

Performance test is a must to check the Speed, Scalability and Stability of an application in order to provide the information to the stakeholders. You may encounter issues such as inconsistency, poor usability and speed factor if the performance test is not done. Applications launched without performance test may cost your business and reputation.

Performance Test Process

  • Identify the performance acceptance criteria - This includes goals and constraints for throughput, response times and resource allocation. It is also necessary to identify project success criteria outside of these objectives and constraints.
  • Identify the performance acceptance criteria - This includes goals and constraints for throughput, response times and resource allocation. It is also necessary to identify project success criteria outside of these objectives and constraints.
  • Plan and outline execution tests - Determine how use is probably going to fluctuate among end clients and recognize key situations to test for all conceivable use cases. It is important to reproduce an assortment of end clients, design execution test information and blueprint what metrics will be gathered.
  • Configuring the test environment - Prepare the testing environment before execution. Also, arrange tools and other resources.
  • Implement test design - Create the performance tests according to your test design.
  • Run the tests - Execute and screen the tests.
  • Analyze, tune and retest - Consolidate, analyze and share test results. Fine tune and test again to see if there is an improvement or decrease in performance. Since improvements generally grow smaller with each retest, stop when bottlenecking is caused by the CPU. Then you may have the consider option of increasing CPU power.
