Why Performance…? Does the application respond quickly enough for the intended users? Will the application handle the expected user load and beyond? Will the application handle the number of transactions required by the business? Is the application stable under expected and unexpected user loads? Are you sure that users will have a positive experience on go-live day?
Performance failure = Lost revenue Yahoo News : Fri Jun 6, 2008 4:50 PM ET Amazon Inc US website was down for about 2 hours Impact : Amazon Shares fell 4.59 percent Internet Business News: July 27,2006 Australia's JetStar airline website crashed as too many users went online to take advantage of holiday promotions.
Define Stress/Load/Performance Testing Stress Testing: Stress Testing is done in order to check when the application fails by varying the system resources such as RAM, HDD etc. and keeping the number of users as constant. Load Testing: Load Testing is done in order to check when the application fails by increasing the number of users and keeping the system resources as constant. Performance Testing: The term Performance can mean measuring response time, number of hits, resource utilization, or some other system characteristic( or group of them), by varying the number of users.
Key Benefits Obtain an accurate picture of end-to-end system performance Verify that new or upgraded applications meet your specified performance requirements Identify and eliminate performance bottlenecks during the development lifecycle Reduce production downtime and poor application performance
