Performance Testing

Performance testing is a form of software testing that how an application is performing in a defined environment under specified load. Performance Testing is conducted to evaluate the compliance of a system or component with specified performance requirements. It checks the response time, reliability, resource usage, scalability of a software program under their expected workload. It also used for capacity planning purposes. The purpose of Performance Testing is not to find functional defects but to eliminate performance bottlenecks in the software or device. Types of Performance Testing Load testing – Measures the application performance with different load. Target is to checks the application’s ability to perform under anticipated load in production. The objective is to identify performance bottlenecks before the software application goes live. Stress testing – Meant to measure system performance outside of the parameters of normal working conditions. It involves testing an application under extreme workloads to see… Read more“Performance Testing”
