Stress Testing, Load Testing, Spike Testing
No matter how much rich functionality your application delivers, it holds no worth if real time performance doesn’t match the expected scalability. In this heat of competition, enterprises starve for an effective tool that can predict the durability of the application in different conditions. Performance testing, if done correctly can yield dynamic results in evaluating the scope of an application under real time stress conditions and that too at any stage of SDLC. It helps demonstrate and compare two systems to find the better one.
Performance Testing Types:
Load Testing: Evaluating the application response when the servers are subjected to peak user load for a specified duration.
Stress Testing: Evaluating the application by increasing the load over a period of time with intent of finding the breaking point.
Endurance Testing: Pushing a system with significant load for a particular duration and check how it behaves under constant use.
Spike Testing: Behavior of system if the load conditions are increased abruptly.
Volume Testing: Testing an application’s performance with a particular amount of data.
