Taking Performance Testing to the Next Level!
Performance testing is an essential activity while delivering critical software applications. Be it an e-commerce web application or a mobile app, identifying and determining the behavior of the traffic that is going to hit is the major concern. In view of past patterns and future outcomes, we need to understand, evaluate, and break down the level of activity that we need to perform to serve them without any deficiency. In addition, we should prepare to handle the situation gracefully if it reaches the peak load.
Being an ongoing process throughout the application life cycle, performance testing not only involves quality assurance professionals, but developer too along with the operations to run and maintain the application and have it perform up to the expectations. Performance testing requires multidimensional expertise starting from writing test scripts, monitoring, and analyzing test results, altering the application, and re-iterating the complete process until we get the optimized release.
Many elements play a vital role when coming up with a performance test strategy:
- Selecting of right performance tool
- Selection of environment between cloud and on premise
- Configuration of the environment
- Machine auto scaling capability
- Independent Vs Shared environment
- Effective Scenario designing
- Caching of static content
- Plan an effective approach for monitoring metrics
- Identification of metrics to be monitored, monitoring of performance results, and analyze it for any bottleneck/shortcoming
