Performance Testing Services The Thought Frameworks Way!

Introduction

One of the critical software testing practices in software quality assurance is Performance Testing. In any Software Development Life Cycle, the software applications will have performance bottlenecks. The goal of Performance Testing Services is not to find bugs but to identify and eliminate those performance bottlenecks, which in turn will have a positive impact on the software application’s speed, responsiveness and reliability. Software Performance Testing makes way to meet the expected service levels in production.

Definition

Software Performance testing is a non-functional software testing, it is the practice in which the system is evaluated for its performance, responsiveness & stability of a computer, network, software program or device under a particular workload. The key aspects like speed, robustness, and reliability are evaluated

Significance

Why is Performance Testing & Engineering required?

  • To identify database and API related issues.
  • To enhance the website's performance, stability, dependability, reduce risk and more importantly enhance the brand reputation.
  • The success and productivity of the application depends directly on a planned and properly implemented performance testing which is the key to effective holistic digital strategy
  • To ensure a positive customer journey/user experience

Methodology

Software Performance Testing Methods

Continuous Performance Testing

We follow and incorporate agile, DevOps and continuously integrate automation solutions into software development. This helps customers accelerate their ability to deliver.

 Capacity Planning

We understand the client’s current requirement and suggest capacity planning factoring in their future expansion. This involves evaluating the storage, computer hardware, software and connection infrastructure resources required for future periods.

Stress Testing

Stress Testing involves testing a software beyond its normal operational limits, often to a breaking point, in order to observe the results. It is particularly important for mission critical software applications. This will avoid the risks of failures and degradation of the services when there is a high load.

Load Testing

Applying demand on a software system and recording its response is referred to as load testing. We simulate several users who are currently accessing the application and evaluate the system's responsiveness under various conditions of load. This test often assesses the application's speed and capacity. Load testing is relevant for multi-user systems. 

Soak Testing/Endurance Testing

Soak testing is the process of testing a system to detect performance issues by generating significant user load for an extended period of time and then measuring and analyzing the behaviour of the system under test. 

Spike Testing

Spike testing involves rapidly increasing or decreasing the load generated by a large number of users and observing the system's behaviour. The goal is to determine whether the system can handle extreme variation in traffic.

Timing

What would be the right time to do Software Performance Testing?

Performance testing can be incorporated into either the Waterfall Model (we wait until the end of the development cycle to begin Performance testing) or the Agile Model (we start the performance testing from the very beginning with unit tests).
