A typical (and basic) strategy for testing application performance is by making file transfer from machine A to machine B. Nonetheless, this technique adds up other unwanted factors such as I/O disk performance which can degrade actual performance. The most ideal approach to maximize the throughput on different parts of a system and to limit the delay of the machines. High/Mid-end machines (servers, workstations or PCs) can be tested, as long as they are not dependent on other tasks during testing activity.
When do you use Performance Testing?
Application Performance tests are important before huge events, for example, e-commerce sites selling discounted branded items at the end of year. So it is essential to test consistently to the limit the possibility of application failure. This tests encourages system administrator to discover traffic spikes and gives additional time to fix any bottlenecks.
Reconz Performance Testing Methodology
1. Identify the testing environment
Gather information on the equipment, applications, and devices accessible on which the test is going to take place.2. Identify metrics and measurements
Recognize measurements to be captured during Performance Testing activity. For example, reaction time and throughput.This includes identifying success criteria based on Performance Testing scenarios.3. Plan and structure execution tests
Design Performance Testing senarios accordingly with selected metrics. This need to be done in several models4. Organized the test scenarios
Configure the components and test scenarios with tools needed to monitor resources5. Execute the test scenarios
During the test, data is generated and traffic is monitored6. Analyze report
Analyze the data collected and present the finding to customized report
