. This type of testing can be used to detect performance problems early in the lifecycle to verify whether a prototype or an implementation can meet stated specifications or requirements. If there are bottlenecks under low load conditions, these need to be identified and resolved during design or coding phases much before correction could become expensive. A tool is normally used to generate performance scripts and results, which increases repeatability. Increased repeatability also enhances capability for benchmarking.
This is done by recording performance measures under various load conditions the point at which the performance really starts degrading under given environment can be determined and this should meet the specifications. This test helps to ensure that the system performs as per requirements under anticipated load. .Load Testing The purpose of load testing is to test the scalability of an application by gradually increasing the load on the system. This also helps to determine the minimum configuration under which the system can perform smoothly.
database size. CPU usage. to discover the product’s capacity limits or to identify limits imposed by the product design or its environment. CPU time. memory size. One of the frequent approaches used is to starve the application of resources (memory.) and find breaking point of application. connection pools etc.Stress Testing The objective of this test is to probe the behaviour of the application under very heavy load (close to breaking point). data-traffic volumes etc. . This is done by exercising the product close to or beyond its documented limits in terms of transactions.
