TestPros understands that critical applications must be designed to respond under stress, especially when related to health or public safety, when large numbers of users may need to use the system at the same time.
We put our client’s applications and infrastructure through a series of performance tests to see how they respond to various levels of stress, from 100 to 100,000+ concurrent users. We also do load testing and stress testing to simulate conditions when the system is used by millions of users per hour.
What are software testing services?
Software testing services are a type of service that helps companies test their software to ensure that it is working properly. This can include things like quality assurance testing, beta testing, and performance testing. Software testing services can help companies find and fix bugs before their software is released to the public.
What is performance testing?
Performance testing is the process of putting software or hardware under controlled, periodic load in order to evaluate its performance and determine the cause of any failures. It can be used to measure factors such as speed, capacity, stability and scalability.
Examples of performance tests can include load testing, endurance testing, and stress testing.
How do you test service performance?
There are a number of ways to test service performance, depending on what you’re trying to measure. The three key criteria for performance testing are: accuracy, efficiency, and scalability.
One common way is to use synthetic load tests, which generate traffic similar to that of real users. You can also monitor performance metrics such as response time, error rate and throughput.
What software is used for performance testing?
There are many software programs that can be used for performance testing, such as LoadRunner, JMeter, and WebLOAD. Additionally, you can use tools like WebPageTest or Gomez to simulate user behavior and measure actual user experience.
What is load testing?
Load testing is a type of performance testing that is used to measure the performance of a system or application under load. It involves simulating a large number of users accessing the system or application at the same time in order to identify any possible slowdowns.
Can load testing be done manually?
Yes, load testing can be done manually if you have the time and resources to do so. However, using a specialized tool is often more efficient and can provide more accurate results. Some common software used for load testing are Apache JMeter, LoadRunner, and NeoLoad.
If you lack the resources, it’s best to reach out to a third-party testing company for help.
TestPros Approach to our Performance Testing Services
TestPros uses commercial tools including Hewlett Packard’s Performance Center and LoadRunner, as well a variety of open-source tools, to simulate the numbers of users performing the types of actions expected when using our client’s systems and applications.
We conduct performance tests at various stages of the system development lifecycle, but primarily once software functionality is confirmed to determine an accurate measure of the performance and availability under projected volumes of user traffic. Early stage testing helps our clients define required performance characteristics for subsystems, validating architectural designs early in the system lifecycle when corrections are less costly.
