What is Performance Testing?



In this post we will discuss about what is performance testing.

You can check my previous testing articles on:

- What is Defect Age in software testing?

- QTP scripts examples

- Automated Performance Testing and its Parameters

In Performance testing we are checking we are concentrating on speed in processing of  a software by checking below factors:

- Execution of as software under customer expected configuration and customer expected load to calculate speed in processing, is called as Load Testing. Here load means number of concurrent users using our software.

- Execution of our software under customer expected configuration and more than customer expected load to estimate reliability is called as Stress Testing.

- Execution of our software under customer expected configuration and sudden increments of load to estimate reliability is called as Spike Testing.

- Execution of our software under customer expected configuration and continuous load long time to estimate durability is called as Endurance/Durability/ Longuity Testing.
