Comprehensive Performance Testing

Comprehensive Performance Testing

A key question for any software development team is, “Does the speed, responsiveness and stability of the system work at the levels anticipated when the software is released to the intended users?” Comprehensive performance testing ensures the system meets the performance criteria specified in the performance testing plan, thereby confirming the software will meet expectations in near real-world scenarios.

Performance testing will typically include system performance in terms of CPU, memory, network and disk usage and throughput in terms of transactions processed, number of concurrent and total users supported, and response times for user interfaces. Our experience in designing and conducting performance tests will help identify any performance bottlenecks prior to product launch.

Typical Performance Tests

Load Test

Evaluates software behavior under a specific expected load in terms of amount of data processed, number of transactions and users supported.

Stress Test

Identifies the upper limits of software capacity in terms of usage, transactions processed, data storage among others. modules work together correctly.

Volume Test

Evaluates software productivity under an increasing volume of stored and processed data and transactions.

Scalability Test

Measures an application’s performance in terms of its ability to scale up or scale down the number of user requests or other performance attributes.


Measures software capability under increased processing power and architecture changes

Configuration Test

Verifies the operation of software with multiple software and hardware configurations to identify the optimum setup.

Spike Test

Tests an application’s ability to handle extreme increments and decrements in the load.

Endurance Test

Tests a system’s ability to handle the expected load over a long period of time
