If you own a gadget like a Playstation Portable (PSP), have you ever thought about what makes the gadget stand long hours of usage? Think that a PSP has a lot of uses such as playing games, storing images, music and movie files, listen to music or even watching a movie on the miniature screen. It is really amazing that such a small gadget can handle much workload. That is because it underwent a series of performance testing before it was released into the market.
Every product has to undergo a sequence of performance testing. Without the performance testing, the capacity of a product to function under stress as well as its behavior on a constant workload cannot be determined. Performance testing, therefore, measures the effectiveness of a certain product by checking its reliability, scalability, and interoperability.
Kualitatem Testing Outsourcing Company takes pride in offering high-grade performance testing services to software companies worldwide. They conduct performance testing using test automation tools such as the J Meter, Load Runner, Astra Load and WAPT. These tools are used to diagnose what parts of a software contributes most to the poor performance or to establish output and entry levels for maintained satisfactory response time.
Later on, a complete performance testing analysis report is compiled highlighting the performance issues and recommendations as per analysis. Various types of performance testing parameters are used to determine the routine of an application. These performance testing parameters consists of:
Stress or Load Testing – performed to identify the stability of an application under certain levels of load. During this test Kualitatem attempts to stress the application to the point of failure. This reveals all the weak points in the application.
Recoverability Testing – checks if the application is self recoverable or not .Then behavior of application is checked beyond its point of failure. And if the application is self recoverable it is then catered for any contingency plans.
Endurance or Longevity Testing – monitors the application behavior on a constant, moderate workload for a long period of time which pinpoints bottlenecks and component limitations.
Performance Tuning – modifications are made to the system to make it ready for managing higher load.
