Performance Testing of any application involves identifying bottlenecks related to infrastructure, network, code level issues and server resource utilization among others. A continuous and thorough monitoring of all the above aspects will not only help in identifying reasons for performance bottlenecks but also assist in performance engineering of the application providing insights into code level issues and DB slow queries.
More than a decade ago, most of the organizations opted for commercial tools like QTP, Silk Test etc. to automate the applications. But with the rise of agile methodologies and with the ever-increasing importance of continuous development & continuous integration, and with the availability of matured open source tools having a terrific supporting eco-system, they have unarguably become a viable alternative now. Hence, we see most of the organizations migrating from commercial tools to open source. Here are few key points to ponder on both Open Source and Commercial Tools option:
If we test the mobile applications the same way we test the traditional web applications, it will surely lead to many performance issues when real world users access the application. This is potentially because the user experience on mobile applications is affected altogether by some unique factors when compared to the web applications. Hence the strategy for mobile performance testing should be undoubtedly, unique.
Testing Session management logic (both allocation and deallocation) for Non-Persistent Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) desktop pool, especially with large user sets, is very critical for uncovering bottlenecks at the early stages. Otherwise, any failures might result in huge revenue losses for the customers in production.
Here at Innominds, we like exploring and testing. We like taking our findings and sharing them with each other so as to always be learning. That said, we wish to share with you some of the great findings we recently conducted involving AWSEC2. Read on to hear more.
Testing is one of the critical processes in application development. The success or failure of the application entirely depends on it. A typical performance test execution’s success depends on various interdependent factors like:
Today, web application owners are not as constrained for creating visual, rich web interfaces as they have been in the past. Never before has the visual interface of websites been so important. It is a true deciding factor for visitors to stay or turn-away, as more than 50% of people leave a site today in fewer than 15 seconds.
Digital business is shifting from a future strategic vision by IT leaders and digital leaders to providing a true competitive edge. New digital technologies are transforming the way your enterprise business operates, as you begin the balance of delivering better service to your customer, improving efficiency, and cutting costs.
