Posted by Claire Mackerras

This time requires the need to keep up with the speed while also meeting increased expectations of quality. Performance testing services here plays a vital role in ensuring the same to identify & eliminate the performance bottlenecks of your software. The main purpose of it is to identify the scope of improvement of the product before it is launched for customer use.

 

Different quality attributes of the system are measured using performance testing, like speed, stability, and scalability. These attributes help in determining how quickly does the application response, the maximum number that can be handled by the user, and to check if the application performs stably under varying load conditions.

 

How to do Performance Testing?

  1.  Identify Testing Environment 
  2. Determining the Performance Criteria
  3. Planning and Designing
  4. Configuration of Test Environment
  5. Implementing Test Design
  6. Run Tests
  7. Analysis

performance testing tools

As code changes from a team that constantly integrates the original structures and bug fixes can have a huge impact on how an application appears to be and functions on different devices and browsers and this can quickly affect that application load around the machines. And this is where performance testing becomes crucial to a well-rounded QA strategy.

Let’s take a look at some of the performance testing tools:

  1. Apache JMeter

Apache JMeter is an open source load testing tool. It is a mainly a performance testing tool and can be integrated with the test plan.

2. HP LoadRunner

This is an HP product and can be used as a performance testing tool. This HP product can be purchased from its HP software division. Besides, it is very much useful in understanding and ascertaining the performance and outcome of the system when there is an actual load.

Manual performance testing Services

The goal of performance testing is not to find bugs but to eliminate performance bottlenecks. Performance testing helps in establishing speed, scalability, and stability of the software application. So, designing and executing these tests are critical for ensuring stability of an application. An effective performance testing strategy is essential for highlighting most of the performance issues. It could be associated with the database, network, software, bandwidth, or the hardware.

Why it is critical for enterprises to invest in Performance Testing:


1. It will generate more revenue: The faster the web application is, the more it will generate revenue. For applications such as e-commerce applications have to provide an easy and secure gateway to the customers which results in better transaction and repeated visits on the application.


2. Provide customers with better website speed: A slow and lousy website results in repelling the crowd coming on the site. The automation testing tools enable the teams to check the speed and performance of the website. Users should be able to load the site with basic connectivity and bandwidth that helps in maintaining the interest and keeping them engaged.


3. Improve quality by Resolving defects before getting into market: Performance testing gives customers the information about their application regarding speed, stability and scalability. Performance testing helps in uncovering what needs to be improved before the product goes live. Without performance testing, application is likely to suffer from various issues such as running slow with simultaneous users.

website performance testing services

Mobile apps are no more different from web apps, though; applying the same testing techniques will produce inaccurate results or fail to exposure of underlying performance issues.

Types of Apps

There are three main types of apps that are used in a mobile device. Identifying the types of mobile & website performance testing services and the type of mobile application under the testing is quite challenging. The types of mobile device are:

Native Apps
Native Apps are developed by mobile OS, for instance, apps developed in Java for Android mobiles.

Web Apps
Web apps are designed in languages like, PHP, JavaScript, HTML, etc. in such a way that can be accessed via internet connection.

Hybrid Apps
Hybrid apps are designed to access web applications that are embedded in the mobile itself, for example, Apple Apps Store, Twitter app, LinkedIn app, etc.
