Performance Testing

Performance testing is a non-functional testing technique performed to determine speed, effectiveness or stability of a computer, network, software program or device. Performance testing measures the quality attributes of the system, such as scalability, reliability and resource usage. This testing is the subset of performance engineering, which is focused on addressing
performance issues in the design and architecture of software product.

Performance testing does not aim to find defects in the application, it address a little more critical task of testing the benchmark and standard set for the application. Accuracy and close monitoring of the performance and results of the test is the primary characteristic of performance testing.

Why it is important?

Performance testing is very important because Non-performant (i.e., badly performing) applications generally don’t deliver their intended benefit to an organization and therefore
can’t be considered as reliable assets and the applications sent to market with poor performance metrics due to nonexistent or poor performance testing are likely to gain a bad reputation and fail to meet expected sales goals so it is very important to do performance testing before the release because it uncovers what needs to be improved before the product goes to market and if performance testing is not done before the release then software application can suffer from the issues like running slow while several users use it simultaneously, inconsistencies across different operating systems and poor usability.

There are some common problems which have wide variety of causes like

  • Software configuration issues (for the Web server, database, load balancers etc.);
  • Poor network configuration;
  • Software code (poorly optimized, or not allowing concurrent access),
  • Insufficient hardware resources.

The only way to pinpoint these performance problems before the application goes into

production is by simulating a large number of simultaneous users (load testing, stress testing).

What Sunbonn believes?

To achieve quality, reliability and speed, we at Sunbonn use a combination of Manual and Automation tool to ensure we can provide a rapid turn around and precise data set for given software on Performance front.

Our approach for performance testing:

  • Collect the business requirements and identify the key elements to set up the test environment.
  • Identify reasons for performance testing and define baseline values and create test plan.
  • Create test scenarios and define test data.
  • Execute test scenario
  • Validate and record results.
  • Analyze test results and make recommendations.

We use various tools to accomplish performance related tests and following are the different types of performance testing that we cover:
