The success of a website or application is dependent on its performance. This necessitates effective Performance Testing to ensure high performance. The speed, stability, and scalability are the key areas focused on performance testing. Measuring performance requires the use of certain metrics. With the help of the performance metrics, the effectiveness and the quality of performance can be easily calculated.
For a tester, one of the ideal ways to ensure that a system has the endurance to sustain actual load/business demand and at the same time serve multiple users reliably and in a timely manner is performance testing. We do performance testing so that we can provide management with the necessary information to make intelligent decisions about improvement and risk.
