A wise man once said, Only those who do nothing make no mistakes. That is why we devote this post to mistakes often made in load and performance testing projects. This post was written not only for managers who are up to their first testing project, but also for leading engineers who have had many of them and have many stories of their own to tell.
The focus of this text is on performance testing, although there obviously may be many mistakes in any part of a complex IT project.
Software testing is a crucial part in creating a successful project. By assessing every facet of the product, a developer will know if the code meets business requirements. It’s through the testing that companies increase user tolerance and improve the performance of their apps.
Having said that, testing is only as beneficial as it is efficient. There are two main approaches to testing – manual or automated. Both are critiqued and advocated all over the web, so choosing the one to fit your project is not an easy task. In this post, we’ll give you a brief rundown on the difference between them, their respective pros and cons, and the ways developers can take advantage of both.
Modern contact centers are often complex systems that involve close interaction between IVR, customer relation management (CRM), and many other services. Therefore, besides testing the performance of IVR itself and telephone communication channels, PFLB offers comprehensive testing services that allow you to evaluate the performance of both overall and individual services and to identify the influence of system components on each other.
The advent of smart devices in the past decade has been a milestone for the human race. The Internet of Things, along with advanced analytics and data science, are the face of digital transformation. According to one report, 79% of US consumers use at least one connected device in their homes. From smartphones, lightbulbs, and […]
Load testing is necessary when deploying any new system or redistributing data streams among existing systems. I think everybody knows this or at least would guess this is the case.Everything seems simple: grab your load testing tool, record some traffic, get some scripts, run your tests, and enjoy the process. At least that’s the theory… […]
Our mobile devices play a crucial role in everyday life. In fact, we rely on various mobile applications for everything, from monitoring our daily diets to meeting and interacting with people. However, the development of mobile applications is a long and arduous process and without proper mobile application testing, it can be difficult to implement […]
Around the world, JMeter and LoadRunner remain some of the most popular tools for load testing. These are truly excellent tools and most performance engineers use them.
When choosing load testing tools the main question is whether the tool supports all the required protocols? When it comes to HTTP, the selection of tools is enormous, including excellent cloud solutions that make it possible to create a load simultaneously from different points on the planet. For less common protocols the number of suitable tools shrinks considerably. In these cases, the indisputable leader is LoadRunner, an HP product and the de facto standard in the enterprise segment.
