Whenever one is starting any sort of QA endeavor, a plan needs to be put in place. This is important for testing the performance of an application as well. Being fully prepared and having a well-defined test plan put in place can help prevent delays. QASource’s expert engineers have pulled together their expertise and created a checklist of metrics and tasks to complete when preparing for performance testing.
Like the name implies, performance testing provides a glimpse at how your system, network, or application performs under a certain workload or on a specific device. Quality performance testing helps ensure that your product is ready for real-world use by your customers, and that they will have a positive experience with it. The numbers your performance testing generates also serve as a baseline for improvement with each release.
We are proud to introduce QASource Perfcast! This new QALounge feature provides a brief overview of the latest performance testing tools to ensure that your application runs without hiccups. In addition to detailing new tools and feature updates for existing ones, Perfcast will offer tips for how to improve performance of your application.
