Performance testing gives you the confidence your website or app can cope with expected loads and unexpected spikes of traffic throughout the year
WHAT IS PERFORMANCE TESTING?
Performance testing, or software performance testing, is an umbrella term for a number of different tests that can be conducted to evaluate an app or website’s load times and responsiveness under different conditions.
Load testing, stress testing, spike and soak testing, all check for different capabilities and your website or app’s ability to rise to different business challenges.
WHY DO YOU NEED PERFORMANCE TESTING?
It’s no good creating ever more exciting website features and user experiences if you can’t deliver those experiences speedily and seamlessly.
The standard usability and functionality tests that you typically perform before launching or releasing software may not predict how your app or website will respond to sudden traffic spikes or even under normal conditions once you move to production.
Only performance testing can give you the confidence that your site is equal to the most extreme challenges of the e-commerce calendar: all the expected, additional traffic around Christmas and retail red-letter days, or the sudden unexpected leap in visitors you might see following flash sales, unplanned PR boosts or media mentions.
