What is Performance
Performance testing is the assessment of very different sets of functional skills or abilities. Performance testing is extremely common in the computer hardware and software industry.
In the software testing field, we come across terms like performance testing, load testing, stress testing, etc. These terms are often misunderstood and interpreted as the same concepts.
Why Performance Testing
A successful performance testing will project most of the performance issues, which could be related to database, network, software, hardware, etc. The primary goal of performance testing includes establishing the benchmark behavior of the system.
Performance testing continues to be the poor, neglected cousin of functional and operational acceptance testing (OAT), which is well understood and has a high maturity level in most business organizations.
Types of Performance Testing
Load Testing is a type of performance testing conducted to evaluate the behavior of a system at increasing workload.
Performance testing conducted to evaluate the behavior of a system at or beyond the limits of its anticipated workload.
This testing is performed whether the application and environment can handle the amount of traffic that it was designed to handle.
Stress performance testing is conducted to evaluate the behavior of a system at or beyond the limits of its anticipated workload.
This type of testing usually falls under load tests and includes the ability to simulate peak loads as opposed to average ones.
Every software consists of numerous parts or components or modules. Component testing is testing of specific module or program.
