Often included as an afterthought, performance testing is usually done at the end of a project or just-in-time before a major product release, or when something goes wrong in production. Fortunately, companies are starting to pay closer attention to performance testing earlier in the software development testing lifecycle. Some companies are also adding performance testing into continuous integration. There is also a range of new performance testing tools available on the market, which makes performance testing so much faster – and therefore more effective.

Apart from ensuring that your website or app does not keep the customer waiting, proactive software performance testing is essential during mass events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. By analysing KPIs from previous critical mass events, steps can be taken to ensure critical systems are ready for the massive spike in traffic volume. Some of the critical performance factors we test for include:
At Inspired Testing, we want to make performance testing as accessible and affordable as possible. We structure and allocate our skills and resources so that time-consuming scripting is billed to less expensive resources, with more experienced consultants overseeing the process.
Performance testing is a type of software testing which ensures a system performs well under pressure. The goal is not to find defects but to eliminate performance bottlenecks, measuring the quality attributes (ie. speed, scalability and stability) of your system or application.
An integral part of Agile processes is to develop higher quality software in less time while reducing development costs (ROI). The goal of performance testing is to test performance early and often in the SDLC and to test performance and functionality in the same sprint.
Performance testing provides crucial information about an application or system and points out what needs to be improved before a product goes to market. Software might suffer if issues around speed, scalability and stability requirements aren't identified. Our performance testing services and QA expertise will give you peace of mind to achieve maximum results.
Performance testing types include: load testing, endurance testing, stress testing, volume testing, spike testing and scalability testing.
Performance metrics commonly include: throughput, memory, response time, bandwidth and CPU interrupts per second.
Here are just some of the tools used for performance testing; NeoLoad, LoadRunner, LoadNinja, Apache JMeter, LoadUI Pro, LoadView, Silk Performer, WebLoad, AppLoader and Smartmeter.io
