Keynote Test Perspective: Quick points on Load Testing

September 19, 2008

Guys, just jotting the quick points from the presentation on load testing, sitting at conference room(will continue on Monday.)

  • Load testing is end to end performance test under anticipated production load
  • load testing is critical for any website that serves high density of traffic.
  • load testing validates the justification of website infrastructure changes which organization makes time to time

best practices

  • do not be assured of the previous site performance
  • do not hesitate to test from multiple locations
  • do not assume the user type, there are both type of users- patience packed and patience un-packed
