Performance Testing Services
Efficient load and Performance Testing is business-critical. Measuring, validating and verifying the operational capabilities of an application eventually leads to an efficient performance of the system. Performance Testing consists of series of tests that allow the tester to benchmark system response time, CPU usage, Memory usage, speed of APIs and other performance parameters under variety of generated/synthetic load conditions.
Load time and app performance are crucial elements of your product’s success. We expertly test application performance at high loads, measure, validate and verify operational capabilities to ensure you can offer a flawless customer experience.
Software performance testing is an important part of software development, because it makes it possible to assess the speed of operations, ascertain the permissible number of simultaneously active users or simultaneous transactions, and determine how the volume of data affects the performance of an IT solution.

PERFORMANCE TESTING - CUSTOMER STORIES
Attaining customer centricity has never been this easy before! In the digital age, much of what a company offers, its ability to provide awe inspiring customer experience and its resilience to external factors is determined by its ability to embrace technology.
INSIGHTS ON PERFORMANCE TESTING
It's a common misconception that performance testing with Docker is a lengthy and tiring process.
The pace of change has never been this fast for Performance Engineering.
Enterprises worldwide are striving to have applications that are both robust and responsive.
What is Performance Testing?
Performance Testing is a software testing process used for testing the speed, response time, stability, reliability, scalability and resource usage of a software application under particular workload. The main purpose of performance testing is to identify and eliminate the performance bottlenecks in the software application. It is a subset of performance engineering and also known as “Perf Testing”.
The focus of Performance Testing is checking a software program's
- Speed - Determines whether the application responds quickly
- Scalability - Determines maximum user load the software application can handle.
- Stability - Determines if the application is stable under varying loads
Why do Performance Testing?
Features and Functionality supported by a software system is not the only concern. A software application's performance like its response time, reliability, resource usage and scalability do matter. The goal of Performance Testing is not to find bugs but to eliminate performance bottlenecks.
Performance Testing is done to provide stakeholders with information about their application regarding speed, stability, and scalability. More importantly, Performance Testing uncovers what needs to be improved before the product goes to market. Without Performance Testing, software is likely to suffer from issues such as: running slow while several users use it simultaneously, inconsistencies across different operating systems and poor usability.
Performance testing will determine whether their software meets speed, scalability and stability requirements under expected workloads. Applications sent to market with poor performance metrics due to nonexistent or poor performance testing are likely to gain a bad reputation and fail to meet expected sales goals.
Also, mission-critical applications like space launch programs or life-saving medical equipment should be performance tested to ensure that they run for a long period without deviations.
According to Dunn & Bradstreet, 59% of Fortune 500 companies experience an estimated 1.6 hours of downtime every week. Considering the average Fortune 500 company with a minimum of 10,000 employees is paying $56 per hour, the labor part of downtime costs for such an organization would be $896,000 weekly, translating into more than $46 million per year.
Only a 5-minute downtime of Google.com (19-Aug-13) is estimated to cost the search giant as much as $545,000. It's estimated that companies lost sales worth $1100 per second due to a recent Amazon Web Service Outage. Hence, performance testing is important.
What are different types of Performance Testing?
- Load testing - checks the application's ability to perform under anticipated user loads. The objective is to identify performance bottlenecks before the software application goes live.
- Stress testing - involves testing an application under extreme workloads to see how it handles high traffic or data processing. The objective is to identify the breaking point of an application.
- Endurance testing - is done to make sure the software can handle the expected load over a long period of time.
- Spike testing - tests the software's reaction to sudden large spikes in the load generated by users.
- Volume testing - Under Volume Testing large no. of. Data is populated in a database and the overall software system's behavior is monitored. The objective is to check software application's performance under varying database volumes.
- Scalability testing - The objective of scalability testing is to determine the software application's effectiveness in "scaling up" to support an increase in user load. It helps plan capacity addition to your software system.
