Load and Performance Testing is a neglected cousin of security testing. Both disciplines deal with technical requirements, are to a big extend not manual testable and require a detailed technical background. Therefore, organizations often gradually neglect both. However, I will give you now an overview how the former can be prepared and executed.
Have you ever experienced the frustration of slow-loading applications? Even worse, when one of your business applications is loading slowly, it seems as if you suddenly need to use it […]
We often find ourselves busy with too many things at the same time. Living in this kind of multitasking mode not only affects our health, but also our daily work. […]
Complex problems often have simple solutions. But when we look at our performance-testing space, many of us dream too much instead of taking action. This blog post introduces you to […]
A few weeks ago I saw the following mind-breaking text on one of our popular social media platforms: The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low […]
Have you ever thought about the entire life cycle of our applications? We develop them within a few months but we use them often decades. Do we pay enough attention to how easy we can monitor and maintain a new app?
How tool based workload modeling improves the accuracy of your performance test results
There’s more to performance engineering than just load injection and response-time validation. Simulating production volumes on our changed applications—and we have plenty of tools for doing this— makes a good […]
Performance is not just a part of development—it’s also a component of design. That’s because the user experience and the usability of features both depend so much on response times. […]
With the rise of mobile devices user experience has become more critical than ever before. We have the internet in our pocket, browse through our favorite sites multiple times a […]
