Performance Test Reporting step provides an overall test result, test analysis, and recommendations to the development team from the application’s performance perspective. Sometimes, technical teams may underestimate the value of reporting, mostly because they are busy, and writing a good report sometimes just takes more time than expected. WHAT IS PERFORMANCE TEST REPORTING? Performance Test Report makes performance testing visible and helps to find bottlenecks and make the GO / NO-GO decision for the whole application or a specific business flow. There are many ongoing forum discussions about what the ideal load testing report needs to contain. While there may not be much agreement over the perfect performance report, you can always [...]

Real-time reporting is a very crucial feature for all type of software tests. Bug fixing activities and improvements are planned based on the findings in detailed reports. This is also valid for any type of performance tests. Critical optimizations and changes are applied at different levels such as code, infrastructure or technological based on the reports generated. JMeter supported basic raw formatted data in CSV and XML format up to version 3.0. You had to use a third-party tool to create fancy reports prior to version 3.0. JMeter version 3.0 and above (currently 3.3 is the latest) offer enriched reporting [...]
One of the most sophisticated JMeter built-in components is BeanShell. It understands Java syntax and adds scripting capabilities such as loose types, commands, and method closures. If your test case is unusual, and implementing it using integrated JMeter components is difficult or impossible, BeanShell might be a great way to fulfill your goals. BeanShell entities in JMeter have access to both internal JMeter APIs and any external classes loaded into the JMeter classpath (be sure to drop required jars into your JMeter installation's /lib/ext folder and insert the relevant "import" lines at the start of your BeanShell scripts). The following [...]
When it comes to performance testing, there are not so many different tools that has been mature enough to use in software performance testing projects. In this article we decided to talk about two of the oldest performance testing tools on the market. Those two tools are Apache JMeter and LoadRunner. Let's give some information about LoadRunner for those who have never heard of it. Apache JMeter and LoadRunner What is Apache JMeter? Apache JMeter is an open-source Apache project that helps IT teams to do load testing on their applications. It has its own script recorder, test result analyzer plug-ins and many cool features. What is LoadRunner? LoadRunner is a software performance testing tool developed [...]

Load test and performance test allow you to see the status of your services and the bottlenecks of these services, if any. In addition, Application Performance Management Tools (APM) provide you with database operations in your services, response times of your APIs, etc. along with many parameters where you are having trouble in details. At Loadium, we offer the support of New Relic and AppDynamics APM tools. WHAT IS THE APPLICATION PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT? APM enables business-critical applications to monitor performance metrics, receive timely alerts in case of performance issues, and generate reports for periodic performance analysis. In this way, it facilitates the [...]
There are many different testing techniques you can apply to your application under test (AUT). Some tests are categorized under functional tests whereas some of them are classified as non-functional tests. Load Testing is one of the most important non-functional testing disciplines. There are many names defining that activity, some call it “Load Testing”, some call it “Stress Testing”. While they all have different approaches while executing the tests, the general purpose is mostly the same. They aim to define how the software application behaves under specific load simultaneously or a continuous amount of time. By doing so we find the bottlenecks of [...]
Any company that is developing a software product should perform testing. Testing is an important part of product development, particularly when it comes to ensuring quality. Many small and mid-sized businesses neglect research, despite the fact that it is important for producing a reliable product. It's important to have tests in place, but it's also important to know how to run them. At all times, manual testing should be minimized. Furthermore, test automation enhances overall software development performance and allows for the creation of more robust tools. Manual testing is favored by some firms, but it is not the best [...]
WHAT IS A PERCENTILE? Percentile (common measurement in statistics) splits the given sample group into 100 equal-sized intervals and this enables the data to be analyzed in terms of percentages. We can explain the usage of percentile with an example: The response time for an HTTP request below which 90% of the response time values lie, is called the 90-percentile response time. In the following graph, 90% of the requests is processed in 3.0 seconds or less: WHY DO WE USE PERCENTILES? If we speak statistically, there are a lot of methods to define just how good of an overall [...]
