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 [...]

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. In this post, you will learn how to use enhanced real-time reporting with JMeter. 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 [...]
Interpreting Test Results on Loadium Previously, we learnt how to install JMeter, how to create a scenario, and how to execute our tests on Loadium. In this part, we will briefly explain how to understand Loadium reporting screens and parameters. Let’s start to interpretation of test results with summary report page. On the summary report page, in addition to the values we saw on the previous page, we can see the values max and min response times, number of errors received, latency and connect time. Connect Time → Time taken to establish TCP connection between the server [...]
Advantages of System Stability Test And How To Do It How to Do System Stability Test To determine the scope and objective of the testing, we must ensure that the application server does not crash during the load test executions. Determine the business issues, verify the system performance, and load as per the end-user perspective. Assign the different responsibilities and roles like; creating test plan, test case design, test case review, test execution, etc. Ensure the test deliverables within the specified time Ensure proper load testing tools and experience team is present for the same. Measure the [...]
If you are starting your career as a Performance Test Engineer, you will be dealing with lots of login flows during your working hours. Since it is really important for the sake of your load test, the login page should be tested thoroughly. Here are some tips for you to create and execute a proper test to test login page using JMeter. 1. Practice Login Flow Manually Before recording the requests for login flow, you should perform a couple of manual tests for login components. Make sure that the login button, user credential sections and other basic [...]
As a Performance Test Engineer, you will be dealing with lots of requests and their response codes during your performance tests. These HTTP response status codes could be really useful since they give you an insight about the status of your test runs. Simply, they give you an idea about whether a specific HTTP request has been successfully completed. Even though there are lots of them, we can group them into five classes: Informational responses (100–199) Successful responses (200–299) Redirection messages (300–399) Client error responses (400–499) Server error responses (500–599) 1. Informational Responses [...]
There are lots of reasons why JMeter is one of the most popular performance testing tools in the market. And one of the biggest reasons is its reporting ability. Even though JMeter provides proper test results for your performance testing sessions, there are some problems as well. When you run your test in NON-GUI mode, you will need to wait until the test is complete to see the results. During long running sessions, seeing results immediately could be really crucial. Also, by applying some integrations -that will be shown below- you will have some sort of APM tool on [...]
Growing world of load testing increased both the search of new tools by users and development of new features by developers. The most known and used open-source tools in the sector are undoubtedly JMeter, and Gatling. In this blog post, we will try to explain the Gatling advantages briefly, and why to use it on your load tests. Gatling offers a wealth of features to help you develop a high-performance automation test suite by utilizing the Gatling DSL, as well as growing community support to help you with your questions. It's worth noting that, unlike other tools like JMeter, [...]
There are many ways for IT experts to perform a load/benchmark test on their system. With the help of a testing tool, this process could be really easy to perform and manage. If you are looking for different performance or benchmark testing tools, you have probably come across Apache Benchmark (A/B) and Apache JMeter before. And in this article, we will be focusing on the similarities and differences between JMeter vs Apache Benchmark. As we just said, both JMeter and Apache Benchmark were developed by Apache Software Foundation. They both can be used to run performance based tests [...]
Let's keep going where we stayed about Jmeter and Locust . If you didn't read Part1 you can reach here. 6. Script Recording Script recording is a quick and easy method to construct a simple test template, which you can then tidy up and modify to make it easier to maintain. If you need a quick solution and need to execute a specific load depending on repeated actions, script recording comes in handy. You don't want to waste time writing a script in such a circumstance, especially if you won't need it again. If you're planning to [...]
