What Does Stress Testing Your Website Reveal?

Any software business that expects a significant volume of visitors due to a planned or unforeseen situation should be tested. Non-functional testing is used to assess the software's speed, stability, and scalability and evaluate how the website/application performs when under high load. A stress test is executed to establish the website's breaking point by simulating many visitors, which is the "load," and progressively raising it. When a website reaches a breaking point, it either crashes or suffers a considerable performance loss. In contrast to load testing, which tests the website for a particular load, stress testing raises the load to determine how the website behaves under [...]

Differences between Performance Testing, Load Testing and Stress Testing

What is Performance Testing, Load Testing, and Stress Testing? In order to make sure that software works smoothly, quality assurance engineers should run several types of performance tests depending on the context of the test case. Deciding on which type of performance test to conduct depends on the suitability of the test type with the software project. To make the right decision in software testing process, it’s important to know the differences between each load testing and other types of tests. Performance Testing Performance testing is the process of evaluating the quality, responsiveness, stability, and scalability of your software. [...]
