System Stability Test | Part 2

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 [...]

System Stability Test | Part 1

Stability Test Stability test is a type of software testing to check the quality and behavior of the software under different environmental parameters. It is defined as the ability of the product to continue to function over time without failure. It is a non-functional testing technique that focuses to stress the software component to the maximum. Stability testing is done to check the efficiency of a developed product beyond normal operational capacity which is known as the breakpoint. It has higher significance in error handling, software reliability, robustness, and scalability of a product under heavy load rather than [...]

How To Test Login Page Using JMeter

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 [...]

JMeter How to Solve NoHttpResponseException

During load testing, it is very normal that you get some errors for your requests. But sometimes these errors don't occur because of server problems. One of the most common exceptions in JMeter is NoHttpResponseException. To solve this issue, you can try the following alternative solutions. Change the Implementation of Your HTTP Requests On JMeter, choose a specific HTTP request sampler. On Advanced tab, you will see a section called “Implementation”. Change this option to “HttpClient4”. Then rerun your load test. Change Your “user.properties” File Adding some values to your user.properties file [...]

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 [...]

Difference Between Agile And Waterfall on Performing Performance Tests At The Optimum Time

Is it better to assess performance during development process or at the end? – Difference between Agile and Waterfall approaches Teams must identify at what point in the development process they will benefit the most from doing performance tests while considering the performance of existing systems or those constructed from the ground up. So, the goal of this post is to answer the question of whether we should start performance testing early on, alongside development (as in the agile approach) or later on (as in the waterfall style). Basically, difference between agile and waterfall approaches on performing performance [...]

How To Reduce Initial Server Response Time For Your Load Test

While running a performance test, one of the most important KPIs is server response time for your requests. Sometimes these response times may not be living up to your expectations. There may be lots of reasons for that. Sometimes it happens because of system side problems, and sometimes because of scripting problems. Since simulating real user behavior is always needed for performance testing, we should solve these things as soon as possible. Solve The Problems For Your System There can be multiple reasons behind high response time. To address and solve the issues, you [...]

Step-by-Step Explanation of Soak Testing and Spike Testing

Let's assume that you are working on a web application or an API. Let's say that you have finished all of the functional testing and even some performance tests. The product release went off without a hitch. However, after a while, your application's performance suffers, and API response times escalate. Perhaps you would wonder about what happened and go wrong. Soak testing and spike testing are two different types of performance testing that might assist you in preventing such problems. Initially, we'll look into stress testing because soak and spike testing are interrelated; later we'll look at the other types of tests in more detail, including when they're [...]

10 Suggestions for Choosing the Number of Concurrent Users for Your Test

Do you know how many virtual users should you use for your website or app performance tests? If your answer is “No”, this is the right blog post for you to read. Even if you know Apache JMeter and Gatling, they can't tell you how many concurrent users should be sending requests to the URL you're testing. This is due to the fact that the number of users to run a test is a business and product decision based on past user scenario patterns, future expectations, marketing initiatives, and product requirements. So, if you're a tester, here are a [...]

Why Test Automation is Necessary?

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 [...]
