Performance Testing Terminology

Performance testing is the process of determining the speed, responsiveness, and stability of a computer, network, software program or a device under a workload. In order to conduct and analyze a good load test, you need to understand the performance testing terminology including connect time, latency, etc... Let’s elaborate on what they mean. Connect Time Connect time is the time taken to establish a TCP connection between the server and the client. TCP/IP model guarantees delivery of data by its nature by using TCP Handshake. If TCP Handshake is successful, then the client can send further requests. That data send/receive [...]

Let Measure Performance with Gatling

There are many open source tools and paid solutions to perform the load tests efficiently.  As Loadium until now, we supported Apache JMeter and Selenium-based tests for load testing. Gatling, a load test tool, is on the market for a few years and it’s a mature performance test tool to use.  In the near future, we are going to support Gatling tests. Let’s discuss the pros and cons of Gatling together. If you want to add more please feel free to add comments below or shoot us a message through our contact page. First, it is an open source load [...]

What is Application Performance Monitoring?

Application performance management is the real time monitoring and management of performance and user experience of software applications. Speed is everything in today’s connected world. Especially when it comes to the applications and websites accessed by end users, it’s much more crucial. Users are not tolerant to slowness. They tend to abandon the application and move on to a similar app if it’s possible. So it will have a huge negative impact on business productivity, profits and even the brand itself. To be successful, velocity and stability should be in balance. IT disaster reports states that stability varies significantly between [...]

4 Things You Should Know About HTTP Requests

In order to perform a good performance test on the HTTP protocol, there is something that you should know about it. Let’s start! What is an HTTP request? The Hypertext Transfer Protocol is an application-level protocol for distributed, hypermedia information systems. This is the foundation for data communication for the World Wide Web since 1990. It is a generic and stateless protocol which can be used for other purposes as well as using extensions of its request methods, error codes, and headers. What makes HTTP a simple but powerful protocol? Here are some examples HTTP is connectionless: The HTTP client, [...]

Performance Testing with Postman

Postman is an open source API testing tool. It can work with any given endpoint even if it’s Restful or XML based. It has an easy to use interface to make the request to the given endpoints. It offers a rich variety of features. Creating a collection from requests, extracting data from any response and storing in a variable are the least you can do with Postman. Postman supports any HTTP request type like the POST, PUT, GET, etc. Let’s see what the key features of a POSTMAN request are. Postman request consists of 5 different sections Authorization The endpoint [...]
