Do you hate waiting? Have you ever tried to buy online tickets for that concert, or that must-have gift online on Black Friday? Ever try to register for something on the first or last day available, or to file your taxes online on the last night? If your online payment to charity stalled or bombed out, would you try again? I bet your customers hate that feeling even more than you do.
Performance issues can slow down responses, or cause deny service. Somewhere in between those two, things may process incorrectly. When end users become frustrated, they abandon online sites and mobile apps and publicize their dissatisfaction. More importantly, your online revenue drops due to the lost business. And it is all preventable, whether the cause is a memory leak, a lengthy SQL query, a simple resource problem, or a mobile QoS problem that has more to do with latency, jitter or packet loss. Consistently simulating load conditions is best achieved through automation, which is well-designed for handling test variables such as number of users, data volume and traffic loads, possibly while weaving in different telephony call flows.
QualiTest can ensure that your performance scales as expected, keeping your users happy. Capacity benchmarking ensures that your system survives anticipated extreme situations and that high volume traffic must not only maintain a reasonable speed, but must also maintain functionality during heavy load (not just throw a return ACK). Proper testing may involve setting up a special environment, or using a special network or series of networks. QualiTest’s complete solution, from detection and analysis to corrective action, is based on your infrastructure and our comprehensive performance testing expertise. Determining the right tests requires analyzing your product environment in terms of the number of users, data volume and traffic loads, as well as real life problems that may be encountered. Our wide variety of use cases include:
- Client-server throughput
- Functional problems
- Load balancing
- Maximum clients
- Memory and CPU usage
- Memory leaks and database lockups
- Performance on several data volumes
- Response time under different load levels
- Screen refresh rate
- Stress testing
- Voice quality
We leverage our performance testing through automation and with tools from our partners including TestPlant, SmartBear, Reflective Solutions, Neotys, Keynote Mobile Testing, Gybe Systems and ExperiTest. Don’t leave your website’s behavior during peak loads to chance.
