Load testing is not only a question of load times and application performance. Our customs have one global question in mind:
Are my users satisfied with their experience?
To answer this question, we look at data from a multitude of data sources to more closely emulate real user experience during test case development.
Once engagement is requested, a kick off meeting is scheduled to introduce the team members and assign Phase I activities.
If the client is using Business Intelligence software or can map the user journey, we collect this information to help measure how your system performs analogous to a real-world scenario.
Traffic is likely to arrive from a multitude of different devices, browsers, and operating systems. We collect this information to assess traffic patterns.
It is key to understand where users are coming from as the source of Internet traffic geo-location will significantly impact customer experience.
We need to understand your performance goals, architecture and schedule. To gain this insight we will conduct a scoping meeting to gather all requirements.
The goal of Phase II is to analyse the collected data and incorporating into a testing plan.
Record Desired Outcomes
Develop Test Case Scenarios
Write Statement of Work (SOW)
Review, Optimize, & Authorize SOW
Once the SOW has been developed and approved a Proof of Concept is run to ensure that parameters are valid, and the test is analogous to real world environments.
Record and Upload Scripts
Run Benchmark Test
Validate Test Cases
Phase IV is an iterative process to improve performance of the website under load. The steps will be repeated until site is performing as needed under load.
Run Load Test
Analyze Data and Report
Make Changes to Infrastructure & Code
Repeat Phase IV until Desired Outcome
