How to create web performance test with VSTS?

In the previous article we have gone through high level overview of the performance testing using VSTS. To start with web performance test using VSTS, we will be going in to details of each and every phase of this particular exercise. First part of this particular activity is to identify the performance test scenarios and second part is to mould that particular scenario in form of web performance test.

As we have seen earlier performance test can be done with

What Is Endurance Testing In Software Testing?

There are many definitions and explanations available for Endurance Testing. It is difficult to determine which one is right. Let’s start with literal meaning of the word “Endurance”

Definition: The capacity of something to last or to withstand wear and tear.

In software terms, Endurance testing is performed to check behavior of system under sustained or prolonged use. It is performed with a significant work load on system. Its key features are

It is a non-functional software testing. It is

Overview Of Performance Testing With VSTS

There are plenty of tools available in market which supports performance testing of web application. Many of them are licensed tools and few of them are open source as well. Few are supporting only web applications few can handle only web API’s. However, VSTS stands tall among them with having support to both of them. Unlike the Load UI and Jmeter it has lots of flexibility because of support of C# as backend scripting language. Of course it has that

Performance Testing vs Load Testing vs Stress Testing

This is the guest post from Anmol Rastogi, he is currently working as QA Manager in the Cognizant Technologies, Pune. He is having total 11 years of experience in the IT industries.

Performance Testing

Performance testing is the testing technique used to determine the performance components of a particular system/ application in a specific situation. It determines how much resources are used and how much product/system is scalable, reliable, responsible, and speedy during test. This testing does not give pass

Best Practices from JMeter – JMeter Tutorials Series Day 11

Procedure to reduce limitations of JMeter in distributed environment, following are the guidelines will assist in creating a real and continuous load:

Decrease resource necessity Find out the Scoping Rules and design consequently Find the JMeter logs Before executing scripts,find out the default browser Connectivity settings Reduce and limit the Number of Threads Don’t use functional mode Only use same sampler in a loop rather than lots of similar samplers, and also use variables (CSV Data Set)

JMeter’s Distributed Testing - JMeter Tutorials Series Day 10

Distributed testing is a testing process, supports multiple systems to implement stress testing. Distributed testing is helpful to test those web sites and web server applications who work with multiple clients simultaneously.

Figure shows the client-server model of Distributes testing,

Where,

Master: A JMeter GUI which controls each slave. Slave: A JMeter-server which gets command from the master and sends the request to server under test. Target: The web server gets request from slaves, under test

Copy all JMeter
