Performance testing is necessary for the smooth functioning of any application. Know the different types of performance tests and how performance testing is done. Check out the list of top Performance testing tools that are trending and how you can get a performance testing service for your application
Performance Testing service is mandatory for any application to run smoothly. A developer when develop an application is always far from perfection. The application should undergo performance testing tools to identify any loopholes in the application. Performance Testing tools are type of testing tools that analyze how the application will perform under load.
Why any application needs Performance Testing?
An application will always be far from ideal and will work a bit differently in a practical environment. To have a smooth production, it is important to check the smooth functioning of the app through performance testing services.
Performance Testing identifies the loopholes and bottleneck in the system. Moreover, Performance Testing KPI is indicative that helps any organization to analyze its current performance.
Do You Know?
Performance Testing can identify the location and the nature of the problem by indicating the area where the application will lag or fail.
Types of performance testing
There are different types of performance testing done to understand the functionality of an application. An application needs to undergo all the types of performance testing to ensure the stability of the application
You do not want the application to crash at the highest workload. A user needs to know about the maximum tolerance that the application can handle to avoid crashing.
QuickScale offers all the performance testing services.
Load Testing is done to identify the performance of an application under the normal condition. It measures the application response time and identifies any bottleneck or any problem in the functionality of the application.
Stress Testing is done to identify the threshold of the load point at which the application will crash.
The workload is never the same, so will be the workload on the application. Hence it is important to measure the performance of the application when the workload rapidly changes.
Endurance Testing is to check how efficiently the application will be able to endure the expected workload. In endurance testing, the application is subjected to the expected workload for a period of time. The parameters are monitored to check how well the application can function
Scalability Testing is donate to identify how efficiently the software can perform if there is a gradual increase in the workload.
Volume Testing is used to check the data processing capability and its efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions FAQ
How does Performance Testing prevent IT issues and outages?
Performance Testing helps in analyzing the existing loopholes and bottleneck in the system. The timely performance test also helps in maintaining the speed, stability of the system.
When is the best time to start performance Testing?
The best time to start performance testing is to wait until the development of the application ends. The performance test is done using a performance testing service and if the criteria are met, the application can then go for production.
What are the open-source performance tools available?
Some of the open-source performance tools available are Jmeter, Gatling, Locust, Tsung, Taurus etc
What is End to End Performance testing?
End to end Performance Testing is a way to check whether the application works as expected from the start till the end.
