Performance Testing

Performance Testing basics
The aim of this blog is to get you started with performance testing of web applications and services, teaching you everything you need to know about performance testing and JMeter along the way. So, lets get started. 

What is Performance Testing and why it is required?

Majority of web application today are focused on masses i.e. they provide simultaneous access to large number of users to perform different operations. In such cases it is required to measure the performance of the application, to see how well the application behaves in high concurrent load situation.

Most of the mailing, online gaming and social networking websites today have more or less similar functionality but one get ahead of other on the basis of its performance only. So, performance is a vital aspect of an application and to foresee how well the application will behave in large concurrent load is the responsibility of Performance Tester.

According to wiki "Performance testing in general is performed to determine how a system performs in terms of responsiveness and stability under a particular workload. It can also serve to investigate, measure, validate or verify other quality attributes of the system, such as scalability, reliability and resource usage."
