98/365 - I don’t know you, but without my daily @starbucksire coffee I can’t perform the same.
Can you cope with a performance testing session without being properly boosted?
When it comes to Performance testing, there are no technical difficulties, is more of a monotonous kind of duty than anything.
Some time testing our web applications for stress and loading issues should be done in different internet connection speeds for a better report.
Nowadays, we have a couple of service providers, AWS for instance, that turn this step into a more smoother assignment.
For example, making sure that your application can handle and sustain peak load times is crucial, especially now that video and e-commerce are gradually growing for basically any business. Large input data from users and multiple requests are definitely expected even for small businesses.
AWS and other providers are offering auto scaling now, so your capacity will adjust in response to request volume, which is a headache you can avoid. Take an e-commerce website, you don’t want to spend a gigantic budget without the actual traffic need but at the same time, during Christmas time and other specific periods of the year, you must be sure your system will handle that crazy amount of buyers. Auto scaling covers this concern.
Stress testing goes in the same direction. Developers will try to achieve here the application's stretching limit. How an application reacts to stress and how it recovers from crashes is a trustworthy way to predict, adapt and prevent user experience frustrations associated with it. 👨🏽💻✌🏽☕️
