Qualitest Performs Load Test for Leading E-learning ProviderLoad & Performance Media & Entertainment
Qualitest was approached by a large scale online e-learning system to assist in achieving the maintenance of its mission-critical application at peak performance and scalability levels. The application capacity was also an unknown risk because the system did not contain any solid, well-framed methodology for predicting system behavior and performance under real-time stress.
Web Performance TestingLoad & Performance
Today, when a telephone system is installed in a new neighborhood, it will always work perfectly. The phone will ring, the line will connect immediately, and people can communicate with each other even if all the neighbors are speaking at the same time. This is because over time and due to algorithms which have been developed, it is known how much hardware is needed to support a specific area. Web technology is very different. There can be a different number of servers, different amounts of resources per server, different and new technologies, many different parameters can be configured to improve performance and naturally code can always be improved. As the number of mission critical application websites increases, there is an increasing need to test these applications in order to ensure and guarantee that the business and marketing needs are met. Because the web does not have the same loyalty as traditional trading, poor performance will let users easily move over to the competition.
An Introduction to Availability TestingLoad & Performance
As a general idea, availability is a measure of how often the application is available for use. More specifically, availability is a percentage calculation based on how often the application is actually available to handle service requests when compared to the total, planned, available runtime. The formal calculation of availability includes repair time because an application that is being repaired is not available for use.

Experience and Performance TestingLoad & Performance
Performance testing is widely misunderstood, particularly by executives and managers; these misunderstandings can cause a variety of difficulties, including project failure. Experienced performance testers are a necessity to any testing venture: they will speak your language and guide you through the process of meeting your goals, even if you’re as yet unable to articulate what those goals are. They not only know how to relate to executives in terms of business risks, short- and long-term costs, and implications of schedule adjustment, but they also know how to explain their testing. It is the job of the performance tester to define the conditions under which the goal applies; i.e. to determine the goal's context. Therefore, this goal must address such things as client connection speed, number of people accessing the site, and the types of activities those people are performing.
