Load, Learn and Lift Testing in Your Delivery Pipeline

There is often no time to load testing or make changes to the code when the load testing is pushed to the end of the development cycle. It results in catastrophic effects where the business delays the release or spends more funds to fix the problem after the software delivery. Also, the traditional and legacy load testing approaches are either outdated or too slow to give instant results in the era of agile software development. Therefore, to provide speedy delivery, accuracy, and confidence in your software, this presentation will explore and fit load testing as a part of continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) pipeline. This strategy focuses on performing continuous load testing, learning from the new data, and leveraging it to lift the model using machine learning. Following are the key takeaways from this session:

  • How traditional or legacy load testing fails the agile methodology
  • Why perform continuous load testing and include in your delivery pipeline
  • The transition from legacy controlled load testing to semi-controlled load testing
  • A new approach to make load testing simple, faster and smarter - Reading the correct metrics to measure performance
  • Challenges faced with modern technique and future work with artificial intelligence (AI)
