Planning and Implementing a Performance Test Prior Year Content

In today’s fast paced, ever changing world of software and technology, software performance testing is becoming essential to successful product implementation. To be successful we must understand several fundamental factors about performance testing. Dale Perry examines what it takes to plan and implement a software performance test across multiple environments. Dale identifies key issues, how they determine our level of success at implementing the necessary testing, and potential pitfalls. He addresses the tester’s role in performance testing, the performance testing process (planning, preparation, execution and reporting) focusing on planning and implementation, and integrating performance testing into the development process. Within the process, Dale discusses performance goals and objectives, the environment and architecture issues, operational profiles, (load definitions) and their importance to performance testing, understanding the various types of performance tests, defining appropriate measurements.
