Virtual world of technology has made the masses to rely on applications for any kind of work from learning to shopping. In addition, the businesses nowadays run their own applications by seeing the demand and these applications should work fine. There is also need for businesses to identify that how well does their app work for their end-users. Thus, the application should undergo testing to ensure the stability, usability, performance and other responsiveness of app.
After you ensure your applications’ functionality is stable, then it’s time for load testing to improve the quality of your applications. When an application is in the market, it means that a lot of users will be using it. Different users use the application in different scenarios and may be at the same time, this will create load on the application and it will degrade the performance.
Load testing is a way to know about the performance of your application when multiple users are using it in different scenarios.
When an application undergoes load testing, it is made to undergo different load variants leveraging different scenarios of using an application. This makes to identify all the performance bottlenecks of the application under different load variants. When performance bottlenecks are identified, then you can mitigate them to improve page load, responsiveness and overall user experience of the application. A well-planned load test with a goal set can enable testers to come across limitations.
To monitor in how much time does the system response for each transaction during a certain period of time, load testing can prove fruitful. This surveillance could reveal the bottleneck to the businesses which could improve their businesses once fixed. The behavior of the application under different variations of load from low to high is understood through this type of testing.
Load testing enables to identify the breaking point of your application, which means the number of concurrent users your application handle. With this insight, you can make your application ready before your anticipated peak business day. Load testing also enables you to understand the response time from the server to load your application.
