Within the scope of this test, it is carried out mainly for web-based applications, and requests are sent from various points of the world so that the application can be run as a whole. In this way, when the applications that attract many users instantly reach such high rates, both the hardware responses and the stability structure of the software are analyzed.
The purpose of load testing is to maintain system reliability and performance, ensure the successful operation of the system software, and ensure that the end-user can take full advantage of the system.
Load Test Stages
- Test scenario determination
- Data preparation for each transaction
- Determination of connection speeds
- Configuration of all servers
- Gathering and analyzing test results
- Determine load test operations
- Estimation of the number of users accessing the system
- Identification of different browsers and operating systems used by the user
- Test case execution and monitoring
- Advice for correction
Stress testing is designed to increase the number of simultaneous requests of a system after a point in which performance drops (even at a point of complete failure) to prepare for the unexpected, determine how far a given system can be pushed, and explore the outer limits of its performance capacity. If a load test peaks in concurrent users, the baseload will continue to increase the load on the system until resources become overloaded. This is deliberately pushing the system into a fail state to see how it handles itself and whether it can perform a proper recovery. Thus, it ensures that the risks at the breaking points are analyzed, and the chances are minimized by fine-tuning. AQM team helps you determine the maximum load your systems can handle by performing load/stress tests with specially created scenarios.
