What Is Performance Testing?

Performance testing is a fairly general term that can be applied to many aspects of your website or application. However, they all aim to determine the usability, scalability and reliability of a piece of software.

Performance testing will enable you to identify, and resolve, two main types of issues that are highly important for any modern application, whether mobile or web based:

  1. Length of load times (high response time issues)
  2. Failures in loading certain features (increased failure rate under load)

These issues can be be caused by various issues and performance testing will enable you to determine the actual cause in order to resolve them and bring your application up-to-speed with potential uses cases.
