Load Test

A load test measures the performance of an application under different levels of user activity, including peak load (a measurement of user activity, and live user quantity), over a pre-defined amount of time.

The key benefits of performing regular load tests include:

  • Determining if an application is capable of meeting performance targets, and/or user activity.
  • Measuring if an application will fail outright, or continue to function as desired, under a high peak load.
