Performance testing also known as a test bed, the testing environment is where the software, hardware, and networking are provided to perform performance tests. To use the test environment for performance testing, developers can use the following seven steps:
1. Identify the testing environment
Identify hardware, software, network configurations and tools available allows test teams to design and testing the initial performance testing challenge. Performance testing environment options include:
- Subset of production system with fewer servers of lower specification
- Subset of production system with fewer servers of the same specification
- Actual production system
- Replica of productions system
2. Identify performance metrics
In addition to identifying metrics such as reaction time, deflection and constraints, identify what the performance testing success criteria.
3. Plan and design performance testing
Identify performance testing scenarios that take into account consumer variability, test data, and target metrics. This will produce one or two models.
4. Configure the testing environment
Prepare the test environment element and the instruments needed to monitor the source.
5. Implement your testing design
Develop the tests.
6. Execute testing
In addition to performing performance tests, monitoring and capturing the resulting data.
7. Analyze, report and retesting
Analyze data and share findings. Run the performance test again using the same parameters and different parameters.
