The Future of Performance Testing

Alex Podelko

Following up my post Are Times still Good for Load Testing? , First, I’d like to elaborate on “It may be less need for simple load testing due to increased scale and sophistication of systems” I meant that the traditional way – testing the system before deploying in production using production-type workload – is not the only way anymore. That dictates changes needed in performance testing (and, eventually, performance testing tools).

Performance Testing with Open Source Tools – Myths and Reality

Alex Podelko

Some time ago Federico Toledo published Performance Testing with Open Source Tools- Busting The Myths. The open source load testing tools definitely advanced a lot in both maturity and functionality – but there are many areas where they are behind best commercial tools (and if it matters for a specific user is another subject – for some it may not). How did you get into performance engineering? I remember really liking the technical side of these tests.

In-house Tool for Performance Testing


In the software development cycle, testing is one of the important criteria. There are many tools available in this space for testing such as Junit, Jmeter, manual, automation, and many performance testing tools. The objective is to create a tool in the most customized way which is easily configurable and expandable to test current and future applications.

Heap Memory In Java Applications Performance Testing


Does every performance engineer need to know about how memory in Java works? To completely fine-tune the java performance bottlenecks for high performance my answer is YES. Java memory management is a significant challenge for every performance engineer and Java developer, and a skill that needs to be acquired to have Java applications properly tuned.

Reinventing Performance Testing: Agile

Alex Podelko

I am looking forward to share my thoughts on ‘Reinventing Performance Testing’ at the imPACt performance and capacity conference by CMG held on November 7-10, 2016 in La Jolla, CA. Agile development eliminates the main problem of tradition development: you need to have a working system before you may test it, so performance testing happened at the last moment. Practical agile development is struggling with performance in general.

Top 10 Reasons Why We Should Invest in Performance Testing


Enterprises are effectively in need of applications that are quality-assured and high-performing because these two factors help in improving the user experience and demand among customers. The world is moving fast with many modern technologies, and this has eventually increased the need for having powerful and high-performing applications. Thus, to avoid such bottlenecks, performance testing is a major need. performance performance testing mobile testing investing

Performance Testing vs Stress Testing vs Load Testing


Software Testing comprises of different testing practices such as unit testing, integration testing, UAT testing, accessibility testing, etc. Every testing practice is having its significant importance and role in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). Among the different types of testing, there a few tests that help in improving the application performance such as performance testing, stress testing, and load testing.

The Three Types of Performance Testing

CSS Wizardry

A lot of companies—even if they are aware that performance is key to their business—are often unsure of how, when, or where performance testing sits within their development lifecycle. To make things worse, they’re also usually unsure whose responsibility performance measuring and monitoring is. The short answers are, of course ‘all the time’ and ‘everyone’, but this mutual disownership is a common reason why performance often gets overlooked.

Reinventing Performance Testing: Continuous Integration

Alex Podelko

I am looking forward to share my thoughts on ‘Reinventing Performance Testing’ at the imPACt performance and capacity conference by CMG held on November 7-10, 2016 in La Jolla, CA. In more and more cases, performance testing should not be just an independent step of the software development life-cycle when you get the system shortly before release. The situation started to change recently as agile support became the main theme in load testing tools.

I am looking forward to share my thoughts on ‘Reinventing Performance Testing’ at the imPACt performance and capacity conference by CMG held on November 7-10, 2016 in La Jolla, CA. Cloud seriously impacts system architectures that has a lot of performance-related consequences. Mitigating performance risks moves to SaaS vendors. From one side, it makes it easier to monitor and update / rollback systems that lowers performance-related risks.

Quite often the whole area of load testing is reduced to pre-production testing using protocol-level recording/playback. Sometimes it even lead to conclusions like “performance testing hitting the wall” just because load generation may be a challenge.
