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).

Common Mistakes In Performance Testing


Performance Test Execution and Monitoring. In this article, we are highlighting a few points on what can be avoided for better performance when we test and monitor a load test.

The Biggest Performance Testing Obstacles


Performance testing is a crucial part of the development process, but it is also one of the most overlooked steps in a development cycle. Not many developers are interested in doing rigorous testing on their codes to see how they perform under heavy load. Even worse, not all decision-makers and stakeholders realize the importance of performance testing. performance software testing performance testing obstacles

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.

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.

Using Selenium, Docker, and Cloud for Performance Testing

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. 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.

Speed Curve

At some point you'll be given permission to "focus on performance" and after many more hours, the website will be fast again. What if there was a way that you could prevent performance from degrading in the first place? Some sort of performance gateway that only allows changes to production code if they meet performance requirements? I think it's time we talked about having performance regressions break the build. Performance as acceptance criteria.
