Evaluate the services’s operability, subjecting it to different load configurations to detect bottlenecks and identify areas for improvement.
Are there memoryleaks?
Can the system recoverfrom them?
Performance testing detects problems in the environment, system bottlenecks, etc., before going to production..
A performance problem can make your service completely useless. .
In addition, the economic impact can be very serious. Lack of availability or negative user perception can have irreversible consequences.
How can we solve it, drastically reducing times while increasing efficiency?
Performance tests are a preview of the final behavior of the system in production. Identifying problems in a controlled environment allows for safer, surprise-free go-live.
Stay ahead of the unexpected by running tests that simulate real-world conditions. At Redsauce we monitor the server behavior during the test. This way we obtain data that allows us to know:
Performance tests require a thorough preparation of the strategy, the execution environments, the preconditions, the virtual users, monitoring... and a good interpretation of the result.
We document the requirements that the system must meet to achieve optimalperformance, defining the scope of the tests, target systems, number of concurrent users, response times, etc.
We identify the elements of the system and define the characteristics that the test environment must have, making sure that it has a detailed resource monitoring.
We design, program and execute performance test scripts. We monitor the system at all times and collect the results, using the most appropriate tools for each environment.
Finally, we generate and analyze the reports with the test results in order to have data to take improvement actions. These tests and the associated reports are coupled to your continuous integration cycle in order to have, in the right pipeline, the feedback that allows us to be confident in the performance of the release.
We load the system with the number of users expected during a normal use of the system.
We evaluate if other systems are capable to process the loads generated by our service or application.
By varying the load quickly, we determine, among other things, the system's adaptability, resource management, etc.
We increase the load gradually until collapse, to identify which system fails first and focus our attention on it.
The tool that works best for one project does not necessarily have to be the most suitable for another. No two projects are the same.
A 100% tailor-made collaboration. Our teams use the testing strategy that best suits your team's development process.
We select the most suitable methodologies, frameworks, languages or tools for each project, without imposing any.
In Redsauce it is of paramount importance to have clear and useful reports of execution results. That is why we configure the tests and the continuous integration server to generate them and provide you with real value.
Objective Indicators = Measurable Results = Real Results
“We've been working with Redsauce for several years and they have always offered us very competent tools which have allowed us to increase the quality of our products and processes as we improved automation tests in several different languages.”
