Load Testing helps in validating the application design and server infrastructure for expected concurrent user load wherein the system’s response is tested under varying load conditions simulating concurrent virtual users accessing the application under test.
It is a non functional form of application testing in which we measure response times, throughput and examine the resources provisioned for the application. Load testing is executed to simulate the behaviour of the application under both normal and at peak conditions thereby identifying any bottlenecks in the system which might degrade the performance in production.
The key to executing Load testing, besides creating test scripts and scenarios to simulate real world traffic, is the availability of load generator servers which could pump up the required number of concurrent connections at given point of time. The number of concurrent connections created by the load generator machines is dependent on its hardware configuration.
NIC’s Load Testing service provides a cluster of load generator servers that can create high concurrency traffic on the application. User can upload Test Scripts and run the load test schedule.
Detailed Test Report is downloadable after the load test execution which will provide insights on application behaviours under simulated production load.
