Key factors considered by performance testing services:
1. Proper attention to Mobile –
It is imperative that companies start thinking about developing mobile friendly websites and apps since users tend to use mobile for browsing purpose. To ensure proper functioning and great performance of mobile friendly websites, performance testing services use load generation software tools to simulate peak loads.
2. Testing all transactions –
To retain the loyalty of customers, apps must meet any surge in traffic. Testing performance of each and every user patch is a must. HP mobile and desktop site’s performance went down by 30% for the features ‘add to cart’ and ‘search product’ feature during Cyber Monday Sale.
3. Consider user behaviour patterns –
To design the performance testing scripts, it is important to consider user behaviour pattern. These behaviour patterns include what activities they spend time on, what do they expect from the app, what are the technology constraints, etc.
4. Always analyse –
Performance testing services spend time on analysis after running performance tests. Analysis include data from all the layers, server logs, monitors, resource utilization data, time required etc.
