Load and Performance testing: quick way to computer Security
For newly created applications, it is important to test their suitability and readiness for regular mass use. The same applies to an information system that has long been the foundation of your business. The level of data security during any period of its existence needs to be monitored and analyzed. This is the only way to ensure further cybersecurity.
CQR specialists have highlighted the criteria of activity analysis, which are implemented in in-depth security monitoring of your system. All of these are used in Load and Performance Testing using CryEye’s cybersecurity technologies.
Performance testing is an essential part of the software product life cycle that helps to ensure a high quality product. Unfortunately, the process is often seen as an afterthought. The goals of performance testing include evaluating application output, processing speed, data transfer velocity, network bandwidth usage, maximum concurrent users, memory utilization, workload efficiency and command response times.
The performance of your system is tested by attributes, some of which are listed below:
An allowable number of users working.
Performance of all aspects of activity at different load levels
Allowable performance limits at different load levels
The execution time of system operations at the same time or individual each
Load testing is a method used to evaluate a system’s capacity to handle a specific throughput of work. Many web applications fail because they can’t handle the load that is thrown on them. With powerful load testing tools and tactics, you can prevent your application from crashing under heavy usage and ensure that it meets the performance requirements. Actually, Load testing is a special technique of diverse Perfomance testing. Load testing is the process of putting a computer system or application under heavy usage to determine its ability to perform. Load testing can be used to evaluate the performance of a website, server farm, database, or even an entire network.
Load testing focuses more on the impact of traffic on your system:
System performance under the influence of high traffic
Comparison of system performance under different user counts
System performance under normal load
As a result:
Performance testing and load testing are both types of functional testing that measure the performance of a computer system under different conditions. The main difference between these two is their definition and how they are used. While load testing is used to make sure that a computer infrastructure can handle peak loads, performance testing is done for the purpose of making sure that an application runs at the best possible speed. To put it simply – load tests determine the maximum number of users that can be simultaneously handled by a web server or a data store, while performance tests verify the results of applications during actual use.
Yes, it is possible to get a bug even under normal load conditions. CQR specialists have encountered many times a “negative optimization” of the code. Thus, every user request to the server was duplicated in RAM. We continuously monitor the system under different conditions, so that you then do not reload your system every time your cache overflows, or do other unnecessary work.
So testing the system is not just important – it is necessary for its normal continuous functioning.
