Load Testing

Load testing is the process of putting demand on a system and measuring its response.

Q.1 What is load testing and stress testing?

Load testing refers to testing an application for a specified load whereas stress testing refers to testing the system, till it breaks to ascertain the maximum stress it can bear. Stress testing can be thought as more ruthless or deep load testing.

Q.2 How do you perform a load test?

The steps to perform a load test are similar for any other type of software testing.

To perform a load test, is done by

- Develop a test environment to perform a load test

- Enlist load test scenarios like amount of load / transactions to give to system for load test

- configure and develop test casers

- Execute test cases and store results

- Analyze results for new test cases and any changes needed in test environment / test cases

Q.3 What is difference between load and performance testing?

The difference between load and performance testing is as performance testing includes load testing.

Performance testing covers not only load testing but also other aspects of performance being tested under performance testing like turnaround time, ease of learning,  user experience, etc

Q.4 What is sanity and smoke testing?

Sanity and smoke testing are software testing techniques to test various aspects of software. Sanity Testing checks after minor errors being resolved in software and no more errors are present due to the change. Smoke testing checks system's stability by checking that crucial functions of system, is working

Q.5 What is Agile methodology in testing?

Agile methodology in testing refers to using the Agile methodology in software testing. Agile methodology stresses on continuous iteration to achieve the specific goal. Hence, Agile methodology in testing refers to applying continuous iteration in software testing along with development.

Q.6 Why is load testing important?

Load testing is important, as it shows any load related weaknesses in the software under test. The results of load testing if done effectively, outlines system behavior under load to address any resources needed for such scenarios

Q.7 What is the example of load testing?

The example of load testing is testing of websites for anticipated web traffic. JMeter is used extensively for same.

Q.8 Can load testing be done manually?

Yes, load testing can be done manually but considering the volume of instructions to be gives in a test case, manually, makes it suitable candidate for automation.

 

Multiple requests / transactions is difficult to be done manually hence, automation is the only way out.

Q.9 Why load testing is required?

Load testing is required, as it shows any load related weaknesses in the software under test. The results of load testing if done effectively, outlines system behaviour under load to address any resources needed for such scenarios
