Why do Load Testing with Test Studio
Test Studio is a load testing tool that enables you to get a better understanding of how your website would perform if visited by a large number of users at the same time, thus helping you assess if your web apps meet business needs for availability and user satisfaction. We make it easy for you to get started and find the data you need to help inform your decisions, but we also give you the flexibility and power to create elaborate, complex load scenarios to meet your most demanding needs.
Get answers to some of the most critical questions How responsive is my site when
organizations have about how their systems behave under load
under different load conditions? How stable is my site when lots
of users have been hitting it for days? How many users can my site support
before it crashes?
Multiple channels to create load tests
Do you have existing functional tests you’ve already created in Test Studio? You can set up powerful profiles for those tests without having to modify them. You can also quickly tailor “think time” delays to simulate the pauses real users make as they navigate your site. Have you been capturing Fiddler traces of site activity during troubleshooting or monitoring? Use that invaluable data directly by importing it to Test Studio as a test case!
Easy to setup, easy to run
Simplified setup saves you time getting your testing environment ready to roll. Ease of load test script creation keeps your frustration levels lower. Powerful, yet simple configuration options get your tests running quickly. Use any number of tests to create as complex usage scenarios as you need to mimic your site’s actual usage.
Smart diagnosis of issues
Set up your goals and benchmarks then run your test and get live results data during your test runs. Focus on the metrics you are interested in such as average response time, total errors, traffic size, time to first byte, and more. Compare results from different test runs in one easy to understand chart Test Studio will highlight areas where your system may be failing to meet load and performance goals, helping you stay focused on the key performance indicators.
No limitations of one core per agent
Test Studio's load agents are extraordinarily powerful in their ability to multi-thread sessions. They are very proficient at making use of multi-core, hyper threaded CPUs in order to generate a high user load. This greatly reduces hardware/system resource requirements and makes it easy for load testers to set up a grid of agents without building up lots of new virtual machines to host the agents.
