Any Test Studio functional test can also be used as a performance test. To execute a performance test in Test Studio, there are just three steps: 1) Create or select an existing web functional test that satisfies ...

    Load and Performance Testing; What’s the Difference?

    The difference turns out to be a lot! To start with load and performance testing goals are very different. Load testing goals usually seek to answer questions regarding system capacity, throughput, and client response times for multiple concurrent users. For example, how many concurrent users can the system successfully accommodate? Or how many transactions per second can the system successfully process? Or can the system successfully scale to 1,000 users? Whereas performance testing goals seek to answer questions regarding server processing, and client response times for a single user.
