Jmeter Performance Testing is a non-functional testing technique in the software testing process that verifies the speed, response time, stability, reliability, scalability, and resource usage of a web application, and APIs under various measures like user count, time, etc.
Let’s see the purpose of Performance Testing for any type of software – web/mobile or services is to meet the service levels expectation on production and confirm that the end-user should access all the web features without any hassles.
We can start early by analyzing the network, load balancer, application, database, and web servers, hardware configuration, etc. the costs for correcting a performance problem escalate as the development process moves forward like for other Quality verifications at early stages in SDLC lifecycles. In general, we can consider starting performance testing as soon as several web pages are working, the first test can be executed. However, performance testing must be an integral part of the regular testing routine each day for each build of the software.
As mentioned in our previous blog on Automation ROI Performance testing also involves cost for executions and reporting, once the test plan (performance test architecture) scripts are set up.
In short, development costs are incurred once and execution can go on every sprint cycle as soon the build releases for manual & automation testing.
Most features are common however depending on your requirement tools selection can be done, as some of them are licensed, supporting protocol, etc.
The Apache JMeter™ application is open-source software, a 100% pure Java application designed to perform load/stability, etc. testing to test functional & non-functional behavior and measure performance. It was originally designed for testing web applications but has been expanded to other test functions for API, record, playback etc.
JMeter is vast with a variety of options to manage test plans. JMeter offers a comprehensive and user-friendly GUI. JMeter also provides support to use Selenium-created files to perform load testing on it.
JMeter is one of the best tools that offer a great user experience. However, it requires technical expertise but once you get familiar you will surely be in love with JMeter. There are a lot of possibilities to explore and perform about this tool.
Beyond Key utilizes software testing best practices while performing test data creation, development of scripts, executions of scripts, test summary reports, and analysis on response and latencies also covers detailed documents on executions.
We streamline the development of scripts and 1st execution of the scripts for our clients to be further executed by them as and when needed.
