Our Performance Testing Services
  • Load Testing

  • Ensure your application performs excellently at peak load. We focus on optimizing the load balancing configuration or different disaster recovery scenarios and then verify you have sufficient load injection capacity for the targeted concurrency. We also execute isolation load tests to pinpoint any problems and then supply the results to the developers or application vendor. We perform simulations to gauge the end-user workload impact and execute rigorous validation of upcoming responses to meet performance targets for availability, concurrency or throughput, and response time.

  • Identify performance problems that may appear only after an extended period of time with our expert scalability and stability testing service. Our performance testing primarily focuses on the in-depth scalability and stability of the application for addressing user limit, transaction counts frequency, server-side robustness, and degradation. We test response time, screen transition, throughput, session/execution time, network/CPU utilization, and more. We only utilize test data of the highest quality to ensure your application remains stable enough and scales up correctly.

  • Scalability and Stability Testing

  • Stress and Endurance Testing

  • Improve sustainability and tenacity of your application with our robust stress and endurance testing services. We perform stress testing to establish horizontal scalability limits for servers. Our experienced performance testers induce real-world scenarios like stress and soak to your application to discover how the application handles worst-case scenarios. We clearly understand how much spare capacity should remain within the application landscape to provide the data to plan for future growth of traffic or transaction volume and application users.

  • Smartly analyze your applications' key performance aspects and improve poorly performing sections of code with our expert code reviews and profiling services. We supervise the preparation of reports of performance tests and measurement in production, explain them to stakeholders, and mediate consultations about necessary and possible modifications to improve performance. We perform profiling of SQL queries, HTTP requests, and even unit tests to identify the most problematic part of the performance as well as review memory leak issues to optimize memory usage.

Our Performance Testing Services Approach

Good application performance is achieved by not just implementing tools but also adopting the right approach. We observe the end-to-end behavior of each performance component under different load and stress scenarios and fix them beforehand. Our approach is ‘more testing and more often’ and so you can end up with high performing application without any problem. Because performance testing can be conducted with different types of metrics, the actual process can vary greatly. We set realistic and appropriate performance targets to improve the testing speed and control the cost of full-cycle testing.
 

 

How We Deliver Business Results

We, at Minds Task Technologies, address key business factors before we implement an effective performance testing strategy. We understand that there is a lot more to performance testing than simply generating a load and watching what happens to improve accuracy, speed, quality, and stability. When performance and functional requirements are formulated, our expert QA team and performance testing engineer ensure that performance and scalability requirements are written in verifiable, measurable terms and that are linked to business and engineering needs.

 

FAQ About Performance Testing Services
What is performance testing?

Performance testing is a type of testing that tests the speed, response time, stability, reliability, scalability, and utilization of software applications while undergoing peak workload. Performance testing generally identifies and eliminates the performance bottlenecks of the application or software system so that it works perfectly fine, responds quickly, handles maximum user load, and stays stable and highly available under varying load conditions and scenarios.

Organizations cannot survive long term without high-performing systems or applications. The need for speed is crucial on the web; whether users are on a high-speed connection or a low speed, everyone demands high availability, better responsiveness, and an amazing experience. A slow-performing system can negatively impact your business in terms of credibility, experience, and revenue.

A performance testing is conducted to identify various issues, such as analyze the nature or location of a software-related performance issue, verify that the system/application meets the specified performance standard, and eliminate all performance-related bottlenecks to ensure it is prepared for a predictable major event.

Performance testing is generally conducted on two types of criteria. The first is load testing, and the second is stress testing. Along with that, there are other types of performance testing methods that can be conducted to determine performance. Some well-known performing testing includes:

Load testing: Help you understand the behavior of an application or system under a specific load value.
Stress testing: Through a system under higher-than-expected traffic loads to check how well the system works above its expected capacity limits.
Soak testing: Simulate a steady increase of end-users over time to test systems' long-term sustainability. It is also called endurance testing,
Spike testing: Analyze an application or system's performance under a sudden and significant boost of simulated end users.
Scalability testing: Measure performance based on the software's ability to scale up or down performance measure attributes.
Capacity testing: Check whether a software application or environment can handle the amount of traffic it was explicitly designed to handle.

If performance testing is not executed effectively, it can negatively impact your application or software system. There are certain factors that you should keep in mind while running performance testing that includes: (1) choosing an appropriate performance testing tool, (2) designing a proper performance testing environment, (3) setting realistic and achievable performance targets, (4) making sure your application is stable enough for performance testing, (5) identifying and scripting the business-critical transactions, (6) providing sufficient test data for eliminating performance bottlenecks, (7) identifying the server and network KPIs, and last but not the least (8) allocating enough time to performance test effectively.

A variety of performance test tools are available in the market. The competition is growing amongst the vendors. It would be best if you chose performance testing tools based on your project requirements and preferences. Below are some examples of well-known performance testing tools:

JMeter: Conduct performance and load testing for analyzing and measuring the performance of a variety of services.
WebLOAD: Enable you to generate real-life and reliable load scenarios for complex systems.
LoadUI Pro: Quickly create script-less sophisticated load tests
LoadNinja: Help you build script-less load tests in quick times.
Gatling: Execute load simulation of concurrent users against the system via JMS, HTTP/S, or JDBC protocols
NeoLoad: Automate test design, maintenance, and analysis for Agile and DevOps teams

Performance testing involves automation tools implementation, load injectors, load balancers network performance tuning, and code-level optimization. So, organizations may face various challenges while conducting performance testing, such as lack of tools support for a particular application, limited compatibility of tools, and some tools that are expensive to adopt.

Sometimes, complex applications or systems are challenging to test with some tools. Besides that, you should also keep an eye on performance bottlenecks challenges such as CPU, memory & network utilization, disk usage, and operating systems' limitations.
