Load and Performance Testing

Our approach to application load and performance testing is tailored for each project. We work closely with our customers to identify the anticipated usage profile on the application, breaking down activities into user journeys, with corresponding transaction volumes and numbers of concurrent users. Our performance team have significant expertise in the open-source JMeter framework, as well the industry leading enterprise solutions: HP LoadRunner / Performance Center and StormRunner Load. We make use of cloud-based load injectors via AWS and Azure and can quickly simulate large amounts of traffic from a wide range of geographic locations and IP addresses. Tests are designed to identify bottlenecks within the layers of software, infrastructure and integrations that make up modern applications, so fixes can be quickly deployed and tests re-run. We can carry out performance testing on a wide range of technologies, including web / mobile, Citrix and major ERP / CRM / Financial solutions, including SAP, SAP HANA and Hybris solutions, utilising end-to-end validation of transactions into connected systems.

  • Lightweight methodology, offshore support and performance accelerators mean we deliver consistent, accurate performance tests
  • Identify and run real-life performance testing scenarios on websites, apps or major business applications before launch or after changes
  • Accurately gauge the ability of infrastructure to support expected and exceptional transaction volumes
  • Measure the effects of high user concurrency on server load in your infrastructure, under realistic conditions with network virtualization
  • Automation of user journeys allows high user volumes and spikes in usage to be simulated
  • Use service and network virtualisation where all elements of an application are not available for a performance test
  • Experienced with integrating performance tests into CI/CD environments to act as ongoing baseline tests
  • Handover of testing assets on project completion, knowledge transfer and initial mentoring

We have been providing software performance testing and performance engineering services for over 15 years. We have expertise with ecommerce platforms, ticketing, digital agencies, legal, professional services, utilities, higher education, Government and charities, among others - applying high volumes of concurrent users and transactions. Contact us to discuss your needs and get a no obligation quotation.

Our dedicated performance team can run performance testing projects on-site, remotely, off-shore. A combination of on / offsite is normally adopted, depending on the systems under test, software architecture and security / access limitations. We work closely with our clients, involving them throughout the process, including inviting them via screen shares to view the tests running in real time. We actively encourage skills transfer to our client’s teams and can integrate performance testing into agile development environments, so that performance tests can be run automatically using Continuous Integration servers, in much the same way automated functional tests are run, to provide confidence at the unit and system levels.

Performance Testing Process

  • Analyse
  • Build
  • Dry run and proving integrated scripts
  • Execution
  • Analysis and Reporting

We were impressed with the thorough and proactive manner the e-testing team carried out performance testing. We were able to rectify problems at the database layer and with load balancing prior to launch, proving the changes made by re-running the tests.
