So far the discussions about the nonfunctional specifications have been dormant during testing progress meetings. On the other hand, the development of the system components is still going on and these components have reached a stable state along with the automated test scripts. Consequently, at this point, the automation vision can be enlarged, and of course what follows is a meeting to discuss the action plans, such as:
How are the developed components performing?
Are there any improvement key points to be targeted?
What are the hardware and network capacity requirements?
What are the numbers around resource utilization?
Obviously, you were expecting to hear about performance testing. So where do you start and how do you execute this in Test Studio?
This chapter takes you through a step-by-step performance plan for a web application, and it demonstrates the following activities:
Configuring Test Studio for performance testing
Creating web application tests
