Load Testing Reveals Performance Issues: Where to Look to Solve Them

Load testing is a leading indicator. In business and economics, a leading indicator is something that suggests a greater change is about to come. We can apply that concept, too, to load testing: load testing’s a leading indicator of greater issues in your app or site.

Reduce Rapid App Development Risk with Continuous and Consistent Load Testing

The shift in development styles to rapid deployment (rapid app development) has been great in many ways for developers, for devops and for business. You’re likely implementing continuous integration and continuous delivery in as many places as you can. Or your CI/CD imperatives have come down from management.

How to Randomize URLs in Your Load Tests

You’ve run your baseline load tests and you’ve tracked what you think is regular user behavior with browsing, shopping carts, checkout and the like. But as experienced developers, we know one thing: there’s no such thing as “regular user behavior.” So when you’re ready to take your load testing to the next level, try this script showing you exactly how to randomize URLs in your load tests.

Webinar Recording: Performance testing in the cloud

Performance testing is an essential part of today's DevOps workflows. It requires the capability to run load tests both locally and in the cloud to address different users' needs at different stages of the software development cycle. Local testing for developers early in the development cycle. Cloud testing for developers and QA teams that need to run much larger tests later in the dev cycle.

Cloud execution services free you from having to maintain your own load generation infrastructure. Watch this webinar to learn how you can run performance tests in the cloud using the open source load testing tool - k6.

Automate Load Testing with GitLab CI

In the GitLab 2018 Global Developer Report it says:

"As we look at 2018 and beyond, IT organizations that successfully adopt continuous improvement practices and seamless automation across their software development lifecycle will have happier, more collaborative, and well-functioning teams who are better positioned to meet their goals and objectives."

60% report automating more of the software development lifecycle as a top priority.

Other key findings from the survey:

  • 61% agree that developers in their organization understand how their changes affect the performance of their application(s)
  • 92of respondents agree that open source tools are critical to software innovation
  • 90% of managers, compared to 84% of developers, agree that practicing Continuous Integration (CI) alleviates blockers in the development process.

Testing came out on top when respondents were asked where in the development process they encountered the most delays: 

From the report: Manual testing and a change of plans mid-process (often by non-technical stakeholders) cause headaches for developers. As one respondent summarized, “We need to plan better and automate more,” a sentiment that was echoed across multiple responses.

We can see from the above that automating the testing process as part of the CI pipeline is a critical area of improvement for development and DevOps teams. Performance testing is a key component of the overall testing process. Performance testing as part of your Continuous Integration process allows developers test early in the development cycle. This makes finding and fixing performance issues faster and more efficient.
