Here in the U.S. it’s almost Thanksgiving. That means, of course, that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are not far behind. Black Friday is still a very big day for retail stores and ecommerce sites. But, as predicted, Black Friday has become “Black Fri-month” as retailers have been starting their promotions earlier and earlier to try to get a jump on the competition.
Successful performance testing of websites, web apps and APIs requires planning. You may want to jump in, pick a load testing tool and start testing, but let’s take some time to establish our methodology first. A software performance testing methodology requires a number of steps. Let’s break them down into 3 phases:
According to the Harvard Business Review (HBR), continuous development (what we usually call continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD)) will change the world as much as the Agile revolution did. (See the original article here.)

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.
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.
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.
As a developer, you are being asked to get more deeply involved in the software testing and QA process. Delivering high quality code means not only passing functional tests, but also performance tests. The user experience of your website, app or API is highly dependent on performance.
