Performance Testing

Performance Testing

Predicting performance capability of online solutions is essential to succeed in this competitive market. STC ThirdEye Performance testing center of excellence (PTCOE) team has rich experience in performance engineering tools from vendors like Mercury, Rational, Segue, Open Source Tools (Open STA), etc. We focus on analysis, monitoring, identifying bottle necks and proving recommendations, thus providing an end-to-end performance solution for the complete application.

STC an Independent Testing Services provider offers the following performance testing services to manage your risk with developing or deploying business critical systems. The team will help in determining the scope, complexity and size of the load, and the test architecture used for test execution.
In Load test, we measure server response times to verify if the application can sustain expected maximum number of concurrent users and expected maximum size of the database.

In Stress test, we measure server response times at varying loads starting from low load (low number of concurrent users), medium load (average number of concurrent users) through high load (expected maximum number of concurrent users through highest possible number of concurrent users until unacceptable levels of response times are experienced) to validate application’s stability and validity. Response times are also measured while varying the size of the databases in similar manner.

In Capacity test, we test to determine the maximum number of concurrent users an application can manage without compromising response time.
