STAREAST 2024 Concurrent Session : Stressed About Performance Testing? Simulate It!


Thursday, May 2, 2024 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Stressed About Performance Testing? Simulate It!

Preparing your software application to handle peak loads and high-volume conditions is vital, whether your business is seasonal operations like e-commerce during holiday seasons, a ticketing system for big events, a live streaming service hosting the World Cup, or a financial institute that must provide seamless transactions. Load and performance testing, along with the creation of a simulated environment for testing, is your key to success. This combination provides the understanding of how your application will behave under high-stress circumstances and ensures stability and performance. In this session, join Grigori to discuss how to: reuse API tests to integrate load and performance testing into your CI/CD workflow, simulate a real end user experience without the cost of a complete performance testing environment, and leverage virtual data for on-demand performance testing and bypass the constraints of production data.
