For more and
more companies, a functioning software and IT system is essential, when it
comes to selling products and services. It is especially important for clients
to be able to operate a website or system, which is free of errors or security
gaps and manageable in terms of time. UTRUST will support you with load and
performance tests, in order to help you provide your users with the best possible
service. Our performance experts develop conclusive test cases based on
realistic scenarios, in order to assess how users have experienced your system.
For example, if you anticipate a load profile of 500,000 additional users per
day, because of a special campaign, we will test the load behaviour with a load
test for this type of extreme situation.
tests and load tests for your website, when testing websites, we focus on two
aspects of your services and infrastructure:
From the user
point of view:
For your users, a fast response will produce a high level of satisfaction and
high usage. If you meet these criteria, you will have an edge in the eyes of
the relevant user group, so that you can apply competitive pressure.
operator point of view:
From your point of view, good but not excessive use will produce a positive
cost/benefit ratio for your IT systems. The measurements and indicators that we
define will help you identify the need for investment at an early stage.
special load tools to monitor the infrastructure and detect system components
that are currently restricting overall performance or will do so in the future.
Two components are involved:
generation in a simulated test environment
Setting up a
control system within the original system
testing experts also use these tools to determine the maximum permissible
system loads and identify system bottlenecks.
detection of errors by testing during development
The causes of
load and performance problems are often deeply rooted in the architecture. It
is important to introduce early fault detection. As well as load and
performance tests at system integration stage, UTRUST also offers tests and
reviews during development. For example, we work with agile testing teams who
measure the performance trend objectively and continuously. When defined
thresholds are exceeded, performance can be repeatedly optimized without any
adverse effect on the system due to early intervention.
testing: This includes defining performance requirements, generating
performance scripts, running appropriate tests and reporting on results.
benchmarking: We assess how systems perform under known load conditions.
This service is often used at design or requirements stage.
optimization: We use performance test scripts in a proactive way, in order
to identify bottlenecks and make recommendations for improving application
