Track: Performance Testing
This session will cover the expansive understanding of performance testing metrics and how they can be used to drive quality initiatives upstream and downstream in the application lifecycle. Too often today we see that performance measurements (CPU, DISK, MEMORY, NETWORK) are left out of early testing automation and pass/fail criteria, when it would be absolutely more cost-effective if we could find and fix those bottlenecks earlier. Testers who are new to performance testing success criteria will learn new ways to correlate and analyze performance measurements and extrapolate the results in a reliable and repeatable way. Testers who are interested in taking their bug-finding skills to a whole new level will be delighted to expand into performance-related testing investigation, exploration and risk analysis.
