F12 – 403: Interpreting and Reporting Performance Test Results (Part 2)

Track: Performance Testing

In the second part of this session, we will try to codify the analytic steps we went through in the first session where we learned to observe, form hypotheses, draw conclusions and take steps to confirm them, and finally report the results. The process can best be summarized in a CAVIAR approach for collecting and evaluating performance test results:

  • Collecting
  • Aggregating
  • Visualizing
  • Interpreting
  • Analyzing
  • Reporting

We will also discuss an approach for reporting results in a clear and compelling manner, with data-supported observations, conclusions drawn from these observations, and actionable recommendations. A link will be provided to the reporting template that you can adopt or adapt to your own context.

Come prepared to participate actively!
