S13-503: Modern Web Application Performance Landmines

Track: Performance Testing

As a tester, you do not have the luxury or the time to test repeatedly to try and fix slow, poorly-performing applications during load tests. You need to get to the cause of performance quickly and fix issues fast and efficiently. There are tools that can help in identifying application issues, but many are not effective for testing in an environment where the boundaries between preproduction and production are increasingly blurred. This session will expand beyond the top 3 performance landmines (size, deployment issues and overhead through logging/tracking) and address issues including excessive database, synchronization and 3rd party content.

This session will offer a review of the top 3 application performance landmines and provide details on other application issues that can impact performance. It will also offer load testing best practice tips for finding and fixing these problems.

Session Takeaways:

  • Rapidly determine the root cause of problems down to the component, SQL statement, or Method level.
  • Reduce testing iterations and cycle time.
  • Validate architecture for maximum scalability.
