Software Performance Testing

Software Performance Testing

In software engineering, performance testing is in general testing performed to determine how a system performs in terms of responsiveness and stability under a particular workload. It can also serve to investigate, measure, validate or verify other quality attributes of the system, such as scalability, reliability and resource usage.

Performance testing is a subset of performance engineering, an emerging computer science practice which strives to build performance into the implementation, design and architecture of a system.

Famous quotes containing the words performance and/or testing:

    But her performance keeps no day;
    Breaks time, as dancers,
    From their own music when they stray.
