Description
  • Understand the performance testing process: planning, preparation, execution, and reporting
  • Relate performance testing to the development process
  • Understand performance goals and objectives
  • Learn how to deal with environment and architecture issues
  • Define operational profiles and load definitions
  • Understand and select the various types of performance tests
  • Define and select appropriate measurements

In the Real World
This course provides an introduction to the complexities of software performance testing and delivers testing skills that participants can immediately apply back on the job. Using a real-world case study, you will encounter issues, decisions, and testing experiences comparable to those in your own work environment. Working through a series of discussion-based exercises—individually, in small teams, or as a group—you develop a workable strategy for performance testing an application/system. The focus of the exercises is on analysis of a situation and understanding the planning and design issues associated with performance testing.  This course does not focus on problem analysis, tuning, debugging, or tools.

Who Should Attend?
System testers, system designers, system tuners, software engineers, quality assurance professionals, and project leaders who are involved in systems testing can benefit from this course. A working knowledge of system testing and quality assurance fundamentals is assumed, but no specific technical background (e.g., UNIX, TCP/IP) is required. This course is for beginning to intermediate skill levels relating to software performance testing. This is not an advanced course dealing with specific tuning and assessment issues.

In the Real World
This course provides an introduction to the complexities of software performance testing and delivers testing skills that participants can immediately apply back on the job. The focus is on what a tester needs to know in order to be successful. We will address the more common pitfalls and mistakes that lead to the potential failure of the performance test. We will discuss the value of designing a proper test and the realities that accompany gathering the necessary data and information required to be successful. This course does not focus on problem analysis, tuning, debugging, or the use of particular tools. We will address the types of tools and their general usage within the performance testing process. Tools are important but are secondary to the planning, analysis and design of the performance testing requirements.

Who Should Attend
System testers, system designers, system tuners, software engineers, quality assurance professionals, and project leaders who are involved in systems testing can benefit from this course. A working knowledge of system testing and quality assurance fundamentals is assumed, but no specific technical background (e.g., UNIX, TCP/IP) is required.
