Load Testing Web Applications4:19 with Ryan Saul
In this video, we will discuss how to stressing your application can help test to be sure it will work.
- Load test: How quickly does the server respond to a certain amount of users? Usually this test will measure responsiveness, then add more users and measure responsiveness again.
- Stress test: How many users can the server handle before it doesn't respond at all? This test continues to add more users until the server shuts down entirely.
- Soak test: Can the server handle a load of users for a long period of time? This test puts a certain amount of users on the server for a period of several days to measure reliability.
