Definition of Project developing strategies Stress test.

  • Stress test focuses upon testing those limits of the system’s performance that could impact upon its own or other systems’ performance within the production environment
  • Stress testing is conducted within an environment that matches the production environment as closely as possible
  • Stress testing focuses upon those aspects of a system that can be tuned to improve the efficiency and/or robustness of the system
  • All problems identified during stress testing are notified to the project and tracked through to their resolution using the formal change control procedure
  • Typical stress test will include:

– On-line response times

– Navigation between dialogues

– Recovery following system failures

– Batch run times

– Normal and peak volumes

– Normal and peak frequencies
