Load testing

Load Testing is end to end performance testing under production load. The primary objective of this test is to determine the response times for various time critical transactions and business processes and that they are within documented expectations.The test also measures the capability of the application to function correctly under load, by measuring transaction pass/fail/error rates.

Load testing is important to repeat as load tests may need to be executed several times in the first year of wide scale deployment, to ensure that new releases and changes in database size do not push response times beyond prescribed load. Application should work properly under mentioned load for prescibed number of users.
