Performance testing of applications is done to ensure that applications they are working as expected with different load conditions.
If applications goes live without performance testing, it may cause the system to run slow while multiple users using the applications will face usability problem.
Different Types of Performance Testing:
1) Load Testing:
Load testing is meant to test the system by constantly and steadily by increasing the load on the system till the time it reaches the threshold limit.
2) Stress Testing:
Stress testing is a type of performance testing focused on determining an application's robustness, availability, and reliability under extreme conditions.
The main purpose of this process is to make sure that the system fails and recovers gracefully.
3) Volume Testing:
Volume testing is a type of performance testing to test software applications with a large amount of data and then test the application's performance on it.
The basic work flow to test the Performance of Mobile Applications consists of:
Server Conditions: It consists of load on server, workload.
