Load Testing is such a unique blessing and overall technological advancement to mankind. It is truly a gift beyond words or description. Any IT specialist or server technician will not disagree. Load Testing has, in fact, served to remove many stressful loads from off of many an imperfect human being’s shoulders. This especially relates to those working in the world of computers and server technology as a whole.
“Load testing differs from stress testing, which evaluates the extent to which a system keeps working when subjected to extreme workloads or when some of its hardware or software has been compromised. The primary goal of load testing is to define the maximum amount…”
Load Testing can download multiple larger files from the World Wide Web and successfully transfer them to their required following destination for processing. In addition, Load Testing can run a great number of different applications all at once, making better use of the time and space available to both the computer and the person in charge of it. These applications may be run simultaneously from either a computer or a server, or even between both.
Multiple print jobs may be assigned within a queue. Also, servers may be assigned to larger inflows of incoming email traffic. Such amounts are not much for Load Testing to review and process. In fact, it is one of its primary functions and specialties. Who needs all of those deleted emails, and who knows what to do with them all in the end? Load Testing most certainly has a place and a time for that, and it gives the solution in both a rapid and timely manner. Common tools used for load testing are LoadRunner, LoadView, and Manage Engine.
Load Testing also reads and writes hard disk information on a continual basis, constantly checking for errors and updates in the process. There are also two known ways to conduct a Load Test. The first method is done through Longevity Testing. This is also known and referred to as Endurance Testing. Endurance Testing checks and optimizes the specific abilities of any given system. It checks the ability to handle large and frequent workloads.
