Web Application Testing: Performance

In order to improve the end user experience for websites & web applications, we execute performance testing in a way that ensures each performs well within their projected workload. Functionalities and features supported by a web application are not the only concern, response time and page load times are very important as well. The end goal of performance testing is not merely to unearth bugs but also remove performance barriers. For Performance testing, we employ GTMetrix which informs us of a website’s full performance rating. GTMetrix reports full details on how the site loads and helps us to determine where the barriers are. Its key features are Page speed and YSlow scores. It provides a detailed page speed analysis and provides approximately 30 suggestions and approaches on how to improve a website’s speed and overall performance.
