Stress tests - what do they check?

Stress testing is one of the tools that allows you to assess the effectiveness of the website, its efficiency, and the speed of loading. In short, everything that translates (apart from design and content) into user experience.

Today we are well aware that if a website or application does not provide the user with what he expects, he will not appear on it a second time. One of the basic requirements is the smooth operation of the website, its fast loading, no interruptions of system errors. Imagine you have a website with a handmade jewelry store. Someone decides to buy earrings, but the payment form is extremely slow to load and then there are problems filling it in. How much time do you think the user will be willing to spend before abandoning the purchasing plan and going to the competition?

With the help of stress tests you can check:

  • bottleneck and response times of the system when it is loaded with the assumed number of users,
  • reaction to overloading it with more users,
  • whether the system works stably under long-term, constant load,
  • functioning in extreme conditions, with a rapid increase in the number of users (e.g. on Black Friday),
  • performance and availability of system components.

Why is it worth investing in tests?

Performance tests are, above all, a chance to check how the website or application works, if there are no errors in the system that may significantly hinder its efficient functioning. System performance is no less important than user-friendly design, interface and interesting content. If the website is slow to run, there will be problems with launching it, going to a certain step, users will simply give up. This, in turn, will mean losses for you. By conducting tests and making the necessary corrections, you can prepare for such situations. You will no longer be surprised by the crowd of users on Black Friday. You will use your chance if the system works with you. It is not only about extreme situations, but about the smooth operation of the system every day. This is the basis of success on the web, especially in the e-commerce industry.

To improve website performance, commission performance tests to professionals who know their work and have the right tools and experience. After the performance audit, you will always receive a list of recommendations that you should implement in your infrastructure to improve the speed and performance of your software or website. After the necessary tweaks, you can request a re-audit to check the improvement in performance. Also, remember to re-audit any major changes to your systems or software.
