Advanced Performance Metrics and Measures

This session will cover the expansive understanding of system performance testing metrics and how they can be used to drive quality initiatives upstream and downstream in the application lifecycle. Too often today we see that performance measurements for processor, network, memory and storage are left out of early testing automation and pass/fail criteria, when it would be absolutely more cost-effective if we could find and fix those bottlenecks earlier. Testers who are new to performance testing success criteria will learn new ways to correlate and analyze performance measurements and extrapolate the results in a reliable and repeatable way. Testers who are interested in taking their bug-finding skills to a whole new level will be delighted to expand into performance-related testing investigation, exploration and risk analysis.

Session Takeaways:

  • Overview of the big picture for computer performance testing and what it’s all about.
  • A very deep journey into computer hardware components and how they are measured.
  • An updated approach to when and how to measure component performance.
  • Tips for automating the measurement, comparison, analysis and notification.
