Web Site Monitoring and Performance Insights

Analyzing software applications and supporting infrastructures

Business requirements for web application monitoring and  load testing as a means for ongoing performance measurement and tuning have become more rigorous over the past several years.

Load testing is the process of analyzing software applications and supporting infrastructures to determine acceptable performance, scalability, capacity and transaction handling capabilities by modeling real-world application usage conditions and executing them against the application and supporting infrastructure under test.

Measurements derived with load testing tools should provide a clear understanding of where website performance bottlenecks reside and aid in infrastructure and capacity planning of computing resources.

When derived from meaningful load tests, results serve as a guide to helping IT staff make informed decisions about the performance of their applications and infrastructures. Accurate and realistic load tests are the best indicator of how well any business system is able to service its customers in real-world scenarios.
