Welcome to Performance Testing!

This section features performance testing guidance. Performance testing is a type of testing intended to determine the responsiveness, throughput, reliability, and/or scalability of a system under a given workload. Performance testing is commonly conducted to accomplish the following:

  • Assess production readiness
  • Evaluate against performance criteria
  • Compare performance characteristics of multiple systems or system configurations
  • Find the source of performance problems
  • Support system tuning
  • Find throughput levels


  • Performance Testing Guidance for Web Applications - This guide shows you an end-to-end approach for implementing performance testing. Whether you are new to performance testing, or looking for ways to improve your current performance testing approach, you will find insights that you can tailor for your specific scenarios. This guide provides steps for managing and conducting performance testing. For simplification and tangible results, performance testing is broken down into activities with inputs, outputs, and steps. You can use the steps as a baseline or to help you evolve your own process.
