Step 1. Identify tools and Test Environment
The first step is to identify the production environment, testing tools, and testing environment, which allows the testing team to design the test properly and identify performance testing challenges.
Step 2. Set Performance Criteria
Set metrics of successful performance testing results, such as response time, which is essential to determine your testing goals and demonstrate test success at the end.
Step 3. Design Tests
During this phase, identify typical real-world performance issues situations and consider your user variability to design tests for different use cases.
Step 4. Prepare Tools and Test Environment
Assemble the tools for your testing and configure the test environment before execution. With WeTest PerfDog, you can simply plug-and-play and there is no need for extra modification on hardware or apps.
Step 5. Run the Test
This is the phase where you execute the tests using your specific testing tools. After the test execution, you can check the test records and monitor your test results.
Step 6. Analyze, Report, and Retest
After receiving your first test results, analyze the data and share them with your team. Fix the performance bottlenecks and then run performance tests again until no more new issues are found.
