Performance Defect Report

QA Mentor’s Performance Defect Report provides managers and IT teams with detailed defect descriptions for each performance related issue found during the Performance Test execution.

QA Mentor’s Performance Defect Report provides managers and IT teams with detailed defect descriptions for each performance related issue found during the Performance Test execution. Each defect recorded in the report is mapped to a corresponding requirement in the non-functional requirements document. This mapping helps to validate the existence of the defect, as well as quickly understand the gap between expected and actual behavior. As with most reports, it’s broken into sections for easier consumption and clarity.

Section 1

The defects in this section did not meet the Service Level Agreement (SLA) for the expected transaction turnaround time or response time. For example, a page takes 10 seconds to load as opposed to the 3 seconds specified in the SLA. Or, a report generates in 30 seconds instead of the required 10 second generation time.

Section 2

This section contains observations of performance behavior that could potentially lead to a defect. For example, if the QA team notices that the CPU utilization spikes when 10 virtual users make simultaneous submissions, it will be mentioned in this section.

Section 3

The final section lists data-supported information regarding expected response times vs. actual response times for system or business critical transactions.
