Load Testing Services
Load testing tools such as LoadRunner, Cloudtest, and Jmeter are commonly used and data is gathered during the test.
Certified QA Professionals
Load testing is one of the multiple facets of performance testing as a whole to fully exercise the software and hardware and identify any weaknesses, as well as a benchmark where and when the issues arise. During load testing, a normal load, a heavy load, and a projected growth load are determined by using usage statistics. Starting with the lighter load, the number of concurrent users is incrementally increased until the system starts to respond more slowly. The increase is continued until the system actually stops responding at all, thereby discovering the failure threshold. This information is used to determine the load boundaries and locate the bottlenecks.
Load testing services tools such as LoadRunner, Cloudtest, and Rational are commonly used and data is gathered during the test. This data is vital to help identify performance bottlenecks, point to infrastructure weaknesses, and help you to make plans for future scalability due to growth. Load testing services can tell you exactly how many users or transactions your site can handle before response times increase.
Generally, this test will uncover buffer overflow issues, memory leaks, or load balance problems. Performance optimization can then be completed and hardware changes or additions can be made to increase the failure thresholds as needed.
Every site has its breaking point and QA Mentor’s Performance Testing services can help you find yours so you can fix inefficiencies prior to release, add additional hardware, or be prepared for future scalability needs with our Capacity Planning Services.

Preparation for load testing
For the successful execution of load tests, the load testing process should be well-planned and well-structured from the very start of the project and, above all else, this will reduce the testing time. However, even with optimal load test planning, load testing sometimes needs to be rerun at least one time and, consequently, this work will take more time than originally anticipated (because you will have to customize load tests). Best Software Testing Companies focus on assessing the performance of Web, desktop, and mobile applications.
The following guide provides several important points in the preparation of load tests for their successful completion.
- Understand the system requirements of the workload.
- Examine the general and the current number of users that may be needed to support the Website. There are no historical statistics for the applications to be published for the first time. The testing team may be dependent on the requirements specification because it will be necessary to collect specific test data.
- Create the basis: scripts to simulate a single user from a single browser.
- Create load test scripts to simulate multiple web browser sessions (windows) to be open in parallel.
Load testing services need to be used to understand the behavior of a software application by testing it beyond its operational capacity.
