If you ever asked yourself “What is the difference between Performance Testing and Load Testing”, below are listed some of the main characteristics of Performance Testing and Load Testing, and how are they different from one another.

What is Performance Testing?

Performance Testing represents the characteristics of a system, how fast is that system, in general it refers to the tests undertaken to determine how that system behaves and performs.

Prerequisites for Performance Testing

We need to have clearly defined goals before starting any performance tests. The goals defined will help us if after getting the performance tests results there is a need for system improvement.

Performance Testing Results

After running performance tests, you need to inspect the metrics like response and latency times, hits per second, throughput per second, errors (client side metrics) and CPU, Memory, I/O (server side metrics) for the system tested.

Performance Testing Goals

Set a base line for the system under test for future releases and potential improvement of the system. It helps to identify potential bottlenecks, that can be found at different levels: system level (client and server side), DB level, network level.
