Performance Testing in Production?

I spent a few days in New York City last week attending a couple of meetups, including speaking at a New York City Web Performance Meetup on Thursday night. I had several great conversations around real user monitoring, data science and analytics, and, of course, testing in production.

I had quite a few discussions around how SOASTA CloudTest manages these large cloud environments and if there are any best practices for load server grid management, especially when performance testing using a very large, location-diverse — and even cloud provider-diverse — environment.

Well, of course there are! So what better time to write a blog post about grid management best practices when you’ve just spent a few days in one of the best city grids in the world — New York!

Overview of the CloudTest environment
CloudTest’s load server is implemented as a massively multi-threaded service executing all, or parts of, a complex test composition. (Note: A composition can contain many clips.)

A single node can send and validate responses to thousands of HTTP messages per second. Multiple Maestros can be combined to each execute parts of a large load test. Maestros can be geographically distributed and single test compositions can run geographically distributed while still producing a single integrated set of test results and analytics.

That said, once you have created the tests you want to run, CloudTest lets you select and deploy load generators using internal, public and private cloud resources. For example, you can choose resources from Azure, Amazon EC2 or GoGrid cloud services. CloudTest takes care of deploying and provisioning the load generators, benchmarking the virtual servers for their health, and monitoring the CPU of the load generators while they are running. You can literally deploy a test cloud using hundreds of thousands of virtual users around the globe in minutes. And because you are using cloud resources, you pay only for the resources used during the test.

A CloudTest environment typically contains, at a minimum, a “Main Instance” (server) that contains the web application and a “Maestro” service (load generator). For higher-volume situations, there may be a separate database server that contains the Repository and the Results Service with its Result database.

Optionally, there may be additional servers that contain additional Maestros (load generators) and additional Results Services.

This general structure applies, regardless of whether physical servers are being used or a cloud-based environment is being used, or a combination of the two.

In our example in this blog post, let’s target a cloud-based environment for a high-volume situation.

So let’s get started: Best practices for grid management with SOASTA CloudTest!

Load servers are usually automatically managed by CloudTest. The CloudTest user is only expected to deploy and tear down the grid. But there may be corner cases where grid deployment is not successful; in those cases, the grid may not finish deployment or all listed servers may not be functioning properly.

This blog post provides best practices that should be employed to ensure grids are working, as well as provide troubleshooting steps for cases they are not.

Performance testing and its importance – What do the guest bloggers think?

When it comes to improving a website application or understanding it, whether it’s for a commercial venture or a personal project, it is important for a web application to be tested so that you may know its responsiveness in terms of its stability. Before you put an application live, you have to ensure how well it can handle your workload. Business organizations can also find out a lot about their site through software performance testing and this can easily enhance the structure, design of the system before any coding takes place. Performance testing involves a number of different tests that enable analysis of different aspects of the system.  Hence, one of the easiest ways of testing your website is through load testing. Read on to know more on this process.

The significance of performance testing on businesses

Through load testing, you can easily monitor the response times for each of the transactions made by your system. This type of monitoring can offer you with enough useful information, especially for all those stakeholders and business managers who usually look for conclusions based on such results. Load testing may even raise attention to all those problems in the application software and fix these glitches even before they take the size of a big problem.

In fact, the main reason for carrying out such testing is to report and measure the behavior of the website under a predicted live load. As a result, you can record end user response times and this is indeed a portion of the main business process. Such results can certainly be affected by some other factors which are out of control of the system but still to be on the safer side, you should always perform this kind of load testing.

Types of performance testing that are done

There are some other areas that perform testing to monitor stress and this deal with testing the upper levels of capacity within the system that analyzes how well the application will perform if there’s a sudden increase in the demand of users. Then there is endurance testing that monitors the continuous load of the system. For instance, you can detect potential leaks in memory utilization alongside analyzing the performance degradation and this particular system copes with sustained usage.

Testing for the future performances

With the advancement of technology, performance testing has become gradually more tough to determine. This is due to the complexity of the modern web browsers and the advances like HTML5. With the new web browsers and with the new features, messages are becoming more event-driven and user related.

Hence, in order to be sure about the performance and durability of a web application that is soon to become live,website load testing is a mandatory. You have to ensure certain details before putting it live so that the end users don’t suffer due to mistakes of your own. Take into account the above mentioned details on performance testing if you’re not aware of them.

Load Impact: Why Website Stress Testing Is Necessary?

In a highly professional web designing and load testing companies, the most important thing is to evaluate the website usability. To enhance the website usability, the need is to balance the load impact from time to time. Everyone wants their websites to work well and make a good impression on visitors. No one wants the presence of errors on their websites. Thus, to get rid of the unpleasant surprises, better the website performance first.

Improvement in website performance needs the website stress test where the volume and characteristics of expected traffic get stimulated as practically as possible. Therefore, it is important to pass the website through the stress test. Try to analyze the task performance from every point of view, whether it is a business view, technical view, or web testing tools.

Indications from the Business Point of View

A time taken by the website response is less than 10 seconds. Users get satisfied with the instant reaction if the loading takes place within a few seconds. Even if the loading extends for 2-3 seconds more, users can still wait but not in a satisfactory manner. If still the loading does not take place, then users start getting distracted. But, if it’s being more than 10 seconds, users lose the interest and leave the website.

Poor performance on the website leads to the displeased users, which leads them leaving the website and never return again. Thus, website testing implemented the corresponding measures provided to make the website responsive within 10 seconds. Thus, then there could be the prevention of various losses.

Every company’s expenditure on the website is adequate with the expected traffic. The stress testing can measure the web performance along with its components allowing for the maximum effectiveness.

Representation from the Technical Point of View

A system of the complete web testing requires the entire web application’s ability to function properly. It helps in addressing various issues like readiness if web server for the traffic to increase, server hardware adequacy, the capability to endure a massive spine in user traffic and many more. Web tests can easily define the neglecting performance problems that can lead to the poorly concluded user-experience.

The presence of bugs can also be seen during the under loading of the system. It is impossible to discover the bugs through the system testing as single during the expansion process. That is why, the web testing is crucial in every step.

Before going for the testing, it is important to determine the goal of the stress testing in order to estimate the maximum load for a web server to support. Most performance issues rise under the stressed server with a high user load as many bugs start dealing with thousands of servers before they get surfaced. The performance of stress testing identifies the responsive status of the website.

Functions of Web Testing Tools to Work upon Stress

The availability of web testing tools with features and properties are at high stake. While selecting the tool, it becomes difficult to pick the right one. It is important to choose the suitable tool for one’s business. This approach is useful to produce stress test through many identical requests to the server. Thus, take a closer look at the features of the website stress testing tools for making the best choice:

1. Emulates the Activity of Users

With the help of virtual users, stress testing tools emulates the activity of consumers. Users profile describes the deeds of the virtual users. This allows emulating a real load impact on a tested server. It includes the definitive number of virtual users to process a defined set of transactions in a limited time.

2. Recording Actions While Browsing the Website

Focus on performing the steps of a virtual user to create the profile. This is helpful while running the test. Thus, this scenario can be put on recursion for many times.

3. Variable Load Level

The load level is flexible and variable. It can be either constant or increased or decreased. However, load impact considerably depends on the user type to introduce new types of users for the fast and slow process.

4. Determining Problems in the Overall Performance

For determining the existence of any problem in the performance, it is better to choose the website stress testing tools that provide every detail of it. Summarizing reports and graphs is helpful in finding the specific bottlenecks.

Always remember that the testing tools provide the assertion of reliability and stability of the work for various applications.

Need for speed: how to optimise website performance

Website performance radically impacts our success, 64% of smartphone users expect websites to load in under four seconds.

However, average page weights are still on the rise.

As marketers, website performance can seem utterly beyond our control. Here’s how to change that…

Drawing on Cyber-Duck’s current website performance optimisation processes I’ll highlight the key performance-related issues you should be raising with your developers – whether in-house or outsourced.

The idea is to give you back the control so you can ensure your users have a fast loading experience not only when browsing at home or work, but also when using a wireless hotspot in an airport lounge or a mobile network connection.

Plan for poor connections speeds from the design stage

If you start your project by thinking about the needs of users with slower connections, you’ll already be making great strides to improving performance. It’s far easier to expand on that vision, scaling up the experience when there is more bandwidth, than the reverse.

Set performance budgets

It’s really worth setting performance budgets for your website, in terms of page size (e.g. 500KB for a homepage).

Take into account both super-fast connections and powerful new devices alongside sketchy Wi-Fi, slow mobile connections and old devices. For instance, a 10MB homepage is unlikely to load well on your parents’ six year old laptop or on your cousin’s hand-me-down HTC device that you gave them four years ago.

Performance budgets force the whole team to make conscious decisions about whether to use heavy features like carousels, which may look great but run the risk of giving users on old devices and slow connections a disappointing experience.

Designer and developer collaboration

As performance is such a key part of the user experience, it can’t be an afterthought that’s left until the end of development.

To ensure this isn’t the case, your designers and developers need to collaborate from the start. Key milestones, such as signing off the art direction or the wireframes, need to be approved from a performance perspective by your developers. Otherwise, they may be stuck with designs or features that can’t realistically be implemented within your performance budget.

Reducing required processing time and power

There are loads of optimisation techniques that improve your website’s performance by reducing the processing time and power that the device, whether mobile, tablet or desktop, needs to load the website. Many of these are quite technical, but without going into the nitty gritty details, it’s still useful to know what solutions your developers should be suggesting:

  • Avoid plugins where possible. Features like carousels, tabbed interfaces, lightboxes and scrolling are often implemented using plugins, but these plugins are heavy, as they try to solve every scenario imaginable. Often your developers can achieve the same effect with a few lines of code.
  • Optimise images. Yes, a picture can speak a thousand words but images and videos can also take up thousands of KBs in your tight performance budget. Fortunately, there are numerous solutions so you should ask your developers which they use. Some examples are using image compression tools, ensuring the right image type is used (e.g. photographs work better as JPEGs whereas flat colour graphics should be PNGs) and even customising the image so the main subject stays high quality, while the background is lighter and performance optimised.
  • Automate media optimisation in a CMS. Ensuring images are optimised before launch is often not enough, as many images will be uploaded later via your CMS. We encountered this issue when creating BAM’s new mobile-optimised website, and resolved it by achieving a reasonable degree of automated image optimisation in their CMS. It’s not rocket science, most CMS systems have settings that allow a degree of media optimisation, but it is critical that these settings are actually applied.
  • Optimise fonts. While using your brand fonts for your website is important to you, it may not be the user’s first priority, so when speed is really necessary you can improve it by deferring font loading. Initially, the browser uses whatever font is available so that the user gets the content quickly. Your chosen font is only loaded after that.
  • Take advantage of loading techniques. You can raise perceived speed by loading content that is above the fold before the rest of the page. Conditional, ‘lazy’ loading takes this one step further by only loading heavy items like images that are towards the bottom of the page if the user chooses to scroll. Similarly, pre-loading tries to anticipate user behaviour and provide a faster experience by loading the page the user is likely to view next.
  • Utilise browser caching. Files that aren’t regularly updated should be cached so they don’t need to be loaded every time a recurring visitor views them.
  • Reduce feature testing. It’s recommended for developers to incorporate feature-testing libraries into their code. However, many make the mistake of implementing the entire library, and testing for all capabilities when only a few are relevant. This can really slow a site down so it’s worth customising the library and only testing what you need.
