SOFTWARE DEVELOPER AND ASPIRING TRAVELER
Many people have been coming up with better ways of testing the efficiency and reliability of a wide range of IT infrastructure. The main aim of doing all this is to ensure that all the soft wares being used are offering the best utility to their users. There is a broad range of factors that determine the quality of service being offed by a platform. One of the main factors that have an effect on the quality of utility being rendered by the commodity is concurrent users.
This refers to the number of people using the facility at a given time. In cases where the number is high than the needed one then the quality of utility will become compromised in many ways. When using an IT platform ensure that the number of people using the facility is not bigger than the maximum number that can be supported by the platform.
Load testing is one of the ways in which experts have been able to test the responsiveness of different soft wares. Some soft wares are swifter than others. This is because they have been engineered in that manner or it can multi-task and thus the number of people using the platform will not compromise the quality of utility being rendered by the facility (to read more about this, see the full post here).
By taking exercising load testing one will also be able to know the maximum service that can be offered by the product. This refers to both normal situation and also when the facility is operating at its peak.
Stress testing has also been used by some people to experiment how a software would work under certain conditions. When a facility is pushed to its limits one will be able to know the maximum service that can be offered. Most of the IT infrastructure behave differently when under certain conditions. By enacting stress testing, one will be able to know how best he can manipulate the facility so as to get maximum utility from it.
With the availability of stress testing many people using soft wares that are being multi-tasked can receive maximum utility from the properties by simply altering a number of things so as to create a more suitable environment for the facilities to render better services to its users.
