Ensure your applications always provide optimum service
Whatever your field of business, your web applications (intranet & internet) have become strategic points that require your full attention. It is essential to be aware of their limits by testing the load they are able to handle (calculated in terms of number of simultaneous sessions and/or number of unique visits in an hour). You should also have control over how they operate and behave when they are exposed to varying traffic loads (load increases).
Delivered as a turnkey solution, ip-label’s load testing solution gives you the answers to your questions:
- Does my application conform to specifications?
- Does it show regression compared to the earlier version?
- Is the architecture correctly sized to handle the expected load?
- How does virtualization affect the quality of service that my application provides?
A turnkey load-testing service from ip-label
This service is provided in project mode by ip-label, a trustworthy third party, using methodology that has proven itself in over ten years of testing. A neutral and independent senior consultant carries out ip-label testing of your platform, pinpointing its defects and making recommendations on how you can optimize it, without taking sides.
The aim is to test the ability of web applications to handle increases in load by stressing them to the breaking point. These tests make you aware of the scalable points of your application. Using this information you can anticipate unavailability problems or access bottlenecks that can appear frequently during traffic peaks.
Load testing can be carried out from the intranet or the internet. ip-label provides a dedicated load-testing infrastructure with bandwidth speed of over 1GBits/s. Unlike other load testing solutions on the market, ip-label performs tests from end to end, by stressing the application from the internet, on the user side.
Business, audience, and analysis-oriented displays
Load testing lets you know whether your objectives have been achieved and with which configurations. Your targets can be measured, for instance, by number of orders or number of unique visitors per hour. Load testing also allows you to visualize the load sensitivity of all user behaviors (scenarios). This part makes it possible, in particular, to pinpoint bottlenecks.
