Load Test/ Performance Test Industry Standards

Soumya Nayak-2
HI Team,

Is there any link or reference in JMeter website or any forum specifically which talks about industry standards to follow for  a load test or stress test etc.

Regards,
Ranjan

Load Test/ Performance Test Industry Standards

Soumya Nayak-2
HI Team,

Anybody has any idea on the below.
Is it something like there are no such defined industry standards for load test as the configurations changes based on business requirement from each application to application and organization.

Ranjan

Hi Ranjan

I haven't heard of any standards for load testing. But if you find some,
you are welcome to make us aware of them.

Why do you need such a standard?

 Hi Ranjan,
What kind of industry standards are you looking for?
If we are talking about load testing as a practice, we probably can talk about best practices in the best case (or, as some argue, good practices in a specific context).One attempt to get it together is ASTQB performance testing foundation certification - see syllabus at https://www.istqb.org/downloads/send/59-performance-testing/239-istqb-ctfl-pt-syllabus-2018-ga.html 
 
It may be some standards that may cover some terminology - something like ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-1:2013

ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119-1:2013

Software and systems engineering — Software testing — Part 1: Concepts and definitions
 |

 |

 |


but practically no practitioners are aware about their existence and actual used terminology may differ.
What response time should be is another area where there is a lot of discussion. If you want to look into that area, you may find many links in Magic Numbers or Psychological Thresholds?

Magic Numbers or Psychological Thresholds?

I would like to return to the last year Performance Calendar post Magic numbers by Gilles Dubuc. When I read it,...

There were other attempts to document best practices - something like maturity models for performance engineering and capacity planning - but none practically got beyond being an interesting article.

There are some industry frameworks - such as ITIL - that covers some performance-related areas.

So what are you actually looking for and why?

Regards,Alex

Re: Load Test/ Performance Test Industry Standards

Hi

I don't believe there are industry standards about load testing given the
amount of variations in application architectures, underlying hardware, OS,
software, load patterns, etc.

Most load testing tools will offer you best practices that you should
follow when using them. For example- JMeter has its own.
<https://jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/best-practices>

If you're interested in some literature, you could consider reading this
book Foundations of Software and System Performance Engineering
<https://learning.oreilly.com/library/view/foundations-of-software/9780133038149/>
.
<https://learning.oreilly.com/library/view/foundations-of-software/9780133038149/>
