"The results of conducting an evaluation of the performance of a new system and infrastructure can be dramatic."
  The graph illustrates how architecture defects where identified and removed prior to deployment of a business critical system. The implications for the enterprise of going live with the defects undetected can only be imagined!

Graph 1

Typical issues that are identified during a performance test fall into the following categories:
  • Under-performance - A leading test tool vendor reports that over 90% of their clients found their applications under-performed significantly.
  • Defects - New defects appear when an application placed under load from concurrent multiple usage.
  • Bottleneck Identification - Rate-limiting components can be identified for capacity planning purposes.
  • Response times - Service levels defined by the business for response to users can be measured.
  • Fail over arrangements - can be validated while the system is under realistic load.
  • 24/7 Operation - Pre-deployment load tests reduce risks of failures in continuous running (e.g. memory leaks).
  • Scalability - can your new system support rapid customer growth? Find out if your application scales up - before deployment.
  • SSL Secure Links - SSL results in reduced performance.
  • Upgrades and patches - each upgrade or patch can compromise functionality and performance
  • Network investigation - network components can create bottlenecks.
  • Improve Capacity Planning - capacity planners are provided with accurate data on which to base sizing assumptions.
