Hardware Tuning and Software Tuning

Performance Tuning is also important during Performance Testing. The procedure involves improving the entire system’s performance after finding out the exact problems. It could also be problems found or those anticipated – the most important thing is making sure your system is in the best condition for operation. And while there is hardware tuning, there is also software tuning.

Hardware Tuning mainly involves improving the system’s hardware components to boost performance. Software Tuning, on the other hand, is identifying problems with the software (database, code, etc.) and providing fixes.
