Other Testing That Takes Place During Performance Testing

Apart from load testing, capacity testing, and stress testing, other testing procedures are done to determine the site’s or application’s performance. They include;

Volume Testing: To determine data quantity that can be managed effectively by the system

Spike Testing: To record observations on any sudden increase or decrease in the number of users.

Soak Testing: To determine system behavior using response time and stability as factors when the load is applied for an extended number of hours.
