Here’s how you run performance, scalability, and load tests.
- Write down what you are going to test.
- Write down how you are going to test it.
- Write down how you are going to measure the test.
- Run the test.
- Report on the test.
- Rinse, Tweak, and Repeat
Don’t worry if, in the first round, you get it wrong, that’s why you rinse, tweak and repeat to keep getting better and better at it.
Most times we get hung up on #1 and #2 because we want it to be perfect, but it never will be, you just need to get started.
