Realize full potential of your Load Testing Scripts by reusing them for Monitoring

Business across the bench have integrated load and performance testing into their development chain because they can no longer afford being affected by slowdowns or not responding applications. According to research, load times of 4 seconds or above lead to high abandon rates, and with each customer moving away without buying your products online, sales will decline.

Performance Measurement pre-production

Early load test implementation and execution helps you to identify hotspots on pre-production stages. Your developers will have enough time to fix such defects in pre-production stages. Once the improved version gets deployed in your QA environment, your testing team can repeat their load test scenario and check if response times are within agreed boundaries. This tuning cycle moves on until all issues have been cleaned out.

Sadly, but true, many organizations stop their performance optimization post-deployment into production because they don’t realize that there are excellent opportunities for re-use. Our dynamic web applications live and die by up-to-date content. Therefore, product teams upload new images, change product catalogs and present their goods in more attractive ways. Some of those modifications often have a negative impact on user experience.

Just a minority of 10 percent of all customers report performance problems. Our service portfolio is rising, and this is eventually a reason that users often move away instead of claiming slow response times. Businesses should realize that permanent performance monitoring is essential to their success because they can’t expect that users will report slowdowns.

Close the Loop

Forward-thinking IT leaders monitor availability, load times and accuracy of their applications 24/7. They set thresholds to get alerts via established notification channels such as SMS, e-mail or trouble tickets when critical issues occur. Application monitoring in productive environments enables pro-active error detection because you no longer need to wait for customers to report problems. Thanks to this technique, your teams are in the driver seat and are aware of problem spots before a real customer gets affected.

Monitoring is not a matter of high investments. With a few best practices, you can quickly switch to a pro-active monitoring strategy. Essential aspects of your monitoring approach are

# Step 1 – Simulate user requests on applications deployed in production

You can recycle your load testing scripts and create a monitoring script out of it within a few clicks. Configure the execution interval and location to make sure that you don’t miss essential regions. Login to the application from location Frankfurt, New York, and Singapore on a 15-minute schedule would be a sample monitoring use case.

# Step 2 – Configure Alerting

You set up monitoring for one purpose; being informed about the health of your productive services. Modern monitoring solutions provide a broad range of alerting configurations. They let you specify thresholds, error patterns and other filters to identify valid issues in your applications. E-Mail, SMS or trouble ticket based notification is the usual approach nowadays.

# Step 3 – Setup Reporting

The best monitoring solution becomes useless without proper setup of analysis and reporting features. You can fully automate the creation of summary reports. Typically, such reports contain high-level details about actual health figures of your application under monitoring. Monitoring results help support teams to investigate alerts, drive remediation tasks and proactively take care of the reliability of their applications.
