Why is performance testing important and what are the benefits?

What’s the deal with the performance?

  • Time behavior — that is, how the system reacts to user input over time and under certain conditions.
  • Resource utilization — that is, how many and what resources the system consumes during a specific load.
  • Capacity — carried out in order to assess the system architecture with the assumed required performance limits.
