Continuous Load Testing for DevOps

Kevin Dunne

Ensuring that each new release delivers a positive user experience is now more critical than ever. But with cloud-native apps, microservices, and other compartmentalized elements, an application involves many highly distributed components, and a performance issue in any of them could have a ripple effect across the entire application. Now that new functionality is being released weekly, daily, or even hourly, each team needs instant insight into whether their incremental changes could negatively affect performance. However, legacy performance testing approaches are too late, too heavy, and too slow, and the later you start load testing, the more difficult, time-consuming, and costly it is to debug and resolve performance problems. Developers and testers need a way to expose critical performance issues earlier in the delivery pipeline. Kevin will show you how this is being accomplished in high-performing organizations. You'll learn how you can make load testing faster and simpler, so performance issues are exposed to your testers—not to your users.
