Performance testing does no longer purpose to search out defects in the utility; it addresses somewhat more relevant project of trying out the benchmark and standard set for the application. Accuracy and close monitoring of the performance and results of the test are the essential characteristics of performance testing. A performance tester has in-depth potential in any one technological or industry practice / functional area and overview of 2-3 different areas. He must manage solution definition/ fitment for a small sized project with a medium complexity. He must be capable of building a customized function Module with common complexity program logic.

A performance tester is accountable for managing a small workforce of interpreters, developers, validators or engineers and accelerate the performance of a tiny module within a project (Delivery/ Maintenance/ Testing) he could serve as entry level specialist with potential in particular technology/industry domain/a procedure/ application / product. He’s responsible for the functional technical track of a project.


Performance Tester or Performance Test Engineer is the central resource for any performance testing projects. They’re the building blocks for the project.

Performance tester’s Skills Required:

  • working out the non-functional necessities from business
  • analyzing the vital industry scenarios
  • Explaining the service level agreement objectives
  • Developing the test scripts
  • improving the characters by creating/implementing
  • Parameterization
  • Checkpoints
  • Transactions
  • Reusable functions
  • Correlations
  • Actions/Blocks
  • Iterations
  • Pacing
  • Think Time
  • Designing workload model
  • Test Execution
  • Test Monitoring
  • Analyzing the test results
  • Preparing the test report

Performance tester’s Responsibilities:

  • Collects non-practical requisites and convert them into performance test plans.
  • Create and execute performance test procedure
  • Develops data-driven performance test scripts to help validate the performance of applications/ products based on the specifications.
  • Skilled with HP Performance Hub and various comparable performance test devices to outline and perform performance tests toward Applications with a multi-tier structure.
  • Analyzes the data collected from performance tests with a sight towards application performance, availability and capability of the purposes of securing the optimal user participation and diminishing hardware costs.

Least Essentials of a Performance Tester:

  • Expertise operating on performance testing and engineering of large-scale web applications.
  • Experience on any performance testing tool (HP Performance Center, Jmeter, VSTS, etc.).
  • Experience with performance monitoring tools.
  • Experience with diagnostics tools to identify cause like Dynatrace, HP diagnostics.
  • Experience with performance testing JVM-based applications.
  • Extensive understanding of Java programming language and design models from a performance point of way.
  • Expertise in both Windows and UNIX environments.

In the world of performance testing is important to comprehend the quite a lot of forms of testing, what they encompass and how they can benefit your applications.  Just as carpenters need the right instruments to build a house, performance testers want the correct experiment to analyze web performance accurately.
