Spike Testing

Spike testing refers to the process of performance evaluation of a web page in the event of unexpected traffic on it. In many cases, it is observed that when there is a sudden increase in the number of visitors accessing a particular page, its performance breaks down. This is taken care of by spike testing which is primarily used in performance and load checking. They are usually based on projected or real world workloads and the focus lies in extreme performance or load conditions. These tests are perfect for indicating whether the system has the capability of handling unexpected loads of connections and users. They are also adept at pointing out the existing limitations in the context of the present operational environment.

The demand for web applications differ for a number of reasons. Some are time-related and predictable such as 'the time of day' or a seasonal change in demand. There are others which are event driven and predictable like the launch of a website service or new product or moving to a virtual infrastructure. There are also those which are hard to predict like the interest spawned from the news media. Our spike testing services can comfortably address all these causes and ensure that all kinds of performance issues are detected and rectified before the demand.

Many organizations lack the capability to perform spike testing either because they are not equipped with the proper load checking tools or do not possess skilled specialists needed for the job. We can come to their rescue since we boast of professional testing experts as well as adequate tools required for the purpose.

There are also companies which, in spite of having their in-house performance checking solution, look for professional spike test service because their load examining solutions are often restricted by the number of users that can be simulated for checking purposes. We are a reputed name in this area to provide an extremely cost-effective spike testing solutions to tailor your needs.
