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.
