    Load and Performance Testing Services

    Leverage skilled software engineers, advanced tools, and years of experience to pinpoint specific performance issues, optimize resource utilization, and ensure that your application delivers a seamless and efficient user experience, even under peak load conditions. iBeta’s load and performance testing services help in identifying the maximum operating capacity of an application, as well as any issues that need to be addressed to prevent potential downtimes.

    Load and performance testing are crucial services to ensure that websites, mobile applications, and other software systems can handle the expected volume of users and transactions without compromising on speed or user experience. During load testing, engineers simulate a high number of users accessing the application simultaneously to assess how the system handles increased load, identifying bottlenecks and performance degradation points. Performance testing, on the other hand, evaluates the speed, responsiveness, and stability of the application under a variety of conditions.

    Load Testing Mobile Applications Case Study

    A client created an application for managing statewide childcare entitlements and needed to verify that it met state-mandated specifications. This required the simulation of more than 4000 mobile devices to check children in and out of daycare, conduct daily administrative activities, and keep records of all interactions for later reporting.

    We worked with developers to create the use cases, code them, and execute them as part of test scenarios. We also did a data load to simulate one year of operation for roughly 100k families.

    We found a series of issues with load balancing, server instance provisioning (specifically, fewer CPUs provisioned than had been planned with an attendant reduction in capacity), and user access (users were looking through much more data than necessary).

    The final version of the system exceeded all specifications and could handle up to 30,000 children being actively checked in and out of daycare in addition to 4000+ staff users conducting day-to-day operations.

    Load and Performance Testing Pricing

    The cost of load and performance testing services depends on project intricacy, duration, and specific testing needs. Most load and performance projects are priced on an hourly basis based on a customized scope. iBeta also offers some fixed-price packages for simpler websites.

    How Long Does Load and Performance Testing Take?

    The turnaround time for load and performance testing projects will vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the application, the complexity of the simulated user flows, and the expected volume of traffic. For simpler websites iBeta offers performance scan packages with fast turnaround times:


    Quick Scan

    The Quick Scan package performs web page retrieval at gradually increasing load levels to evaluate system scalability. The Quick Scan takes two days to complete.


    Basic Scan

    The Basic Scan package performs web page retrieval at gradually increasing load levels to evaluate system scalability, plus it also includes user registration and login scripting. A Basic Scan takes three days to complete.


    E-Commerce Scan

    An e-commerce performance scan measures web page retrieval rates at gradually increasing load levels to evaluate system scalability as well as user registration, login scripting, and scripting for shopping cart flow processing. E-Commerce Scans take five days to complete.
