Performance testing done right (17:30 - 18:20 on Tuesday)

Jiří HolušaMr. Quality

Everybody says that they do performance testing. But do you do it right? Are you sure that the interpretation of the numbers, or even the number themselves, has really something to do with the truth? In this talk we will identify some of the common bad practices and mistakes while doing performance testing. We will try to answer questions like: * What is the difference between latency and throughput testing and what to be careful about? * Am I using the right number of stressors during the test? * How to compare two performance results? * How do I prevent performance regression from happening? * ... and more. Join me to the session of charts, numbers and performance fun!
