Each project, especially web shops and sites that generate a lot of traffic, requires constant development to ensure conversion growth assurance and to adapt to market demands. These entail code changing and website dependencies. The effects must be constantly monitored and verified to ensure the highest performance.
The efficiency of solutions is tested separately. Functional testing allows us to confirm whether the web shop functions according to the specifications. Efficiency tests evaluate whether the website is able to deal with the estimated traffic. Is it worth running efficiency tests? Yes, because the traffic to your site might rapidly increase. Our meticulously planned web campaigns with AdWords or site positioning on web engines via SEO can directly result in increasing the number of users and traffic volume. Without testing the efficiency, abnormal site functioning may result causing a loss of users and a decline in revenue.
Establishing the maximum traffic volume that web shop is likely to manage
Checking if the server response time is at an acceptable level
Finding the bottlenecks that may possibly overload the site
Pointing out the areas for improvement and optimization
Verifying whether modifications influence efficiency
Verifying the web application’s compliance with your requirements
We perform efficiency tests on our solutions with JMeter, one of the most popular testing tools. . This allows us to run random traffic simulations. JMeter allows various test configurations to r approximate to real life traffic. When considering efficiency tests, Media4U starts with a deep analysis of the solution. Using Google Analytics, we can see real time traffic, specific users behavior and the percentage of users who placed orders. Thanks to this information we are able to properly configure the user groups so that they reflect the real customers during efficiency tests.
