2.8 Performance Testing

Performance and capacity testing is critical for any system. The purpose of performance testing is to verify whether the system is able to meet the performance requirements, including number of transactions, on-line and batch processing, throughput and capacity. The emphasis is on verifying satisfaction of performance requirements and to ensure the system can handle stress and "worst case" scenarios. Performance testing, if required by client or user, or sponsor, commences on successful completion of system testing and addressing all high priority errors.
