Load & Performance Testing for Parasoft SOAtest

Load and Performance Testing

Unlock Early Stage Load & Performance Testing by Using Your Existing Functional Tests

Parasoft SOAtest’s load and performance testing module, Parasoft Load Test, enables users to take SOAtest functional test projects and leverage them for performance testing with ease. With an intuitive user interface that makes common configurations easy, a scripting extension makes extending custom functionality a breeze. The Load Test Continuum (LTC) web-based reporting app makes it easy to make performance testing a part of the CI/CD process to efficiently implement performance test automation.

How Does It Work?

Take an existing SOAtest project that you built for API and/or web testing, and with a few clicks, you can construct and run a performance test based on it, enabling a true shift-left testing strategy by facilitating early stage testing performance testing as soon as the interfaces available. You can then create rich multi-profile performance test scenarios to further scale your performance testing solution across multiple machines. Parasoft makes this process easy by automatically transferring the Load Test project, the SOAtest project, and its dependencies (for example external data sources) to remote machines.

Once a performance test run is complete, you can examine its results in custom reports that you can configure to record whatever level of detail suits your needs, from high level filterable statistics tables to individual ‘hit’ details with their request and response traffic.

A range of built-in monitors are available for diagnosing performance problems, including integrations with major application performance management systems, such as AppDynamics and Dynatrace.


Benefit From the Parasoft Approach

Save Time Creating and Maintaining Test Scenarios

Instead of having to create different scenarios for functional tests and load tests, with Parasoft you can leverage the same scenarios for both functional and load tests, reducing the time it takes to create and maintain test scenarios.

Model the Behavior of Realistic User Scenarios

Visually diagram user profiles to match the realistic usage patterns of user stories, and apply specific load to those profiles to understand how specific user experiences will be impacted during the application’s times of heavy usage.

Automate Load Testing

Parasoft Load Test can be fully automated as part of your CI/CD pipeline. Its web-based reporting helps users understand the incremental impact of multiple performance tests by displaying trending information by project, component, API, etc. Users can also identify performance issues earlier by viewing historical trends that link performance tests to their initial requirements, to properly prioritize issues that arise.
