Session: Hybrid Performance Testing – Does Render Time Matter?

Traditional load testing typically means testing the back-end application by simulating a request and measuring how long it takes to get the first byte and the last byte. Browser render time is not measured. Why not? Because render time can be impacted by the speed of the user’s computer or device, how many tabs are opened, IPS speed, and dozens of other factors. However, users care about their experience and not just about how the back-end application performs. With the advent of Single Page Applications, render time is even more critical. By incorporating hybrid testing, combining both traditional protocol based performance testing with real browsers, you’ll measure the entire user experience to gain a real-world view of how users experience your application. Join Lawrence to learn why both back-end and front-end browser testing are required to fully understand an application’s performance.

Session Takeaways:

  • Learn how to setup and configure a holistic performance test.
  • Understand your application’s performance more clearly when you do both front-end and back-end testing.
  • Review 2 different real examples with 2 different load testing tools of how this can be setup and executed.
