Performance Test Analysis & Troubleshooting Essentials

Duration : 2 days

Course Overview

Performance Testing is a specialized Non-Functional Testing which is required to certify the software system for Performance, Scalability, Capacity & Availability.

This program is designed for Performance Testers, who are already familiar with Performance Testing to get introduced to Performance Engineering fundamentals including performance test result analysis & troubleshooting techniques.

This workshop aims to teach Performance Engineering fundamentals, Queuing Theory basics, performance test result analysis & evaluation techniques and prevalent performance bottlenecks in various tiers of web system along with the best practices on Performance NFR management, Performance test strategy development, performance test environment setup and performance test reporting.

At the end of this course, performance testers will be aware of strategies to validate the performance NFRs provided by business, to recommend & design right type of performance tests, to effectively analyze & report the test observations, to identify performance bottleneck symptoms and performance failures during performance tests and to carryout performance lifecycle activities in strategic way.

You will receive the templates & checklists – Performance testing tool evaluation checklist, performance test plan, Performance test script review checklist, Performance test environment readiness checklist & Performance Test Report, which you can use in your projects.

Would strongly recommend taking our workshop on “Performance Testing Essentials”, if you don’t have beginner level knowledge on Performance Testing & HP LoadRunner tool in order to meet the prerequisites of this course.


Performance Testers, Performance Engineers, Performance Testing Consultants & Performance Test Managers.


This training is for Performance Testers who has basic knowledge about Performance Testing who want to learn more about performance test result analysis & troubleshooting performance bottlenecks during performance testing.

Participants are expected to have practical exposure in carrying out performance testing.
