Description

This ISTQB Foundation – Performance Tester Certificate training course offers an introduction to the fundamentals of Software Performance Testing.  

Performance efficiency (or simply “performance”) is an essential part of providing a
“good experience” for users when they use their applications on a variety of fixed
and mobile platforms. Performance testing plays a critical role in establishing
acceptable quality levels for the end user and is often closely integrated with other
disciplines such as usability engineering and performance engineering.

Business Objectives

  • Understand the basic concepts of performance efficiency and performance testing.

  • Define performance risks, goals, and requirements to meet stakeholder needs and expectations.

  • Understand performance metrics and how to collect them.

  • Develop a performance test plan for achieving stated goals and requirements.

  • Conceptually design, implement, and execute basic performance tests.

  • Analyze the results of a performance test and state implications to various stakeholders.

  • Explain the process, rationale, results, and implications of performance testing to various stakeholders.

  • Understand categories and uses for performance tools and criteria for their selection.

  • Determine how performance testing activities align with the software lifecycle.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the principles of performance testing.
    Recognize the different types of performance testing.

  • Recall testing types in performance testing.
    Understand the concept of load generation.

  • Give examples of common failure modes of performance testing and their causes.

  • Understand the typical metrics collected in performance testing.

  • Explain why results from performance testing are aggregated.

  • Understand the key sources of performance metrics.

  • Recall the typical results of a performance test.

  • Understand the principal performance testing activities.

  • Explain typical categories of performance risks for different architectures.

  • Analyze performance risks for a given product across the software development lifecycle.

  • Analyze a given project to determine the appropriate performance testing activities for each phase of the software lifecycle.

  • Derive performance test objectives from relevant information.

  • Outline a performance test plan which considers the performance test objectives for a given project.

  • Create a presentation that enables various stakeholders to understand the rationale behind the planned performance testing.

  • Give examples of typical protocols encountered in performance testing.

  • Understand the concept of transactions in performance testing.

  • Analyze operational profiles for system usage.

  • Create load profiles derived from operational profiles for given performance objectives.

  • Analyze throughput and concurrency when developing performance tests.

  • Understand the basic structure of a performance test script.

  • Implement performance test scripts consistent with the plan and load profiles.

  • Understand the activities involved in preparing for performance test execution.

  • Understand the principal activities in running performance test scripts.

  • Analyze and report performance test results and implications.

  • Understand how tools support performance testing.

  • Evaluate the suitability of performance testing tools in a given project scenario.
