Advantages of Load Testing….

  1. Issues related to performance and bottlenecks could be identified before production
  2. The system’s scalability is improved in terms of database, software, network etc.
  3. There is the minimization of the risk associated with downtime of the application/system
  4. The cost of failure is reduced and the satisfaction of the customer is increased

Disadvantages of Load Testing….

  1. Testers need knowledge of tools and in some complex cases, the programming languages to perform load testing
  2. There is a significant cost associated with load testing as tools may be expensive, additional resources with special knowledge of the testing tools may be required
