Load testing is the process of putting demand on a software system or computing device and measuring its response. Load testing is performed to determine a system's behavior under both normal and anticipated peak load conditions. It helps to identify the maximum operating capacity of an application as well as any bottlenecks and determine which element is causing degradation. When the load placed on the system is raised beyond normal usage patterns to test the system's response at unusually high or peak loads, it is known as stress testing. The load is usually so great that error conditions are the expected result, but there is no clear boundary when an activity ceases to be a load test and becomes a stress test.

  • Load testing is the process of putting demand on a software system or computing device and measuring its response. Load testing is performed to determine a system's behavior under both normal and anticipated peak load conditions. It helps to identify the maximum operating capacity of an application as well as any bottlenecks and determine which element is causing degradation. When the load placed on the system is raised beyond normal usage patterns to test the system's response at unusually high or peak loads, it is known as stress testing. The load is usually so great that error conditions are the expected result, but there is no clear boundary when an activity ceases to be a load test and becomes a stress test. There is little agreement on what the specific goals of load testing are.[citation needed] The term is often used synonymously with concurrency testing, software performance testing, reliability testing, and volume testing. Load testing is usually a type of non-functional testing, but it can be used as a functional test to validate suitability for use. (en)
  • Нагрузочное тестирование (англ. load testing) — подвид тестирования производительности, сбор показателей и определение производительности и времени отклика программно-технической системы или устройства в ответ на внешний запрос с целью установления соответствия требованиям, предъявляемым к данной системе (устройству).Для исследования времени отклика системы на высоких или пиковых нагрузках производится стресс-тестирование, при котором создаваемая на систему нагрузка превышает нормальные сценарии её использования. Не существует чёткой границы между нагрузочным и стресс-тестированием, однако эти понятия не стоит смешивать, так как эти виды тестирования отвечают на разные бизнес-вопросы и используют различную методологию.
