1

What's LR used for?

To test the load and performance test the client/server and web applications

2

What LR does?

it identifies how the application performs when multiple users access it

3

What LR simulates?

It simulates multiple transactions from the same machine and it creates simultaneous access to application

4

What's a scenario?

A series of action that need to be tested

5

Virtual User are called

Vusers

6

What Vuser does?

it submits the requests to the server

7

What's Vuser script

Vuser script describes the actions performed by a virtual user

8

What are the divisions of Vuser script?

Vuser_int, Actions and Vuser_end

9

What is Vuser_int?

The actions under Vuser_int will be performed when the Vuser is loaded or initialized

10

What is Actions?

The actions under Actions will be performed when the Vuser is in Running state

11

What is Vuser_end?

The actions under Vuser_end will be performed when the Vuser finishes or stops

12

What's transaction time?

Transaction time indicates the time taken by the server to respond to a request made by the client.

13

What are rendezvous points?

Multiple users are made to perform the same task exactly at the same time. Rendezvous means meeting point

14

What the performance test gives the report of?

Performance test report gives the various performance parameters such as average transaction time, throughput, hits per second, memory and cpu utilization etc.

15

What are the areas of work that you have done in performance testing?

Other than scripting, i have done pretty much everything starting with working closely with a performance tester, helped prepare performance strategy, plan, identify the scenarios needed to be tested, running the test, producing performance reports

16

What are the roles you have performed in Performance Testing?

Performance Engineering Testing Service - Onsite Test Manager

17

What's load testing

load testing is a generic name for performance and stress testing

18

What's performance testing

Testing carried out for normal, peak, and exceptional load conditions

19

What's stress testing

Testing done at or beyond the limits of specified requirements of performance to check where the software fails
