What's Load/Volume Test

Load/volume tests study how a program handles large amounts of data, excessive calculations, and excessive processing. These tests do not necessarily have to push or exceed upper functional limits. Load/volume tests can, and usually must, be automated.

Focus of Load/Volume Tesing

  • Pushing through large amounts of data with extreme processing demands.
  • Requesting many processes simulateously.
  • Repeating tasks over a long period of time

Load/volume tests, which involve extreme conditions, are normally run after the execution of feature-level tests, which prove that a program functions correctly under normal conditions.
