This document is intended for performance test automation engineers who are developing load testing scenarios. Introduction to Load Testing Scenarios Modern system architectures are complex. While they provide an unprecedented degree of power and flexibility, these systems are difficult to test. Whereas single-user testing focuses primarily on the functionality and the user interface of a system component, application testing focuses on the performance and reliability of an entire system. For example, a typical application testing scenario might depict a thousand users that log in simultaneously to a system on Monday morning. What is the response time of the system? Does the system crash? To be able to answer these questions and more, a complete application performance testing solution must do the following: • Test a system that combines a variety of software applications and hardware platforms • Determine the suitability of a server for any given application
