Get your websites and apps load-tested for surging holiday traffic

Are your shopping apps and ecommerce websites load-tested to handle traffic surges? Qapitol QA can help.

Any breakage in your apps or websites due to user overload can be embarrassing and results in revenue loss for the company. Don’t let your brand get impacted due to the unpredictable performance of your websites and business apps. To offset any such bad experiences from happening, your ecommerce sites and apps must be architected to scale with increasing online loads and user volumes. This demands that all the functional components are integrated and tested for peak traffic performance.

Performance testing for ecommerce websites & apps

The ecommerce website is a complex web of components, including integrations with several external applications such as payment gateways, logistics apps etc. To make sure that the website performs efficiently in peak times, several testing strategies must be put together. Some of the methods are presented here:

To get a complete overview of the website performance, you need to understand the user interactions, system integrations, functional and technical behaviors etc. Here are some pointers to consider:

  • historical data and trends
  • overall traffic patterns
  • shopping vs.browsing patterns
  • average time a user spends on the site
  • average view per minute/hour
  • average orders placed per minute/hour
  • points of cart abandonment
  • flow of traffic from mobile devices etc.

Some of the activities that help in recognizing and fixing performance issues:

  • Code review: finding defects that cause performance and stability issues
  • Load testing: mimicking real life traffic and determining maximum user thresholds
  • Tuning: Refining the configurations of hardware, OS, middleware, firewalls etc.
  • Scalability: sizing up the environment, hardware, configurations, load balancing measures, capacity planning

Some of the key business processes and functional components that need extra focus on testing:

  • Promotions: previewing offers, turning on and turning off the features
  • Pricing: correct display of full prices, discounted prices
  • Top search items: optimizing the online catalog and gift assortments
  • Navigational paths: helping users to find products using sorting rules
  • Search refinements: for narrowing down searches
  • Product details: for accuracy, clarity, and order distribution
  • Decision making: warranty, key product details, size and color, images, pricing
  • Checkout: saving items to wish lists, extending cart life cycle, enabling return visits
  • Customer service: promotions, merchandising, out of stock concerns, contacts
  • Remote usability: user-friendliness, navigation experiences, optimizations
  • Technical: security, omni-channel availability, integrations, capacity planning, memory leaks, content caching, backend, downtime redundancy, firewalls etc.

Analytics and insights that will help you assess and fix performance issues

  • Application glitches: inefficient code, syncing issues, memory leaks, app deadlocks
  • Database performance: locking & contention, missing indexes, inefficient queries, data
  • Configurations: environment variations, device optimizations
  • Load handling: algorithms tracking unused features for load balancing
  • Connectivity issues: bandwidth, firewall capacity, varying mobile networks
  • Bandwidth capacity: application loads, bandwidth scaling, connection types/speeds
  • Architecture: technology choices, scalability, analytics, gateways, content, channels

Leverage any of the following open source and proprietary tools for load testing and stress testing: WebLoad, LoadComplete, HP LoadRunner, Rational Performance Tester, NeoLoad, Loadster, CloudTest, Jmeter etc.
