Measuring the performance of an application is critical to business expansion and growth. One of the ways to achieve this is through load and performance tests. Load Testing ensures that your application can perform as expected in production. Just because your application will pass a functional test, this does not mean that it can perform the same under a load. Load testing identifies where and when your application breaks, so you can fix the issue before shipping to production.
