Performance testing

During my daily business I am often confronted with the topic “performance”, but sadly not that often with “performance test”. Like the common admin-quote “Noone wants backup, everyone wants restore” I could say “Noone pays for performance benchmarking and optimization, but everyone wants to have a fast website”.

The fact, that performance testing is often postponed in project plans, has 2 common sources: Either performance is considered as second-class citizen in a project, which is always overruled by his cousin “functional testing”. Or noone knows how to do proper performance testing, and everyone decides, that ignoring this topic makes it go away. Nice try …

For this reason I decided to write a small article series about performance testing. In this page I want to collect the links, so you have a comprehensive list.
