Stress Testing


Stress Testing is a form of testing which purposely attempts to identify the weakest link of a system. Stress testing will seek to verify that, following any abnormal conditions, the system can revert quickly to normal operation. Such conditions might include : data processing immediately after system downtime, after a network failure, or during peak activity periods.
