Performance Engineering

Loadspeed and downtime affect your bottom line: if your site is running slow or your system is down, you’re losing money.

Load tests enable you to determine the minimum hardware needed to support your operations, how fast system elements perform under different workloads and if your system meets your key performance criteria.

It’s easy to see that the more successful your applications are, the more successful your business will be.

Our team of highly experienced and skilled testers can help you test the performance of your websites, APIs and mobile apps.


Performance Requirements

The first step for optimizing your systems is to understand them: knowing response and transaction times, resource consumption and load limits enables you to identify areas for improvement.

Gathering performance requirements happens in two stages: firstly, studying and understanding the workload specifics, and secondly, analyzing performance targets.

Workload represents the amount of transactions that need to be simultaneously processed or the amount of processing that is required. Performance targets represent the basic performance elements: response times, volume of throughput and resource utilization.


Performance Testing

The better the User Experience across your site and web apps, the greater the revenue generating potential.

The first step in the road toward optimizing performance is testing and gathering key performance metrics. These can be used to fine-tune the system and drive further improvements.

Testing will also identify bottlenecks that may be negatively impacting performance, such as poor database configuration. Plus, performance testing during the development phase will determine whether a new release is really production-ready. Finally, test results provide useful means of measuring performance against management and other key stakeholders’ expectations.


Troubleshooting & Tuning

Downtime is a huge headache for businesses of all sizes, affecting not only your short-term income but also impacting customer loyalty and market reputation, leading to lost opportunities and reduced staff morale.


System Monitoring

System Monitoring is critical to understanding and controlling the status of your servers, routers, applications and other critical aspects of your infrastructure in real time.

Abstracta‘s Approach




We analyze the balance between manual and automated testing. For instance, which areas can be tested automatically and which need to be tested manually, always trying to maximize the use of automation.

Tool Selection & Strategy


We evaluate which is the best tool to use for testing. This involves carefully analyzing the effort and costs involved in developing a custom-made testing tool, weighing the benefits it brings and its usage in the long-term.



Involves test definition, automation, infrastructure configuration and test execution.

Reporting & Monitoring


We generate reports, suggest improvements in the short, medium and long term regarding tuning, configuration, platform parameterization, architecture re-sizing and programming optimization.
