A large global bank re-engineered its older batch application
for mutual funds, into a more distributed and inter-active
application involving a large number of concurrent users.
The challenge was
(a) to model the expected system response, when the normal
/ average number of users are logged into the system and are
performing their normal tasks like navigation, additions,
deletions, updates, etc; and,
(b) to simulate the behavior of the system upon application
of pre-determined overload conditions in the test environment
and study the degradation in performance of the application.
Thinksoft's Performance Test Group studied the functionality
of the application, mapped the navigation paths, work flow
patterns and expected User Interaction with the system, determined
expected loads and used an automated tool to stress test the
system for load and data scalability.
" I would like to place on record my appreciation
your group for making a success of this." -
