What is Mobile Application Load Testing?

Mobile application testing for performance testing is not the same as traditional performance testing. Mobile is a whole new game and the testing requirements for all attributes are much steeper due to the unpredictability.

The purpose of load testing is to determine whether the application can maintain the required number of users with acceptable rejoinder times. The intention of propensity testing is to standard the maximum load of simultaneous users an application can sustain before experiencing system failure while the intention of stress testing is to validate an application’s constancy and dependability over an comprehensive period of time.

On the server side: we need to understand variations in response times, streaming resource intensive packets, delays in delivery of messages, application crashes etc.
On the client side: we need to address the usual discrepancy of application behavior on various platforms and handsets, memory and CPU consumption, loading speed and battery issues.

How to Test Mobile Application?

Performance test your mobile applications for a variety of mobile: Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry, etc. It's a key point to simulate mobile network speeds of mobile standards: GPRS, EDGE, UMTS (3G), HSDPA, HSPA+ and LTE.

  • Select right automation testing tool for the success of mobile application testing program:
    • The tool should support all desired platforms
    • The tool should support testing for various screen types, resolutions and input mechanism
    • The tool should be connected to the external system to carry out end-to-end testing
  • Use weighted device platform matrix method to identify the most critical hardware/platform combination to test.
  • Check the end-to-end functional flow in all possible platforms at least once.
  • Conduct performance testing, UI testing and compatibility testing using actual devices.
  • Measure performance only in realistic conditions of wireless traffic and maximum user load.

Because mobile devices usually access the network with lower bandwidth, setting the appropriate bandwidth is essential to realistically simulate mobile traffic.
