Performance testing is often a complex and time-consuming task. Setting up and monitoring of test environments, creating tests, and last but not least, analysing and reporting test results, require specialised performance testing consultants. While, in a continuous delivery world, teams would like to have continuous feedback on the performance of their application, performance tests are hard to scale due to this complexity.
With Perfana, every team integrates it’s own performance test into the CI/CD pipeline and gets it’s own performance testing dashboard. You can set performance KPI’s and thresholds yourself or you let Perfana do the number crunching and automatically set the baseline, determine the normal variation, detect outliers and alerts you when a new build deviates from the norm. It’s a unique approach called automated comparative performance validation which alleviates the need for a big complicated and therefore expensive setup as well as the need for scarce loadtesting consultants. Perfana let’s you scale and go to market as fast as possible while still keeping a tab on performance.
Perfana allows teams to validate the performance of their software not just before going to production, but with each and every build … effortlessly. Our plugin integrates with all popular CI servers and enables each team to validate the performance with every build or release.
Because … well, performance. Studies have shown that web-site performance is the number one factor in improving conversion. Investment in performance therefore has a direct and immediate return.
Perfana doesn’t simply test performance. It validates the latest performance test results against automatically set historic benchmarks and detects and flags deviations stopping the continuous deployment pipeline.
