Baseline Testing

Baseline Testing

Baseline testing has two primary purposes

 First, initial tests ensure that there are no external factors, such as network or server bottlenecks, that could affect the results of further testing

 Second, baseline application testing provides a set of performance results that can be used as a basis for comparison with the actual benchmark testing

 All of the baseline tests should be executed with "Ignore Think Time" option in Load Runner. This option specifies that the test scripts are executed with no think time between user transactions (i.e., as soon as response is received by a virtual user, the next request is sent to the server). This enables baseline tests to focus on the performance of the network, application server and the portal framework without simulating realistic end user behavior
