A place to discuss stress testing.
Stress testing is testing that ensures the system performs as expected under a high volume of transactions, high number of users, and so on. Also referred to as load testing. (Source: Object Testing Patterns)
Load Testing and Volume Testing are types of Stress Testing
Things to consider during load testing:
...logs into the network at the same time.
...gets into the application at the same time.
...runs the same test scripts.
...hits save simultaneously.
...does a heavy refresh simultaneously.
...tries to edit the same record simultaneously.
...runs a variety of queries simultaneously.
...starts a difficult search simultaneously.
...tries to list many items simultaneously.
