What is TrafficSpike?
TrafficSpike is a flexible performance testing tool capable of
simulating load ranging from a few hundred to hundreds of thousands
of concurrent users. It combines the expected functionality of
traditional load testing solutions with the speed, convenience and
cost saving opportunities of a cloud based service.
Who is it for?
Concerned about your website or application crumbling under a
sudden spike in traffic, perhaps upon the release of a new product
or during a huge sales push? Or do you simply need to know how it
will cope under heavy load? If you website is business critical,
such as in the case of any eCommerce site, the answer should be
yes; Website failure typically occurs abruptly and
catastrophically, and by definition at times when you are most in
demand. Slow or badly performing websites have the effect of
sending your potential sales away for good, directly to your
competitors, and ultimately can devastate the bottom line.
TrafficSpike is an affordable solution for accurately testing how
you website will stand up at its most critical moments.
How does it work?
The TrafficSpike service, provided by Intechnica, is tailored
to the client's specific needs using a flexible Performance Testing
framework. Our experienced test consultants define a set of
appropriate test scenarios based on the specific needs of the
application being tested, before using TrafficSpike to demonstrate
and monitor the application's performance and stability under
varying levels of load, and over different time periods.
TrafficSpike includes a comprehensive reporting suite to provide
detailed analysis on existing performance problems and why they
occur, as well as the level of scalability in the
TrafficSpike is able to use several methods of delivery in
generating realistic load, from global cloud-based load through to
private datacentres and within a firewall itself; a combined
service offers full control and flexibility over performance
