Patrick Lightbody, Director of Product Management at Neustar, discusses load testing in his blog post at Circle ID.
“At its core, load testing is nothing more than ensuring your online presence is ready for the number of visitors you expect. It’s simple to explain, but historically it’s been anything but simple, or easy to afford. Typically load testing was priced according to the number of concurrent visitors you wanted to simulate, and the more traffic you simulated the more the price went up. However the reality was the cost of the test to the provider didn’t increase nearly as much as the cost presented to the customer. There was a big markup for large tests.”
