What is really impactful to the user experience is the transaction time.
What really impacts the user experience is transaction time
In many cases, individual response time (per request) and average response time across all http requests are not very meaningful. What really impacts the user experience is the transaction time. Usually, this corresponds to the time spent loading a web page, i.e. a group of requests, or a group of logical steps that corresponds to a user click, or an end-to-end sequence. For example a transaction could be:

Modeling complex transactions just got easier
Worried about authentication flows in your load tests? Time-sensitive tokens? Unique parameters associated to requests? Headers and URL randomization? Worry no more.
Back in January, we predicted one of the major performance testing trends in 2016 would be a steadily increasing focus on mobile. So it might not come as a surprise that one of the latest major enhancements at Nouvola is more robust mobile performance testing.
As we’ve covered in previous posts, performance testing is different from functional testing, and therefore requires different criteria when setting goals, creating test plans, and evaluating results.
Often times, the degree of complexity in the workflow of a functional test is not required to create a meaningful performance test scenarios. The focus is not on what is working (or not), but how the load affects the system under test.
Still, there are several aspects that can play a crucial role when generating load, which necessarily require a certain complexity in performance testing scenarios.
How do I create a test?
It is very easy to create a test in Nouvola DiveCloud. No scripting is required, and you can build and run a test in less than five minutes. The test plan is a very simple form, pre-filled with recommended values, and suggestions on how to change them.
Loyal customers would be quick to move to a different product if your software fails under load. Today, performance testing is more important than ever.
When creating a performance test, one of the main challenges is having a single test representing the behavior of a group of real users. Real users take different actions and select different values and different assets as they interact with your software.
Our customers are often asking questions about the Nouvola product infrastructure and how it works. Since there are several recurring questions, we wanted to share the answers with all our readers.
