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.

Test Results Comparison - See the Performance Impact of Each Code Change

Posted by Product Update on Jan 15, 2016 1:32:34 PM
 
Establishing a performance baseline is critical to being able to effectively manage the performance of your applications over time. If there's no baseline, it's a lot more difficult to discern the performance impact of any given code change or release.
