This side of the matter bothers a client very much as this will directly affect the number of users. So, a test procedure should obligatory include such checking types as performance, as well as load testing.
Now it is time to consider some mostly used website tools for the performance, load, and scalability testing execution.
Mostly Widespread Website Tools Are:
- GTmetrix – useful partially-free tool which not only analyzes the performance and speed of the website but also provides some optimization solutions.
- Site-Perf – provides data on the website availability and how fast it loads in different corners of the world.
- Gomez Networks – free website and also mobile performance test tool which may represent the comparison characteristics of the competitors in a certain field.
- WebToolHub – helps to define the basic page speed test through the website capacity to load with the various Internet users and different speed connections.
- OctaGate – determines how fast the website loads, provides advice on the optimization, and describes the causes which slow the load speed.
