Hybrid Performance Testing: Does Render Time Matter?

Traditional load testing typically means testing the back-end application by simulating a request and measuring how long it takes to get the first byte and the last byte. Browser render time is not measured, because it is impacted by the speed of the user’s computer or device is and how many tabs are opened. However, users care about their experience and not how the back-end application perform.  Join Lawrence to learn why both back-end and front-end browser testing are required to fully understand an application’s performance.  Learn how to setup and configure a holistic performance test and what you will discover about your application’s performance when you do both front-end and back-end testing. With the advent of Single Page Applications, render time is even more critical. By incorporating hybrid testing, combining both traditional protocol based performance testing with real browsers, you’ll measure user experience to gain a real-world view of user experience.
