400,000 Users Simulation To Address Azure Performance

azure performance

In this project, Testhouse focused on ensuring optimal performance for an online evaluation system hosted on Azure. Our goal was to identify and address potential performance bottlenecks to guarantee a smooth and efficient user experience for the system’s users.

Azure Performance Bottlenecks

Problem Statement

  • Defining Performance Metrics: Defining appropriate performance metrics for effective system testing was a concern, leading to delays in the testing process and inaccurate results.
  • Difficulty Simulating Real-World User Behavior: The customer’s online evaluation system had difficulties simulating real-world user behaviour and traffic patterns, making it challenging to identify the point at which the system became overwhelmed, leading to performance issues.
  • Complex Configurations and Setups: The online evaluation system had different configurations and setups based on various scenarios, making it challenging to set up the testing environment accurately.
  • Significant Load Anticipated: Load testing was crucial as the system was expected to handle a high load, with 400,000 students anticipated to take an online exam.

Solutions

  • Test Strategy and Test Plan: Testhouse defined a comprehensive Test Strategy and prepared a detailed Test Plan specifically for load testing.
  • Performance Metrics Definition: Testhouse assisted the customer in defining performance metrics effectively. This included identifying key performance indicators, defining benchmarks, and establishing clear testing objectives.
  • Replication of System: Testhouse replicated the customer’s online evaluation system and established an identical testing environment for performance testing, ensuring accurate and reliable results.
  • Realistic User Behavior Scenarios: Testhouse created realistic user behavior scenarios to simulate real-world usage patterns. This helped identify potential performance issues and provided recommendations for improvement on the customer’s online evaluation system.

Benefits

  • Reduced Cost of Infrastructure: Optimized testing strategies and accurate results led to a reduction in the cost of infrastructure.
  • Improved Efficiency by 2x: Testing efficiency was improved significantly, doubling the rate of work completion.
  • Delivered in 4.5 Weeks: Despite the challenges, the project was delivered in a timely manner within 4.5 weeks, meeting the customer’s expectations and deadlines.
