Volume Testing

Volume Testing

Volume Test is used to test large number of data populating in database for a period of time or for a particulate time. And check if the application is able to handle the volume of data getting loaded into the application. And also see the overall application behavior is monitored. So the objective is to check software application's performance under varying database/batch volumes.

Need for Volume Testing.

  • Volume Testing is done to check if the application can handle large data loading into the database.
  • So will test how will behaviors during the test.
  • Handling of large data loading into the database.
  • And also the utilization of CPU and memory resources.

Difference between volume and load testing?

Volume Test :

  • Volume Test is used to test large number of data populating in database for a period of time or for a particulate time.
  • And check if the application is able to handle the volume of data getting loaded into the application.
  • So large data will be loaded into the application.

Load Testing :

  • And load Testing is to test the system behavior under normal workload conditions, and it is just testing or simulating with the actual workload.
  • So the load Testing will not be tested with loading of data into database.

Tools recommended for Volume Test in performance testing.
