Learn More About Performance Testing Tools

What are Performance Testing Tools?

Performance testing tools address application and system design issues by testing reliability and scalability. Unlike bug testing tools, performance testing tools establish a performance baseline and then attempt to discover bottlenecks by adding stress. Specific tests include load tests, soak or endurance tests, spike tests, and others.


The goal of performance testing apps is to establish benchmarks for a target system. A target might be a web app, a server or group of servers, or a whole network. Performance tests can be monitored in real-time for test validity. Results should supply root cause analysis and locate bottlenecks. Additionally, performance test tools evaluate SLA compliance and provide an overall view of system resilience.

Performance Testing Tools Features & Capabilities

Performance testing tools are designed to apply the below capabilities to targets such as servers, groups of servers, web applications, and network devices.


  • Test scenario creation

  • Load generation & virtual user simulation

  • Test environment monitoring, validation

  • Real-time test monitoring dashboard

  • Automated test data collection

  • Test result presentation, interpretation

  • Correlation, parameterization

  • Bottleneck identification

  • IDE integration

  • APM integration

  • Predictive capability

  • SLA baseline setting

  • Software release risk reduction

Pricing Information

Free performance testing tools are available as well as free trials for paid platforms. Most testing tools are priced according to the number of virtual users available for a testing scenario. Additionally testing legacy systems or varied and sophisticated systems can increase cost. Number of tests to be conducted, the type of test, and reporting capabilities often do not influence price.
