Volume or stress testing
Volume testing is a type of software testing, where the software is subject to a large volume of data. It is also known as a flood test. Volume tests are performed to analyze system performance by increasing the volume of data in the database.
Why is it important
A volume test can help you:
• Verify system performance with increasing volumes of data in the database
• Identify the problem that is likely to occur with a large amount of data
• Find out the point at which system stability degrades
• Volume testing will help identify the capacity of the system or application: normal and heavy volume
