Inadequate load testing is a recipe for disaster for today’s networked  organisations that live or die by the quality and performance of their server based systems. Load testing is crucial to ensure that applications are reliable and responsive. It also provides vital information for capacity planning. This talk will provide an overview of the load/performance testing of modern IT systems, the challenges, pitfalls and key concepts.
