Verification of the performance of the application made available to users distributed around the world.
Application users are located in 23 locations on several continents. In addition, the client’s needs included continuous monitoring of “application health” and performance of the response to requests. The application used by the client was the work of an external supplier, who did not provide authentication information to the internal technical user.
The results of the tests allowed to improve the information exchanged between clients and the server. The “batch” processes were improved, bottlenecks resulting from the sharing of server resources were eliminated, the database structure was optimized. Problems with the Content Delivery Network were eliminated and a negligible impact of the global network in most locations was estimated. The technical user’s password could not be disclosed/frapped due to legal conditions, the solution was to combine a performance tool with an automatic one, which simulated the user’s actions at the GUI level not at the server query level.

Preparation and execution of performance and overload tests together with a report containing interpretation of results and recommendations.
Within the framework of the project, a proprietary platform was created to monitor individual locations and their health status, including the collection of archival data. The application was available through the website communicating with individual agents through the Web Service
