Aspect: Evaluate System

The Evaluate System aspect the performance testing project is the initial, detail-oriented, phase. This aspect can be thought of as the evaluation of the project and system context. The intent is to collect information about the project as a whole, the functions of the system, the expected user activities, the system architecture and any other details that are helpful in creating a Performance Testing Strategy specific to the needs of the particular project. Starting with this information, the performance requirements are collected and/or determined then validated with project stakeholders. Once the performance requirements (system performance acceptance criteria) are validated, a detailed usage model is developed and validated. The usage model depicts how often what number of users perform which system activities. The final activity in this aspect is to determine the potential risks of the performance testing project based on the overall evaluation.
