During this presentation, we aim to study what is performance testing, what types of performance testing we can do, how can we do them, what kind of parameters should we study/monitor during a performance testing session and what performance problems can arise.

We will learn about the performance testing process and be demonstrating several test cases in a live session specifically designed to study the performance of a dummy application that runs on the most common Http based web servers (APACHE vs NGINX)

🐞 Agenda:
- What is performance testing
- Why do we want to do it
- When can we do it
- What does it study
- Common challenges
- Real Test Cases
- Metrics
