Queuing Theory & its Applications in Performance Testing
Mathematical Performance Evaluations Made Easy
This course is designed to introduce Queuing Theory principles to Performance Testers for easy & quick performance evaluation during performance testing. This course aims to provide a strong foundation on how to use mathematical principles to improve quality of your performance tests & accelerate performance problem analysis in strategic manner.
This course will bring in a practical view of how to use operational principles in performance testing with detailed case study illustrations & also shows how to build simple performance prediction models to handle day to day practical challenges during performance testing.
As the course details the queuing theory principles in simple performance testing language which can accelerate system performance analysis, the course targets to make Performance testers realize the difference in their thought process & acceleration during system performance, scalability & capacity analysis, irrespective of domain or performance testing tool.
This course will serve as the foundation course on Queuing Theory for taking up advanced performance
modelling or capacity planning courses.
The Target audience for this course includes Performance
Testers & Performance Engineers and other QA professionals interested in
mathematical system performance evaluation. This is an
Intermediate level course that elaborates how to perform mathematical performance evaluation using
Queuing Theory Principles, introducing you to Performance Modelling concepts.
In nutshell, this is a tool agnostic & domain agnostic course which deals with concepts & mathematical principles of Queuing Theory that can be applied for system performance evaluation during Performance Testing & for Performance Modelling.
