Soak Testing

Soak Testing as a component of Load Testing, is the simulation of an application being under constant load for a longer period of time. Soak testing is useful to identify things like memory leaks, lack of log rotation, incremental id scarcity, storage exhaustion and other associated resource management problems.

As part of its Performance and Load Testing services Pipe Ten can help you implement and explore soak testing at resource, software and application levels.
