Imagine it's midnight and you're packaging up your web application. Upload it via FTP, run server updates, and manually execute SQL scripts to update the database schema. If something goes wrong, you might have to undo everything — step by step — and hope that you can revert the application to its prior state before morning. Fortunately, these late-night deployment processes are (mostly) gone and Agile deployment has taken its place.

Load testing is a critical part of the Agile development process. By identifying potential bottlenecks before deployments, you can help avoid costly downtime and poor user experiences. The challenge is converting the massive amount of data into tangible insights that developers can quickly use to make fixes. Take a look at three of the most important performance metrics to watch in your load tests and how to interpret them to diagnose bottlenecks in your application.

User experience is rapidly overtaking price and product as the most important brand differentiator. It’s no wonder: poor user experience can devastate a brand’s reputation. Load testing can help ensure a consistent and positive user experience by identifying performance bottlenecks before they impact users – and you. Most performance engineers are familiar with JMeter, the open-source load testing tool developed by the Apache Foundation.

We rely on APIs for critical aspects of our digital infrastructure. Much like the nails that connect and support a house's foundation, APIs ensure that the necessary parts of your digital network are connected. Understanding how they are behaving is vital to gain full visibility into the performance and availability of your digital assets.

We’ve all heard the stories about the overnight sensation that took decades to achieve. The “API Revolution” has that same feel to me. Some version of APIs has been at the heart of application development for many years, but as the web application world grew more and more connected and developers learned to leverage code built outside their own application, the API industry began to boom and flourish.
