A Performance Engineer’s Toolbox

Updated: Apr 15, 2020

According to a performance research from DoubleClick, slow loading sites often results in reduced revenue. Therefore, successful companies integrated performance engineering in their development chain. They verify non-functional requirements early in the application lifecycle and monitor performance also at production. This post will outline tools and skills required for the former and the latter.

Skills

A performance specialist is technology-savvy and has hands-on experience in a broad range of load injection, tracing and supporting tools. Based on my knowledge, the most valuable skills of non-functional testing specialists are software development, a thorough understanding of modern technologies, real collaboration, and excellent problem analysis.
