The objective of performance testing is to examine the characteristics of a proposed solution when evaluated by a human. We all know what a performance test of a car looks like when viewed on TV and there are similarities with this and your project. You are trying to achieve a repeatable test, very like the circuit testing of a vehicle. You are also trying to see how your system will perform under normal conditions, a casual drive round the circuit. However, you are also trying to understand what happens when peak or exceptional conditions are applied to record how your system copes with this. This latter type of test is often called a load test.

Performance testing is a form of stress testing and you are trying to evaluate how your system will operate under certain conditions without breaking.
