Server details needed for Performance Testing
The IT people in my company has created a replica server of the live site that needs to be tested for performance. What are those factors that the load test result depends on? I need to make sure that load test results on the replica server shows exactly how the live site will behave under the same load.
It will be very difficult to list down all the factor's ! In a one line answer if you execute the performance tests similar to production environment (Like No.Of users, Think times, work load model etc) you will get the similar results and issues as well if any.
