    Re: stress testing for desktop application

    You will only be able to perform load testing on a desktop app if it is multi-threaded. For single threaded apps it's not possible. When you are performing load testing the goal is to load the server/app with requests and then measure the performance of a single operation. Measuring the time to perform operations includes testing a variety of inputs.....minimum, expected and high and by definition is 'pure' performance testing. This is why load testing is only possible with a multi-threaded app in which operations can be performed at the same time.
    Reserve a few months every so often and preview retirement throughout your career. You won't regret that a 35 year career was reduced to 34 years to take vacations measured in months in order to remember what a stress and care-free life is all about.

    Books and hard work will get you anywhere you want to go.

    Re: stress testing for desktop application

    Have you found out which protocol your desktop application uses to communicate with the server(s)?

    Re: stress testing for desktop application

    Do you want to load test the desktop app itself or a database backend/server connection/backoffice connector?

    A normal desktop app like Word or Excel is only used by one user at a time, so there is no need for _load_ testing.
