Testing Money Transactions
      #716703 - 09/19/12 03:04 PM

Our company, is much like a credit card company, just for smaller businesses. They pay us, we give them a bunch of cards and authorize the transactions. Thats the basic idea.

We are finally big enough to where we need to start Performance testing. Really there is two kinds of testing

1. Website load testing making sure a bunch of users don't crash the site. Seems like any program out there does this testing

2. Test to see how many transactions at a time our system can handle. This is a big deal. I'm not sure how to Load/Stress test this with out breaking our production.
We run our system on a Unix/Linux environment. We have a back door way to simulate a transaction. Just not sure how to load test this?

Not sure what other Financial companies do with this type of testing?
