Volume Testing for SAP Solutions - Generic Procedure
The goal of volume testing is to run a realistic simulation of expected workload during the implementation period of an IT solution. This simulation tests the solution's performance, sizing and scalability. Specifically, it focuses on runtimes and data throughput for critical business process paths and interacting components. This Best Practice describes, independently of the application subject to volume testing, a generic procedure how to plan, execute, and evaluate volume tests.
