The best practices highlighted in this blog, when properly used with the CloudTest service, can help to ensure that a load test can be performed successfully in the least amount of time. These help test for bottlenecks or possible performance degradation so that those issues can be addressed before the live event of an application. Using CloudTest with these best practices also relieves the burden of tooling and scripting, and minimizes the possibility of repeated tests due to problems with tooling or methodology.
