 Testing of an Appln Server/Appln/Architecture is with
relation to the following:
 The basic test with respect to performance consist of
using a "Controller"(A program which fires Virtual
Users In a random/Deterministic Order) to bombard the

 If the scenarion choosen is a usual day-of-work
scenario then think time(Time between any two
consecutive Iterations) is deterministic and a finitie

 To stress the Server and System Architecuture we
perform BreakDown tests as part of PErformance
Testing. A Performance Test which is also a Break Down
test with "0" time between two user requests is called
a "Zero Think Time" test.  Unless the app/app
server/system under test(SUT) is capable of scaling to
this workload it will misbehave/crash/core-dump in a
plethora of ways.
