Hammer Tests have little or no resemblance to real-world distributions and user communities. These test take all existing load generation scripts and methods, eliminate user think times and increase load until failure occurs. These tests are designed to make the system fail. Once failures occur, mitigation strategies can be determined. These tests are generally only executed after several rounds of tuning. There are no pass/fail criteria for hammer tests as the intent is to find the break points and develop risk mitigation strategies from those break points.
