Spike Tests are tests that use real-world distributions and user communities, but under extremely fast ramp up and ramp down times. It is common to execute stress tests that ramp up to 100% or 150% of expected peak user-load in a matter of minutes rather than the hour normally allotted for ramp up. These tests are generally only executed after several rounds of tuning. If all components of the system continue to function normally, no matter how slowly, a Spike Test passes.
