Stability Test

Stability tests exercise a system at and beyond the worse expected demand it is likely to face. The majority of critical deficiencies in the system will have already been identified during the execution of load/performance tests, so tests deal more with assessing the impact on performance and functionality under a heavy or unreasonable load. Stability scenarios will also identify many other system bottlenecks not previously noticed, which may in fact be partially responsible for earlier identified problems.

A stability test is a type of load test that assesses how dependable and robust a Web application is, rather than its responsiveness or throughput. This kind of test places a consistent workload on the application being tested for a considerable period of time.
