Performance and Load testing for health insurance application

About the client

A Leading Professional Services Firm providing a rich range of health solutions, retirement solutions as well as risk solutions.

Client was using the application to enable its end users to choose amongst a list of plans like Medicare, Dental, Vision and Medigap policies, according to their needs. This application consumed the health related information of its users and would match them to the most relevant policies.

Client’s end users often complained about erratic performance of the application

The Challenge

Application had not to be tested for its performance and hence no standard benchmarks were available on application response time

Application needed Capacity Planning as the CPU Utilization was very high, slowing down the entire

Application performed poorly during peak hours, with exponential increase in user base, accessing application from many integration points

Application would often respond erratically when accessed for a long period of time

The Solution

CresTech benchmarked the application on normal user load, peak user load, as well as prolonged high load. We also analyzed and reported on probable bottlenecks to help improve the performance of the system.

  • We evaluated the performance of various components of the system as well as integration points on incremental load
  • Performance was also tested for peak loads and sustained high load on different infrastructures to assess the required optimum infra

Services we offered

Automated Load Generation, Benchmarking and Bottleneck Identification using JMeter | Stress Testing, Endurance Testing and Capacity Planning

Key Outcomes


increase in application throughput

Consistent Performance at all times and no production outages with optimum capacity planning, bottleneck identification and fixing
