Performance Testing:- is nothing but to test the performance of the testing application or system and to monitor the system performance under high load conditions etc.

Diff between Load testing and Stress testing

Load Testing:- is that in which we are applying the load till its end point i.e. let say if we are testing a website which is capable to take the load of 100 diff http users.Then we will apply the load from 1 to 100 (its upper limit only ) and check the performance in terms of speed, sustainability etc.

Stress Testing:- In stress testing we are testing the application by applying the load beyond its upper limit. i.e. more than 100 diff http users and then check it performance etc.

Load Test : is all about checking application performance under different types of load. For Eg. In case of web site , Different number of hits per second.

Stress Test : is about checking the application behavior under a specified load.

In both test tests : Memory and CPU utilization , Throughput , Response time, Processing time etc. things are important.
