When I started performance testing for a product I was working on, I remember thinking “well this is slow”. But I didn’t know where to start.
I used Lighthouse to give me an idea of what exactly was slow, the low hanging fruit so to speak.
When it came to running JMeter scripts though, I wasn’t sure exactly what the goal should have been and the team wasn’t either.
What are some things you’d consider before starting with the performance tool? What questions would you ask to help guide your approach?
