what is the difference between Load,Stress and Volume Testing?
Answers were Sorted based on User's Feedback
Load testing – Its a performance testing to check system
behavior under load. Testing an application under heavy
loads, such as testing of a web site under a range of loads
to determine at what point the system’s response time
degrades or fails.
Stress testing – System is stressed beyond its
specifications to check how and when it fails. Performed
under heavy load like putting large number beyond storage
capacity, complex database queries, continuous input to
system or database load.
Volume testing refers to testing a software application
with a certain amount of data. This amount can, in generic
terms, be the database size or it could also be the size of
an interface file that is the subject of volume testing

Answer / slb
Load Testing: Test the s/w by increasing the number of users
Stress Testing: Reduce the configuration of the platform (OS, RAM, Memory Space etc..)and test whether the S/W is working smoothly till which condition
Volume Testing: Amount of data in the DB that the S/W can manage

Answer / janet
Load: how the application reacts under heavy loads(done
using virtual users).
Stress: how the application reacts under peak hours.
Volume: how the application reacts for growing database.

Answer / ashok
Load testing : execution of s/w under testing under customer except configuration and customer except load to estimate performance is called as load testing
Stress testing : the execution of s/w under testing under customer expected configuration more than customer expected load by incrementing intervally to find peak load is called stress testing
Volume testing: testing team insert sample data into s/w under testing database to find capacity of that database

Answer / mfsi_priyankaa
Load Testing- testing the s/w upto the max. capacity of the s/w.
Stress Testing- testing the s/w beyond the capacity of the s/w.
Volume Testing- testing the s/w at large volume of data.

what is the max load under the acceptable system
load testing, is sometimes called volume testing:
what is the max load at the point of the system will be

Answer / veena
Stress Testing :- means increasing the load and check the
performance each level.
Load testing :-means at a time give more load by
expectation and checking the performance at that level.
Volume testing :- means first we have to apply initial.

Answer / venkata dodda
Stress, volume, Load testing are very close and still well
Load Testing: Doing testing under heavy loads is called load
testing. The main objective of this testing is to record the
behaviour of the software under heavy loads. These loads are
with the limits of support of the software.
Volume Testing: This is very isolated kind of testing and
can not apply for all kinds of software. The main objective
of this testing is to test software in different volumes of
Stress Testing: The main objective of this testing is, how
a software behaves after the threshold limit. That means
software should not behave wired in terms of security and
data integrity even after the threshold levels.
