Web Application Health Maintenance

Identify your risk factors

Take this quiz to see determine if your web applications are at risk of developing performance and stability problems.

  • We code complex queries in CF rather than SQL
  • We don't use source control
  • CFqueryparm is for wimps
  • Yes we have documentation, it was last updated 5 years ago
  • We have never looked SQL query plans, let alone optimized them
Results:
0 statements true - low risk
1-2 - medium risk
3-5 - high risk

Perform site check-ups

Web application assessments by TeraTech will tell you where your applications are vulnerable to exploitation from external attackers or internal threats. Using both commercial and proprietary tools, TeraTech tests applications to determine if design or development flaws have created weak links in the security chain. These assessments examine the entire distributed application and look for weaknesses across all tiers: presentation, application, database, and legacy.

Where other firms generate reports showing low, medium and high rankings, our development team advises on weighing risks alongside the level of effort required for remediation. Unlike other security-centric firms, TeraTech seasoned development team can also fix software vulnerabilities that may exist in its customers' applications.

Treatment Plans

We helped a large organization to send an online survey to 300,000 employees and families recently. The last time they did this the webserver crashed and was not available 100% of the time. This time TeraTech helped them to load test the application and we fixed issues with the ColdFusion code and the MySQL database ahead of time. We hosted on a cluster of six ColdFusion servers with a hardware load balancer. This time the survey ran flawlessly with 100% uptime.

Today thousands of businesses worldwide face the challenge of establishing their web presence - a goal difficult to achieve without efficient web site development and testing tools. Why is load and stress testing is so important? Most performance issues arise only when the server is stressed with a high user load. This means that you should perform load testing to know how many concurrent visitors your site can serve flawlessly. It can be difficult to organize such testing without the help of a group of real users. The right way is to use advanced automatic load and stress testing tools. TeraTech uses specific tools to simulate up to several thousands real users to check the performance of your site and find any bottlenecks.

TeraTech offers short-term, load-testing capabilities for clients who need to measure the performance of a specific application, develop load-test baselines, or create load-test scripts and scenarios. We measure transaction performance time using various load scenarios and develop summary reports to help interpreting results and take corrective action. Initial load-test setup and execution takes 3-4 weeks, depending on client installation, readiness, and available resources.

Load Testing

Let TeraTech spend some time upfront load testing your application under different test cases and user loads. Load testing is a critical step when producing any web application; it ensures that when your web app goes live, it will work properly. It does this by simulating thousands of users to your site, clicking on forms, and doing updates and searches simultaneously. Without load testing, however, bugs and server crashes may cause the loss of customers, reduced employee productivity, damage to your brand or corporate image, and even the capital expense of purchasing unnecessary hardware to fix the problems you shouldn’t have experienced in the first place.

Load Balancing

If you have a large amount of traffic, you may want to consider having TeraTech perform a load-balancing routine on your servers . Load balancing improves network performance by distributing traffic efficiently so that individual servers are not overwhelmed by sudden fluctuations in activity. Server Load Balancing is a critical component of high availability, clustering, and fault tolerance, all of which provide the infrastructure for reliable Internet sites and large corporate networks.
