Load Testing Vs Stress Testing

Similar to my previous posts, Differences IPv4 Vs IPv6 and Differences Routing Vs Routed protocol, below are the differences between Load Testing and Stress Testing.

Load Testing
Stress Testing
Finds out application behavior under normal or predefined workload conditions Finds out application behavior under extreme workload conditions
Does not aim to break application under test Aims to find out breaking point for application under test
Finds out bugs such as memory leaks, buffer overflows Finds out unpredictable issues that application might encounter
Ensures performance baseline established during performance testing. Helps find out fault tolerance and recoverability for your application when it fails or breaks.
It is very basic but useful. I will be adding points to the same post as and when necessary if required.
