Server testing, which is also called stress testing the process of putting demand on a system or device and measuring its response. Load testing is performed to determine a system’s behavior under both normal and anticipated peak load conditions.
It helps to identify the maximum operating capacity of an application as well as any bottlenecks and determine which element is causing degradation. When the load placed on the system is raised beyond normal usage patterns, in order to test the system 's response at unusually high or peak loads.
The term load testing is used in different ways in the IT community. Load testing generally refers to the practice of modeling the expected usage of a software program by simulating multiple users accessing the program concurrently. As such, this testing is most relevant for multi-user systems; often one built using a client/server model, such as web servers.
Any technical requirements that need to be in place before the server is installed
The system needs to have the correct specifications such as minimum technical requirements, which are ram and processor speed, and without these medium specs you won’t be able to install server 2012.
Processor speeds also have a minimum processor speed of 1.4 Ghz and be a 64 bit processor Also you need to remember that although windows
