Application Performance Monitoring

February 22nd, 2023 by

What is Application Performance Monitoring (APM)?


Application Performance Monitoring (APM) involves employing various strategies and tools to ensure the efficient operation of business applications. These apps need to meet the performance, reliability, and user experience requirements set by stakeholders, such as employees, clients, and partners.


Mobile Application Performance Monitoring is a part of the broader term Application Performance Management, which encompasses all aspects of managing an application’s performance, while APM focuses on monitoring an application’s performance. In simple terms, monitoring is an integral part of management.


What is the purpose of APM?

The main goal of Application Performance Monitoring (APM) is to maintain an application’s optimal performance and smooth operation. It enables linking application performance to business results, detecting and correcting mistakes before they impact end-users, and minimizing mean time to repair, aiding organizations in maintaining business continuity and enhancing customer satisfaction


Why is APM crucial?


Application Performance Monitoring (APM) is important because of all the advantages it offers to a business in terms of operational effectiveness, brand recognition, and long-term cost savings.


By enabling front-end monitoring, managing the user experience, back-end monitoring of the services and dependencies used by the app, and infrastructure monitoring, APM offers improved collaboration and coordination in the application delivery process. This promotes seamless and transparent application delivery and the elimination of silos.


APM safeguards the organization’s reputation and brand image by ensuring applications are reliable and accessible. Poor application performance can lead to user dissatisfaction, lower application utilization, slower adoption, and decreased revenue. APM is essential to maintaining a good reputation and ensuring application success.


App Performance while conducting Manual Tests

The performance of an app can be viewed real-time while conducting functional tests. You can simply select the application installed on the device from the Tools section to view a graph of Memory and CPU usage, with the packets/bytes consumed in the Data Usage.

All information captured during a app testing session is gathered by the platform and stored in a secure location to be used later. When a tester completes his testing session using a device, the performance related information can be found in the Cloud Drive.


Battery Consumption

The Battery Consumption graph indicates Battery consumption by Device, Battery consumption by Application and Battery consumption in %.


 CPU Consumption

The CPU consumption of an App is plotted as CPU consumption in percentage against Time Duration in seconds.



Memory Consumption

The CPU consumption of an App is plotted as Memory consumption in ‘Mb’ against Time Duration in seconds.


How pCloudy can help you?


Mobile application testing does not stop when all the functional tests pass. Testing the application performance monitoring is a critical step before releasing it.


pCloudy helps you with performance profiling of your mobile apps. You can view the CPU usage, Memory usage, Data usage and Battery consumption while performing a series of actions on the app. The Real time app performance monitoring feature helps you to keep track of the app’s performance while conducting manual tests.

Trends We Witnessed at STC 2018

The biggest Software testing Conference in India, QAI STC 2018 came to an end on 7th December with the most insightful and pragmatic discussion that can disrupt the software testing eco-space. The focus of the event this year was on the theme – Quality by Design: Convergence of Testing, Lean, Intelligence and Automation.


We were the title sponsors this year and so got a bigger platform to showcase the NEXT we are bringing in mobile app testing world.


There was an array ideas displayed, experiments and experiences to explore challenges and suggestive techniques and best practices to successfully to overcome the common challenges.


With the top minds in software testing coming together to share the latest trends, tips on stage and through conference networking opportunities, STC this year too has succeeded in bringing forth excellent insights about future of testing in rapidly changing times. More than 30 top companies participated in this one-of its kind Expo where we have witnessed some of the monumental key developments that would shape testing landscape in the coming years.


Over 500 software testers gathered and more than 12 empanelled speakers graced the expo for 2 days. Attendees heard from experts like: Avinash Tiwari, co-founder, pCloudy, David Parker, Director, Smart Bear, Rajini Padmanabhan, V.P, QA Infotech, Anand Vaishampayan, Director – Cloud Application Migration Services, IBM, Dr. Shankar Ramamoorthy, Customer Success Officer, Harman Intl., Anupama Jayakumar, Director, Schneider Electric to name a few.


Avinash’s keynote session on “Will AI be another Tesla for software testing?” became a huge hit as he set the tone correct talking about trends like AI and Predictive Analytics that can disrupt the mobile app testing industry.


In between the sessions, the pCloudy booth was flooded with people. Our team of five did their best to answer questions and get feedback from those who are already using pCloudy as well as folks who were new to pCloudy.

Q&A Session at pCloudy booth
Here are the biggest lessons that we learnt at the STC event this year:


1) Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are setting up new standards in mobile app testing market:

The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in testing, tools, processes and methods have shown a significant improvements in search results, recommendations, forecasts, and other predictions.


Testing practitioners are recognizing the potential for advances in AI and ML to be leveraged for automated testing—an area that still requires significant manual effort.


Last year we came up with something which was quite new to the market, our AI-based test bot for Mobile App – Certifaya. This year we see this trend catching up.


There are quite a number of new tools focusing on NLP driven Automated Test case generation to AI driven self-healing automated tests. Good to see competition in this space! The race has just begun.


AI and ML in Mobile App testing


2) Predictive Analytics is going to disrupt the software testing ecosystem:

Another major learning at STC event this year has been the growing importance of Predictive Analytics in Software Testing. We are in the age of Analytics where the test data captured are translated into actionable insights for future improvement. These solutions proactively identify problem areas in the testing processes and indicate the way forward to achieve a high-quality software product. Predictive analytics uses mathematical algorithms and machine learning technologies to forecast outcomes of software testing procedures. This technique uses current and past data to generate insights and locate potential points of failure in software testing outcomes. This enables the development and testing leaders to proactively address issues early in the lifecycle, and hence faster and easier. The combination of test automation and advanced analytics will enable software development and testing managers to spend more time on strategic activities that drive greater business value over a longer term.


We succeeded in setting the tone right at STC this year.


Predictive Analytics in Software Testing


Our use cases on AI and Predictive analytics became the talk of the town.

Surely, AI and Predictive analytics are going to disrupt the mobile app testing space.


3) Digital Transformation and its impact on testing:

Most of the testing teams are already witnessing the impacts of digital transformation initiatives such as DevOps adoption and scaling Agile. From achieving quality@speed, to tooling, to team structure, to application architectures, almost everything has changed. Enterprises are already adopting shift left approach to keep pace with the growing demands from digital transformation. Shift left testing is an approach to software and system testing in which testing is performed earlier in the lifecycle (i.e., moved left on the project timeline).
Here, at STC this year, another major trend we came across was the growing importance of omni-channel testing. With digital transformation, Customers today are exploited by choices that are never ending in the actual sense of the word. But the customer expects to receive the consistent user experience across all platforms. Omni-channel User Experience Testing helps tune your digital applications and customer experience across functional tests, compatibility, usability, and app security tests.


4) No more Quality Assurance; it’s all about Quality Engineering:

Another major trend seen at STC this year was the focus from Quality Assurance towards Quality Engineering. Today, the goal of Agile is to persistently test, dissect and enhance quality throughout the development lifecycle, as opposed to only towards the end of the cycle. In this environment, mere ‘assurance’ through process monitoring will not help achieve high quality standards. Engineering quality into the management, development, operation and maintenance of IT systems and enterprise architectures is the only way organizations can ensure end-to-end quality the current environments demand.


The principles of “Shift Left” has heavily influenced the transition to Quality Engineering. Test and development teams work together in a continuous integration model and it is very important to design code which is testable and easy to integrate. This in turn allows for quick localisation of a problem and to assure individual parts are working before a significant amount of software is combined or integrated together. Dheeraj Sinha talked about how this digital transformation is changing the role of QA, the skills required, the methodology, processes involved and taking it to an all new different level. He aptly quoted- “The focus of QA shouldn’t be to find defects but to enable others to find defects.”

6 Most Common Problems in Mobile App Testing

May 11th, 2018 by

Problems in Mobile App Testing

Mobile market has shown a phenomenal growth over the years and guess who is responsible for such tremendous success- undoubtedly, it is the mobile application market and evidently its progress appears to be indomitable even in coming years. As per the research, mobile applications are expected to generate around 189 Billion USD revenue figure by 2020 merely by means of app stores and in-app advertising.. As this stream of Mobile application gets strengthened, the competition to make each app unique and effective grows even stronger. The real challenge is to maintain the competitiveness by keeping up with this fast changing industry. With so many variations in the mobile devices, it becomes a challenge in the mobile app testing to succeed in ‘All-Device’ scenario.


Here are the most common challenges faced in the mobile application testing:


1. Multiple Devices
2. Networks
3. Choice of tools
4. Screen Sizes
5. Types of Mobile Apps
6. AI Test Automation


1. Multiple Devices: As the mobile market is growing, it’s coming up with more advanced features that before. This becomes a challenge when mobile apps are incompatible with different Operating systems. A mobile app that runs smoothly in one OS might not work well in the other operating system and in different versions of it.


Android OS Distribution


2. Networks: This factor has the most impact on the performance of the mobile application which effects the experience of the app even more. The Wi-Fi speeds, signal strengths or the network drops can cause a bad taste in the mouth of the end user. Since all the network carriers are supporting different data volumes, it is important to test the bandwidth usage. A mobile app tester has to consider all these factors and ensure the app runs smoothly on all networks.Testing on real networks is a fundamental practice to check the existent challenges of testing. In order to cater to this situation, pCloudy offers such a testing environment where the user can test their apps on different network conditions on real mobile devices on cloud.




3. Choice of tools: Testing is the vital aspect of Mobile App Development life Cycle and there are myriads of tools available in the market. pCloudy offers access to tools like Espresso, Appium, Selenium, OpKey, Calabash, Jenkins and many more. Choosing the right tool as per the requirement is the most important decision. The efficacy of MAT process would completely depend upon the competency of the Test-automation tool.


Things to consider before tool evaluation:

  • Type of apps: Apps can be native, hybrid or web. While the trend is inclined towards hybrid apps but the tool of choice should be competent enough to support other kinds of apps.
  • Cloud Testing: Implementing a test automation cloud empowers teams to perform testing on any automation external testing framework .Moreover, the test results can be accessed from any location worldwide.
  • OS Support: Most of the apps are developed for IOS and Android but the scope can expand to Windows, Firefox OS, etc., anytime as the customer base increases. So, the automation tool should be able to support all platforms.




4. Screen Sizes: There are numerous devices-Android or IOS, available with different screen sizes. It is quite a challenge to test for each screen size. IOS mobile app developers who mostly focus on pixel perfect screen design now have to focus more on adaptive without changing all necessary screen elements. So, the businesses have no choice but to change their mobile app design as per the screen size of the devices to offer a top- notch user experience.




5. Types of Mobile Apps: Mobile apps can be based on either of these three architectures-native , hybrid or web application. All these types have different test case scenarios, and have different app behavior from installation to functionality.The decision of how the app will be tested depends on all these aspects.


Native Hybrid Apps


6. AI Test Automation: AI testing automation has become a vital part of the testing world and is the future of automated app testing. AI Bots can create test cases automatically, generate test codes etc., just by defining a specific testing goal and by providing the initial stage inputs. People still believe in traditional test approach without encouraging and believing testing by Bots at the times when Automated AI testing bots are the Golden Key to MAT automation success.


A good mobile app testing strategy would include a right mix of testing on real devices, user testing and bot testing all at a single platform.


pCloudy provides a biggest cloud platform for automated and manual testing of mobile apps on real devices. It has its own cluster of real devices hosted on cloud to test IOS and Android Apps. Visit pCloudy to choose your plan for availing the best MAT services.

App Testing Companies Must Follow


Today, the world is earnestly dependent on mobility devices and so is their dependency on the mobile applications. The number of smartphone users are expected to reach 3 billion by 2019 out of which India alone covers half a million. So, it becomes impertinent to have an extremely practical mobile application strategy to make the usage of it more effective. Unless the mobile application is acceptable and extremely compelling to the users, it becomes inconsequential to even trade in it. So, there is a huge responsibility on the shoulders of Mobile application companies to assure the accessibility, security, purpose and usability of the mobile application to make it noticeable and engaging enough in long term.


pCloudy is fully equipped cloud based platform with a strong principled approach to tackle and heed the performance of today’s robust mobile applications. Following are the 5 best practices to count on for successful mobile app testing:


1. Master Plan
2. Device Testing
3. An early stage testing move
4. Crowd Sourced App Testing
5. Automation


1. Master Plan: A common plan is what will drive the team towards the ultimate business goal. Defining the testing approach, the effort, the timeline and the expected results would solve a lot of anticipated problems in different testing phases.


2. Device Testing: Some important points in context to devices are:

  • Testing on every possible device is what looks promising but is impossible. So, testers have to be smart and cover the largest market with largest sample size.
  • Testing on real devices is what is going to be the reality check and is going to give a better idea of the challenges and the convenience of the general usability of the app.
  • Test on more than one OS version to check interface compatibility and consistency.


5 Best Practices App Testing


3. An early stage testing move: Testing early ensures quality and makes the application more favorable in the market as per the new approaches in mobile application development. To minimize the defects at later stages, testing efforts should start at the early stages of mobile app development life cycle.


mobile app development life cycle


4. Crowd Sourced App Testing: The best platform to employ the benefits of cloud which allows global pool of experts from all over the world to be utilized for incomparable testing practices and performance saving both time and money.Not to be considered as a replacement of traditional testing but it has some obvious benefits of testing in real world conditions and without investing in full-time testers. With more participation,feedback and reporting actions, crowd testing has become a reliable and most sought practice today. With the help of pCloudy’s global crowd, testing has become an easy ballgame ensuring app testing in different environments with different network bandwidth, on different devices and on time delivery.


crowd source


5. Automation: Test Automation is what a machine does much faster and with less error than humans. This approach would save a lot of time, cost and would provide great return on investment but for reaping all these benefits, this has to be properly planned as it involves good investment, training and cost of trained resources and tools.If the objectives are undefined, it can lead to wastage of time and resources.


Mobile app testing is facing challenges in terms of changes in networks, operating systems and of course devices. So, the functioning and performance of the mobile applications becomes the prime focus. Selecting the best tool and the reason of doing so is very important. A strategy with clear objectives would be an informed move and a savior in this decision making process.


In the end, all we have to keep in mind is the user is happy using the app and is able to fulfil the purpose. All of this cannot be achieved by an individual but by the effort and strength of the team of both Developers and testers. There can always be brainstorming and learning from failures but the real game can be played by having a strong unified strategy.

Future trends getting bigger for mobile apps in e-commerce industry

April 5th, 2018 by

Future Trends


Living in a technological era has forced entrepreneurs to adapt to current market and technology trends. Mobile is one such driving force that is propelling enterprises to another level.


E-commerce industry is so vast that it needs a proper channel or platform to reach a wider spread of audience. Android and iPhones both have turned to be largely used platforms used by people across the globe.


Consumers of ecommerce industry today use their mobile devices in numerous contexts like – making a purchase anytime, anywhere, browse and get details about a product while shopping in store. A mobile app serves as a bridge connecting all channels and touch points between a retailer and a customer which they together leverage to get a great and seamless shopping experience. Let us have a look at the trends that tend to set the future of mobile apps in e-commerce industry.


A Rising Influx of Mobile Shoppers

Just as smartphone usage and sales continue to tick upward, mobile shopping is likewise expected to rise. Mobile devices currently account for 19% of all ecommerce sales in the United States; however, the figure is projected to rise to 27% by the end of 2018, according to an Invesp report. This influx of mobile shoppers also presents new challenges to merchants, though. Though desktop driven ecommerce sales may be plateauing, but data from Comscore shows that online sales are booming as a whole. Sales from mobile devices are now leading the charge with an annual growth rate of 59% that eclipses desktop 17%.


Mobile App Testing Trends
Source: Invesp report


More Prevalent Storefront Apps

In a response to the aforementioned challenge of appealing to mobile buyers, expect to see a new wave of mobile “storefront apps” to reach buyers on-the-go. This trend goes hand in hand with the need for merchants to have omni-channel presence, as well. Given that mobile users spend 86% of their time within apps versus mobile sites, perhaps branded native smartphone shopping apps are the key to converting those once-fickle customers.




After all, if a customer is willing to go through the effort of downloading a mobile app, chances are they’re loyal and trusting enough to make ongoing purchases. “App commerce” platform Poq recently found that storefront apps outperform mobile web conversion rates by 40%, support longer browsing sessions than even desktop web browsers and are twice as likely to drive repeat visits. This all makes sense given the game-changing functionalities that storefront apps offer, which include superior content personalization opportunities, push notifications and geo location-integrated brick-and-mortar shopping recommendations.




Poq’s compelling solution, for one, offers a centralized content management system that merchants and marketers can use as a unified data hub that uses an API to automatically sync with analytics platforms, payment gateways, customer review platforms and more.


Boom of app adoption in Indian market

Over 80% of buyers surveyed in India now prefer using apps over mobile browsers to shop on phones, compared to the global average of around 70%, according to a report published by payments technology firm Worldpay. At an average download of 10 mobile apps per day, India has been far ahead and is a thriving market beating its rival U.S and U.K. where the average downloads are 7, the report added. Indians downloaded 12.1 billion apps last year, dethroning the US’s app economy (11.3 billion).


India's App Market is Booming


Getting the app experience right can yield handsome rewards for e-tailers. After all, according to the Worldpay report, one in three Indians spent more than Rs4,000 ($62) on their last purchase. Tapping the right market will be the key to their success for e-tailers.




Nobody can truly predict the future in regard to ecommerce. However, these current trends will continue to heavily influence the space for the time being. One thing that is inevitable for the evolving e-commerce industry is that they should maintain the highest quality apps with fastest time to market. The best strategy would be to test the apps on multiple real devices with different OS versions and on different parameters on a cloud based platform that can deliver better quality apps faster. pCloudy is the ideal full lifecycle digital testing cloud based platform to test all the mobile and IOT apps.


Manual, automated and crowd testing can be done on both iOS and Android devices. These tests can be run on a public cloud, on premise or a dedicated private cloud as per the need. Both Selenium and Appium tests can be run on pCloudy. One of the biggest advantage of it is that it can be integrated with Continuous Integration systems.
