Baseline Testing and Benchmark testing

Baseline Testing : It is a type of non-functional testing in which a set of tests are run to capture performance information. Using this gathered information, we can make required changes in the application and ultimately improve the performance and capabilities of the application. In general, it refers to a benchmark that usually forms the base of any new creation. During this testing, many errors are discovered and resolved.

Benchmark Testing : It is a type of testing that involves both the developers and DBAs (Database Administrators) to determine current performance information. Using this information, one can improve the performance of the same by matching it with the benchmarks (industry standards). Its main objective is to compare the present and future software releases with their specific benchmark.
