Software testing is an important stage in software life cycle and it is an assurance of software quality. Software testing exists in each stage of software life cycle and verifies whether the expected results are achieved or not and corrects the bugs as soon as possible. In software development processing, bugs always exist no matter what technology is adopted. Testing is applied to find bugs and used to calculate software bugs density. Performance testing is one of the vital activities spanning the whole life cycle of software engineering. This is also to improve the quality and reliability of web applications. In recent years World Wide Web traffic has shown phenomenal growth. The main causes are the continuing increase in the number of people navigating the Internet and the creation of millions of new Web sites. In addition, the structure of Web pages has become more complex, including not only HTML files but also other components. This has affected both the download times of Web pages and the network bandwidth required. The aim of this dissertation report is to monitor performance parameters which are the successful request rates and response time of web application, by using Loadrunner testing tool in three scenarios with different sizes of images and find out how images influence the access time of the web pages. The experimental results of the Loadrunner in the three scenarios of online shopping system showed that the size of images and the number of users affected the web application performance. The results proved that the increasing size of images and the number of users led to the falling of the successful request rate system and the increasing of the average response time.
