Performance is one of the most important aspects concerned with the quality of software. It indicates how well a software system or component meets its requirements for timeliness. Nearly everyone runs into performance problems at one time or the other. Today's software development organizations are being asked to do more with less. For performance driven development the authors propose a framework for performance analysis and performance evaluation. So, in this paper, they have discussed comparative analysis of various software performance testing tools and their limitations and a new approach for software performance testing. With an upbeat approach, they can produce software that can meet performance objectives and can be delivered on time and within budget, avoiding the project crises.
