    - Stress testing is a type of non-functional testing.

    - It is a form of software testing that is used to determine the stability of a given system.

    - Stress testing involves testing beyond normal operational capacity, often to a breaking point, in order to observe the results.

    - It also refers to qualitative evaluation of factors, such as availability or resistance to denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.

    - It is used to determine the stability of a given system.

    - It puts great emphasis on robustness, availability, and error handling under a heavy load, rather than on what would be considered correct behaviour under normal circumstances.
