Reliability Testing

What is Reliability Testing?

Software reliability testing a testing technique that relates to testing a software's ability to function given environmental conditions consistently that helps uncover issues in the software design and functionality.

Parameters involved in Reliability Testing:

Dependent elements of reliability Testing:

  • Probability of failure-free operation

  • Length of time of failure-free operation

  • The environment in which it is executed

Key Parameters that are measured as part of reliability are given below:

  • MTTF: Mean Time To Failure

  • MTTR: Mean Time To Repair

  • MTBF: Mean Time Between Failures (= MTTF + MTTR)
