3-3-15 improving systems: Stress testing

Stress testing is one of the best ways to discover weaknesses in your system

You just sit in front of your system and ask yourself this question:
Here is the system, how can I break it?
Then you try every way to break your own system (of course without making permanent damage to it). Then you study what you did actually and see how you can prevent this from happening

-          Stress testing is just about knowing the maximum capacity of the system to do ______  that it breaks if things go beyond this capacity (or the quality becomes too bad)
