Performance baseline testing is called Benchmart test. This is the first test under performance testing which is done by the performance test engineer to  Compares the performance of a new or unknown server to a known reference standard, such as existing software or measurements.

below is the example how to proceed to achive complete performance test result:

Benchmark tests – Compares the performance of a new or unknown server to a known reference standard, such as existing software or measurements.

· Configuration tests – Verifies the acceptability of the server's performance behavior using varying configurations while the operational conditions remain constant.

· Load tests – Verifies the acceptability of the server's performance behavior using varying workloads while the operational conditions remain constant.

· Stress tests – Verifies the acceptability of the server's performance behavior when abnormal or extreme conditions are encountered, such as diminished resources or an extremely high number of users.

· Contention tests – Verifies that the server can handle multiple user demands on the same resource (that is, data records or memory).

Baseline testing is testing to rule out possibility that large number of users causing system degradation, which is usually to expose problem that are not related to the actual load. That might be functional problem etc. Usually performed with as lowest number of users as possible, i.e. just 1 user.
