Soak Testing and Bucket Testing

Soak testing involves testing a system with a significant load extended over a significant period of time, to discover how the system behaves under sustained use.
For example, In a software testing , if system is run for 1 hour then it will be normal but if system is run for 3-5 hours continuously then there will be problem such as Memory leaks  cause the system to fail or behave randomly.

Bucket Testing:Bucket testing is a methodology for gauging the impact of different product designs on a Web site s metrics.
The basic premise is to run two simultaneous versions of a single or set of Web pages in order to measure the difference in clicks traffic transactions and more between the two.
Bucket testing provided a great way to send a small amount of traffic (usually less than 5 ) to a different user interface without negatively impacting the bottom line if our new design had unintended negative consequences.
