Place as much stress as needed to test your website – from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of concurrent users – and discover how your system behaves in extreme conditions. On a daily basis, WebLOAD is used to stress test ecommerce sites, financial applications, educational systems and Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud computing services.
Performance testing with flexible load generation
WebLOAD can simulate anywhere from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of virtual users, which are designed with a small footprint to optimize hardware usage. From the central console, you can distribute the load across an unlimited number of machines, with WebLOAD managing the distribution of scripts and collecting all data. WebLOAD provides a seamless integration with Amazon EC2, letting you easily generate load from the cloud.
Cut root-cause identification time
Monitor your system behavior under stress, with WebLOAD collecting server-side performance data from operating systems, web servers, application servers, and database servers. Drill down further, taking advantage of the built-in integration with application performance management (APM) tools like AppDynamics and Dynatrace. Start by tracking high-response-time transactions defined in WebLOAD, and traces performance issues all the way down to the invoked method, using a click of a button.
Rich web technologies support
WebLOAD makes it easy to generate website stress test scenarios and supports a wide range of web technologies and protocols including web 2.0, push technologies, Websocket, html5, Web Services. See the Supported Technologies page.
How to distribute stress in load test scenarios
One of the challenges in load testing is planning and deciding which user activities to include and how to mix different usage scenarios. Read our blog post and learn how to plan the distribute user activities to generate the right load on your system.
