Essential API Performance and Load Testing

If you have an API, you should be load testing it. You should test it frequently and consistently.

With that out of the way, here’s why: API consumers are like your end users of a website or app. Yet unlike sites or apps, APIs don’t have front ends or usage paths to follow. Instead, assuming you’ve built the right capabilities into your API, everything comes down to performance.

So basic testing of your API is fine when you want to achieve “works on my machine”-level performance. But that isn’t enough for professional use.

Webinar Recording: Performance testing in the cloud

Performance testing is an essential part of today's DevOps workflows. It requires the capability to run load tests both locally and in the cloud to address different users' needs at different stages of the software development cycle. Local testing for developers early in the development cycle. Cloud testing for developers and QA teams that need to run much larger tests later in the dev cycle.

Cloud execution services free you from having to maintain your own load generation infrastructure. Watch this webinar to learn how you can run performance tests in the cloud using the open source load testing tool - k6.
