WordPress is great because it’s flexible, extensible, and can be lightweight. Why “*can* be lightweight?” Because its flexibility and extensibility - its greatest strengths - can be WordPress’ greatest weakness.
In this webinar recording you'll learn:
- How to download k6 from GitHub
- How to stream k6 results to Insights for analysis
- High level overview of results analysis and performance alerts
If you're involved in software development and/or testing of websites, apps or APIs, don't miss this webinar recording on load testing with k6 and Load Impact Insights. k6 is our new, open source load generator, available for download on GitHub (https://github.com/loadimpact/k6).
We know that in most sectors, we have to gear up for a big Q4. As we shared a couple of months ago, for ecommerce, Q4 brings in about 30% more revenue than other quarters. And every year, that Q4 total increases by 20%. But what’s easy to overlook in the holiday season excitement is this: every single quarter grows 20% in ecommerce revenue year over year.
Comscore’s latest report lays out the facts. In 2017 over 2016, Q1 grew 20%, Q2 grew 18%, and Q3 grew 20%. In 2017, each quarter was over 100 billion USD.
Busy times here at Load Impact! Not one but two new releases of k6, our open source load testing tool, since last time you heard from us. We’re moving fast towards v1.0 release, thanks to our amazing community. We love you!

k6 has been built from the ground up for use by today’s DevOps teams throughout the development cycle. Developers can use k6 early in the development cycle to load test as part of their standard Continuous Integration process.
Load Impact Insights allows you to store and analyze your k6 load test results. Built-in algorithms help automate results analysis to quickly uncover performance issues. You can start a free trial of Load Impact Insights by clicking here.

You may not be new to WordPress, but you may be new to testing your WordPress site. As your site grows, you may find your site running more slowly. Here’s how to get started load testing your WordPress site to uncover what is making it run slow.
Ever since the first early beta release, some 10 months ago, the team has worked hard to iron out bugs and scale the streaming and analysis of k6 results data, and now we’re here! 🎉
We think you should test your code for not only function but performance. We’re not alone, and we loved this article we came across recently by Thiago Duarte. Called “7 Things I Learned That Made Me a Better Programmer,” Duarte tells some great stories and shares great tips.
In some areas, it’s easy to choose between focusing development resources on mobile apps (and mobile-friendly sites) vs. desktop apps and websites. Not so in e-commerce. The landscape is surprisingly complex, but some new research helps guide your decisions.
We recently shared some insights from the recent Comscore research update (State of the US Online Retail Economy in Q4 2017), and this same research provides some insights for e-commerce professionals (like you).
Oh, do we love getting into the details of performance testing. We love finding out what little bit of code, what configuration setting, what hardware-issue-we-can-blame-on-the-IT-guys is causing our performance bottleneck.
