So, you want to load test your website or web application to see if it will handle the expected normal and peak user traffic. How can you create a realistic test script that captures a typical user journey in your app?
PRODUCT UPDATE - NO.1 2018
A new year is upon us - and a lot is going on at Load Impact. We’ve just done this year’s first release for k6, with a lot of new fabulous features. For this version we’ve had contributions from 10 people outside of Load Impact, yay!
In order to get actionable results from your performance tests, you need to create scenarios that closely mimic the expected behavior of your users.
After all, what good is a test if it’s not preparing you for a real-world event?
Whenever a user stops taking actions in order to think about their next move in an application, that translates to “client sleep time” in your user scenario — and it’s an incredibly important, yet often-forgotten function.
Start a load test with just a few clicks. Record all HTTP traffic and use the recordings to simulate real user traffic under realistic load.
The Load Impact Chrome extension will capture everything – every single thing being loaded into the browser as you click – including ads, images, documents, etc., so you get a far more accurate read of what’s going on.
