Realistic simulated users – We simulate traffic exactly how it would happen in real life. Our Virtual Users (VUs) use multiple concurrent TCP connections when loading resources from a single target host; can ramp-up from 0 to 100,000 users in under a minute; use DNS just like real clients (cache according to TTL, etc.); have extensive HTTP support including redirect behavior, custom headers, all verbs, cookie handling, compression handling, etc.
Mobile testing - Quickly create a load test which simulates different mobile network conditions - such as 3G, 4G, Edge, etc - and easily record mobile user scenarios using our hosted proxy recorder.
API testing - Exercise the set of calls documented in your API exactly as your users would. Ensure that resources exposed by the API can be created, listed, updated and deleted appropriately under expected load.
Large-scale load generation – We are able to generate load levels as high as 1.2 million concurrent users with multiple IPs and locations, depending on requirements.
Automatic and advanced scripting - Script user scenarios in Lua, using our IDE with code completion, JSON and XML parsing, data parameterization and more. Or analyze a web page and generate a load script automatically - no programming required.
Server metrics - Install our lightweight monitoring agent on the servers you are load testing and get detailed information about resource utilization (CPU, memory usage, etc) on your machines during your load test
Scenario recorders - Record an HTTP session using our proxy recorder or our Chrome Extension and let the simulated users perform the same actions during the test.
Browser emulation - Configure your load test to emulate popular browsers such as Firefox, IE, Chrome, Safari etc. or more exotic types of user agents such as GoogleBot
Multi-geographic distribution of load - In a single test, we can generate load from up to 10 different locations simultaneously. We can add even more locations upon request.
Continuous Delivery testing - Use our Continuous Integration plugins (TeamCity and Jenkins) for easy implementation or our raw access API and SDKs (Java and Python) for greater control and flexibility.
