Load Testing


Using Loadero Python Client To Store Test Data In GitHub

Loadero API allows managing and running tests just as one would via the Loadero web application. However, sending an HTTP request every time a test needs to be created, updated, or run can become cumbersome. We already had a Java client, which makes the processes easier, and now Loadero team has been hard at work creating a new client and we are proud to present – Loadero-Python.

Distributed load testing using Kubernetes with k6 (k6 Office Hours #72)

We demonstrate how to run distributed load testing using Kubernetes with k6 and k6 operator. k6 can already run up to 40,000 virtual users from a single load generator, but if you want to scale that up further, you can use the Kubernetes operator to create a k6 custom resource within your cluster.

How to Create K6 Load Tests from API Recordings

Load testing is one of the most common ways to test the resiliency of your applications. In this blog we show how recording production data with Speedscale and exporting to a K6 load tests gives you the best of both worlds. Whether or not it's important for your organization, there are clear benefits to be had from implementing these types of tests. By doing so, you can: When it comes to load testing, two of the most modern tools are Speedscale and K6. While there are many reasons for choosing one over the other, there are also benefits to using them together. If you want to know what the main differences are, check out the in-depth comparison.


Optimizing Your Kubernetes Load Testing with Speedscale

One of the major factors that come into play when deciding on a load testing tool is whether it can perform as you expect it to. There are many ways to measure how well a load testing tool performs, with the amount of requests per second undoubtedly being one of the main ways. Speedscale creates load tests from recorded traffic, so generating load is at the core of the tool.


Software Stress Testing: A Complete Guide

You can test the software under normal conditions, and that will tell you a lot about what it can and can’t do. What you need to know, though, is how robust that software is. How can it handle intense conditions? How does it cope with error handling? Essentially, you’re testing the software by pushing it beyond its limits, to see exactly when it breaks. That’s information that you need to have, as you’ll then see just how far you can push the software when using it.

Hybrid performance testing with k6 (k6 Office Hours #71)

What is hybrid performance testing? It's an approach that involves writing and executing browser- and protocol-level testing scripts, but it does come with its own challenges. On this week's k6 Office Hours, Developer Advocates Marie Cruz and Leandro Melendez (Señor Performo) discuss the best practices for running hybrid performance tests with k6.
