Flexible Deployment Load Generation

Run load tests using local machines, Amazon Elastic Cloud, or distributed machines around the world.

Cloud-based API Load Tests with Amazon Elastic Cloud (EC2)

You don't have a log of extra time or money. You've got to run a big important load test, either before launch or continuously in your build process. You don't want to buy servers or swamp your IT operations with on-premise virtual machine requests.

What you need is the power of the cloud. ReadyAPI can help you to:

  • Spin up massive API load tests quickly
  • Load test from multiple geographic regions
  • Split workloads between cloud compute groups
  • Estimate the cost of a load test before you run it

Distribute Traffic to On-Premise or Cloud Load Agents

Running load tests often involves simulating requests from hundreds of virtual users. Simulating these users requires a lot of resources from the computer running the test. In some situations, one computer cannot generate enough load to properly test the server.

To avoid this, you can create distributed tests. These tests use multiple computers to simulate the load on the target server. At the same time, each individual computer can handle the load generation.

If the computers creating the load are in different regions, you can measure how well your server works with clients from these regions. This also creates a more realistic test. All users are unlikely to access your server from one computer, so running distributed tests makes the simulation closer to actual user behavior.
