AppLoader is Automai's tool for performance testing business applications. With AppLoader, you can create test Scenarios to verify the performance of your application under varying load levels. AppLoader simulates real user load activity for applications, so you can be confident that a new or upgraded application meets expected performance requirements before bringing it into a live environment. With AppLoader, you can stress test the performance of your IT systems by simulating peak traffic from multiple locations simultaneously.
AppLoader gives you the answers to the following questions:
- Does your application perform properly under load?
- Do application response times meet your target requirements?
- How many simultaneous users can your application handle?
In this guide we will explain how to build a test scenario, send it to the Controller, and set up a typical load test for 5 users, providing tips, best practices and technical insights along the way. Our goal is that you can apply the examples demonstrated in this document to a load test in your environment. At the end, we will explain how our 5-users load test can be ramped up to a 500 or even 10k+users test with a few simple steps!
