Your site has a breaking point.
Let's find it before your users do.
Don't crash under peak traffic! Load test your web application with thousands of parallel bots to optimize performance, control costs, and prevent downtime.Start testing for free
Load test at the protocol layer,
or automate real headless browsers
Protocol Bots execute scripted HTTP/S requests against your website or API. With multithreaded HTTP clients that simulate real browsers or programmatic callers, Protocol Bots are the most cost-effective way to load test your APIs and static sites.
Browser Bots control real headless Chrome browsers, for the most realistic load testing possible. Controlling thousands of real browsers is the easiest way to stress test dynamic web applications and rich static websites.
ready for traffic spikes and floods
Use Loadster's datasets, validators, and capturers to load test your API with dynamic requests.
Test any kind of HTTP API, including REST, GraphQL, JSON-RPC, & XML-RPC.
If you use OpenAPI/Swagger, Loadster's scripting interface can create steps directly from the API specification.
Bulletproof Web Apps
Loadster handles cookies automatically, and you can submit dynamic data with each request by binding to a CSV dataset.
Add advanced validation rules to detect errors or anomalies, and capture values from responses to reuse later.
Indestructible Static Sites
Record scripts with the free Loadster Recorder browser extension.
Play them back with thousands of concurrent users from any of 24 cloud regions across the globe.
With Loadster's cloud testing platform, you’ll save time and money by spinning up fully managed instances with zero setup.
the performance testing cycle
Rapidly create your test scripts
Record load test scripts right in your browser, with the Loadster Recorder extension for Chrome or Firefox. Just step through your site like a real user would while Loadster records every step into a script. After recording, play your script back in real time, and edit it to perfection with Loadster's interactive script editor.
Launch distributed cloud tests in seconds
Configure your test scenario with groups of bots in regions of your choosing, running your scripts, ramping the load up and down, to simulate the geographically distributed traffic you see in the real world.
Loadster's got what you need to run globally distributed cloud tests with minimal setup. No need to deploy your own instances to run test infrastructure! In about 90 seconds, Loadster can launch tens of thousands of bots across hundreds of cloud instances in regions of your choosing.
Analyze results with quick reporting
While a load test runs, Loadster gives you realtime metrics on response times (average and percentile), network and transaction throughput, errors, and more.
After it finishes, the same data is instantly available in a test report you can hold on to or share with your team.
The metrics and report data inform you how your site handled the traffic, what kind of performance your real users can expect when the site's under a similar amount of load, and where the hot spots and bottlenecks might be.
