Stress-test your web app
Stress-test your web app.
Stressor is a tool, that runs a sequence of activities in one or more parallel sessions. The most common use case is to run a test script with HTTP commands against a web server, simulating a bunch of parallel user sessions. As a result we get metrics about reponse times, failures, resource usage, etc.
Stressor can be used for testing, benchmarking, load testing, or to generate test data. Stressor comes with prebuilt activities for HTTP-request and more, and can be extended by custom activity-plugins.
Test scripts can be defined as text files, using a special syntax, that is then
executed by the
stressor command line tool.
Stressor is also an Open Source Python library that can be included into your
own projects. This allows to define test scenarios programmtically.
