Sometimes using a graphical user interface isn’t enough to fulfill your daily tasks, especially when you start automating your testing routines. Imagine a scenario, when you perform a regression test on a piece of functionality every time you push a new release or merge your code to a particular branch. It would be a nightmare to manually run those tests every time, especially if your team is rather large and you’re practicing continuous delivery.

Setting a correct increment strategy for load generation is crucial when you are load testing a website or service. It’s especially important to make sure your website will not be bombarded by a huge number of participants all at once. Choosing correct increment strategy helps you organize your test run flow. You are making sure that participants start exactly how you expect. That can be especially useful for WebRTC service testing.

Countless things should be tested within web applications but among them, one of the most important scenarios to be tested and even load tested is the user login process. User login serves as a medium between providing users with most of the product features and therefore requires careful and thorough testing. If your website allows users to log in, a login page test is necessary. An automated test for this can be easily created for this.

November was a big month for Loadero in terms of updates. We were working on the compute units feature for a long time and are very happy that now we provide our customers even more control over configuring test participants. We improved our test runner stability and made some important fixes. We are proud to share what has been updated and are sure that this will help you to run even better tests with us.

Previously Loadero had the same amount of compute power assigned to each participant in every test, but applications that our customers test are different and have different demands for end user machine resources. That is why we added compute units to give our customers better flexibility in test creation. This also allows to run much larger load tests as well as optimize cost of running the tests for the applications that don’t use much compute power.

Loadero performance and load testing service allows you to run end-to-end tests of your web service from a cloud-hosted infrastructure. Whenever you need to test smoothness of operation of your application for different browsers, locations or network conditions, test WebRTC app with simulated webcam and microphone inputs, load test with thousands of virtual participants or record your test run session for further analysis, Loadero got you covered with these and a lot other useful features.

Loadero simplifies creation, running and hosting of end-to-end tests for real-time communications applications. These tests will exercise all flows involved in the application and provides a way to do performance assertions. Loadero can be used to test webRTC applications that require webcam and microphone inputs. Once the tests have finished running, webRTC statistics like jitter, latency and bandwidth are available for analysis. If certain thresholds for statistics are known, they can be enforced with post-run assertions.

Loadero is a cloud-hosted service for testing websites and web applications. Performance and load tests with powerful features like built-in media for WebRTC testing, network conditioning, choosing browser versions and worldwide locations are available for running tests for tens of thousands concurrent users.

Simple and complex test scenarios can be scripted using Selenium in JavaScript or Java and run to get a detailed statistics report, that includes machine use data for every participant, WebRTC data and summarized results with graphs.

Our flexible pricing model allows single runs on demand with single payment and subscription for frequent use. From single user to enterprise scale, Loadero has all necessary to fulfill your testing needs.

With Loadero you can run:

  • Performance tests: With performance tests you can run functional UI automation and collect different client-side statistics during the test runtime. Performance tests provide full logging as well as detailed client machine and WebRTC statistics.
  • Load tests: Load test mode lets you test your service under high load conditions. Loadero can simulate thousands of participants using the same scenarios and UI automation as in performance tests, providing high code reusability and exercising all application flows, including background requests, data sharing, and media flows.
  • WebRTC tests: Set everything a WebRTC app is sensitive to: media quality, network conditions, participants locations, browser versions and get detailed WebRTC statistics.

Your performance & load testing partner from the cloud.
