Picking the right performance testing tool can be a challenge. What should you look for and what is important? Performance testing is a phrase many developers have come across at some point, but what is it exactly? In simple terms, performance testing is a software testing practice used to determine stability, responsiveness, scalability, and most important, speed of the application under a given workload.

As APIs become more complex, it can be easy to accidentally break connections. To prevent this, Speedscale can automatically detect and make you aware of inbound and outbound transactions running through APIs in our API Dependency Graph. The Traffic Viewer dashboard makes this information visible to independent teams working on different services. In most organizations this information is usually only known by senior engineers, team leads, and architects.

Today’s software testing trends show the growing demand for more efficient and automation-oriented API testing. Many of the current test automation solutions focus on the UI, while most API-level testing is still done manually. As a result, testers are in need of easy-to-use, intelligent automation tools for testing APIs — improving their productivity and efficiency, while also reducing time-to-market.

Minimizing and automating the path from development and production is necessary in order to stay competitive and keep customers happy. As engineering teams strive to solve this by quickly and efficiently rolling out new features, updates, and bug fixes, continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) has come to be regarded as an industry best practice. One of the most popular CI/CD solutions is Jenkins, an open-source job execution system.

Have you ever written a Hello, World! application? In most of these tutorials the first step is to log words to the console. It’s an easy way to understand what is going on with your application and readily available in every programming language. The console output is incredibly powerful, and it has become easier than ever to capture that output as logs. As your application grows and evolves you likely will progress through some kinds of maturity.

Forecast latency, throughput and headroom before every deploy.

Continuous Resiliency from Speedscale gives you the power of a virtual SRE-bot working inside your automated software release pipeline. Forecast the real-world conditions of every build, and know you’ll hit your SLO’s before you go to production.

Feed Speedscale traffic (or let us listen) and we’ll turn it into traffic snapshots and corresponding mock containers. Insert your own service container in between for a robust sanity check every time you commit. Understand latency, throughput, headroom, and errors -- before you release! The best part? You didn’t have to write any scripts or talk to anyone!

Automated Traffic Replay for Every Stakeholder:

  • DevOps / SRE Pros: Understand if your app will break or burn up your error budget before you release.
  • Engineering Leads: Let Speedscale use traffic to autogenerate tests and mocks. Introduce Chaos testing and fuzzing.
  • Application Executives: Understand regression/performance, increase uptime and velocity with automation.

Before you go to production, run the projection.
