  • 2. Geographically distribute your load test by choosing where simulated users come from, i.e.{USA East, USA North, USA South, USA West, Ireland, Netherlands ,Hong Kong, Singapore, Saitama Prefecture, Osaka Prefecture}, .
  • 3. Drill down performance metrics for each simulated user

Features

  • 1. Real Time Test Monitoring (see video – coming soon)
  • 2. API access to launch tests and receive test result data (see API docs here)
  • 3. Generates thumbnails from each simulated stream
  • 4. Each test user has a unique identity that you can follow from our result data through your own log files.
  • 5. User data geographically present
  • 6. Client data collection
  • 7. Scheduled load test
  • 8. Easy to read graphical performance report
  • 9. Aggregate and individual metrics for latency, throughput, bytes received
