Stress Testing

What are everybody’s favorite tools for stress testing? http://tsung.erlang-projects.org looks like a pretty cool project, anything written in elixir that is similar?

Best,
Adam

last time I checked loader.io was the only online load testing able to saturate a 2€/month elixir/phoenix server on the free tier, so check that out…

also watch this video on load testing:

the tool I would recommend is gatling.io, even if it’s java it works great and outputs both pretty html with graphs and json etc…

Haven’t dived into tsung though.

@outlog Interesting! Do you know if Loader is able to connect with a websocket and send loads of websocket-messages? Because that is what our application is doing, and we want to stress-test that system shortly.

Maybe https://github.com/satori-com/tcpkali might fit your needs?

I just use the old wrk tool, it hits things harder than anything else I’ve tried yet.
