Frequently Asked Questions

Which cloud infrastructure providers are available through the LoadView Platform?
Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform
What are Load Injectors?
LoadView uses virtual load injector servers to distribute simulated user load while executing stress tests. Dotcom-Monitor supports 13 geo-locations to instantiate load injectors from.
Can you test complex web applications that require a login or use AJAX, Silverlight, or Flash?

You can set up basic single page load tests or complex multi-step scripts using the EveryStep Web Recorder.  Simply point and click on a website, fill out forms, click buttons, and navigate through the application. All user interactions can be recorded, including AJAX, HTML5, Flash, or other Rich Internet Applications (RIAs).

What is the maximum number of users can you generate?

There is virtually no limit to the number of users that can be generated for a load test since LoadView runs in the cloud. The tests are theoretically limited by the total number of load injectors available from the cloud providers at any given point and by the cost to lease those servers from cloud providers. Given enough advanced time to setup a test, you should be able to generate as much load as you need to complete a proper load test.

When should I use protocol, headless browser, or real browser-based tests?

Depending on the specific need, use case, or technology of the system being tested, the LoadView platform can be utilized to run multiple user simulation types – HTTP/S, headless browser-based, and real browser-based simulations.

  • HTTP/S-based load simulation

Protocol level scripts are perfect for component level tests in CI/CD environments and have a low footprint on load injection machines. Recommended for testing the following:

• Web servers
• Web APIs, such as JSON, SOAP, Rest, and XML
• Single web pages without JavaScript or CSS

  • Headless browser-based simulation

Often faster than real browsers since you bypass all the elements of a real browser like JavaScript, CSS, and HTML, headless browsers are great for automating tasks and instances where you’re looking to get browser data quickly. Headless browser-based simulation has a medium footprint on load injection machines.

  • Real browser-based simulation

When you need to simulate real user behavior and have web applications that utilize specific technologies and Rich Internet Applications (RIA), like JavaScript, CSS, Flash, or AJAX, using a real browser is key. Using this simulation allows developers to verify the site’s functionality and speed as perceived by a user, but this option has the highest footprint on load injection machines.

What are Virtual Users?
Virtual Users (VUs) are the multiple, concurrent connections that are opened during a test. These connections can simulate real user behavior when making requests to or accessing a website or application.
What is meant by load testing in real browsers?

Some competitors use just headless browsers, such as PhantomJS, or headless emulators, like Selenium. These tools are used to automate testing by simulating the client-side elements, which doesn’t give a realistic representation of the user experience.

The LoadView platform can be utilized to run three user simulation types: HTTP/S, headless browser-based, and real browser-based simulations. With real-browser based tests, LoadView allows you choose between real browsers, such as Chrome, Internet Explorer, and mobile browsers/devices, so you can measure the actual client-side/user experience.

How do you ensure the load injectors themselves are not a bottleneck of testing?

When you calibrate a test, we calculate how many virtual users per machine can safely run without over-burdening the CPU of each load injector. This is how we arrive at the number of virtual users per load injector. Depending upon the task type, and whether the tasks use a real browser or not, there can sometimes be a small spike at the beginning of a task as a browser such as IE opens, clears cache and starts the script.

Typically the average CPU usage is much lower than 100 percent, so we do allow you to increase the number of virtual users per machine to get a higher utilization of each machine, however, if you change this number, we cannot guarantee the cloud machines will not max out CPU usage and become a slight bottleneck of the test.

What is a geo-zone?
A geo-zone is a location where load injectors are instantiated and where virtual users are created.
While stress and load testing, you can select from up to 13 geo-zones from around the world.
