Let's look at an example to see how it does that.
Simulating load with, say, Apache JMeter alone, it’s quite difficult to scale. Even though the tool allows you to run numerous distributed tests, a master node often becomes a bottleneck when you go beyond 500 simulated users. The test setup process is quite complex, too. First, you need to start up the required number of servers, then install all the needed packages to each server, configure a scheduler for the tests to start at the same time, set up a quick way to terminate testing on all servers to prevent a complete shutdown and finally collect the output and compile a test results report.
RedLine13 spares you the effort — it automatically creates the required number of AWS instances and runs tests on them, showing test results in real time. And once testing is completed, the platform terminates the instances and provides a convenient final report. This solves the scalability issue and allows software testing companies
to easily simulate thousands of users and generate tens of thousands of requests.
Running load testing with RedLine13 is inexpensive, too. The testing cost is made up only of AWS’s charges for instance usage and the cost of your subscription.
