Live Load Testing
With our live load testing services, a team of testers from around the world will test your web application simultaneously. This enables us to help you monitor and measure your app's performance in real time and under real-world conditions. Unlike most load testing services, uTest can complete this process without the time, cost or specialized expertise required by synthetic load testing tools.
When It Makes Sense
Simulated load tests only tell part of the story for many apps. uTest's live load services are ideal in many situations, including:
- Flash and Multimedia Apps: When launching a web app that incorporates flash, video and other streaming media, your automated tests may indicate that all is well, even when it's not. Live testers, on the other hand, can determine if the sound quality is off, if video is pixelated, the file takes too long to buffer or other problems that simulated load testing rarely catches.
- Limited Traffic Apps: Load testing is helpful, and not just for apps that are anticipating millions of users. uTest live load testing works great for apps with moderate traffic, and it mirrors how real visitors will experience your application.
- Start-Ups and SMBs: For most small- and medium-sized companies, traditional load testing tools and services are prohibitively expensive, time-consuming and require specialized skills. uTest provides these companies with the ability to simulate peak traffic in a quick, easy, cost-effective manner.
On the importance of live load testing:
“As a business owner, you never want the public telling you there’s a problem with your web application – it has to be determined beforehand. uTest allowed us to achieve complete testing coverage before our launch - and they did it for half the cost of an outsourcing firm.” - Michael Weisman, VP of Technology, Recall Media Group
