LoadView is a web-load stress test tool that helps predict how a website will respond to various traffic levels.
LoadView can answer questions, such as:
- How will the number of website users affect website performance?
- How many simultaneous users can my website handle?
- Where are the bottlenecks in my web application?
- What’s the breaking point for my website, or when will I run out of resources?
Dotcom-Monitor provides external on-demand, self-administered website load test services, implemented and executed within minutes using an online control panel. The service does not require an investment in any hardware, or software infrastructure. Website traffic, or loads, are simulated from multiple worldwide locations. In addition to testing the website itself, LoadView tests the Internet infrastructure – connections, routers, firewalls, switches, and anything else – that may be associated with the website, or that handles traffic to the website.
This external-based approach mimics the natural behavior of actual users arriving to the website from the Internet. Therefore, it provides more accurate insights into the performance issues that website users may experience.
How LoadView works
Dotcom-Monitor uses a global network of synthetic monitoring agent locations to generate user loads for website load stress testing. As the test administrator, you can configure:
- Test targets
- Virtual user loads
- Test duration
- User behaviors to simulate
Once the stress test is configured, you can initiate a stress test at any time from the control panel by logging on to your Dotcom-Monitor account. Once a stress test is completed, the results are uploaded to the control panel and available for analysis and reporting.
