SmartBear Unveils New Load Testing Tool For Web Applications
Massachusetts-based software testing specialist SmartBear has released LoadNinja, a cloud-based platform for software engineers and performance testing professionals. According to the company, LoadNinja’s combination of automation, actionable performance data and accurate loads is intended to free up engineer time by simplifying the creation of load testing scripts.
TrueLoad technology within LoadNinja uses real browsers at scale for load tests, creating a highly accurate representation of load on the infrastructure supporting the web application under test, according to the company.
LoadNinja also features an InstaPlay recorder, which allows recorded scripts to be played back immediately, allowing for the frequent execution of tests in an Agile/DevOps setting. This, according to the company, differentiates the new solution from protocol-based tools and enables agile projects to scale easily.
“Application performance is critical to ensure the continued success of a digital business,” said Anand Sundaram, VP of Performance Testing and Monitoring at SmartBear. “Teams struggle to incorporate performance testing of their applications due to the unreasonable amount of time it takes to get the load testing scripts right using conventional tools. LoadNinja removes this manual effort, helps you generate the most realistic load using real browsers, and provides actionable performance data about the behaviour of the web applications under conditions of stress.”
LoadNinja is being unveiled to customers at SmartBear Connect 2018, the company’s annual user conference, taking place on October 29-30, 2018 in Boston.
