Allows you to start creating a test with Script Builder, JMeter file, Gatling file, and Selenium WebDriver editor. Also presents other options Convert to JMX and JTL to Loadium Report.
Displays your actively running tests.
Allows you to compare the results of test runs with each other.

1) Test Creation

To start creating a test, you can either choose to create a new one through the online no-code web editor or upload your previously created script from the desired technology.

Script Builder

You can create your own script from scratch through Loadium's online editor.
Simple HTTP Builder
Record&Play

Simple HTTP Builder

A simplistic approach for creating your script where you will enter basic parameters like request type (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE), request URL, reponse&connection timeout, etc.
Get started quickly with the Simple HTTP Builder guide:

Record & Play

A more advanced approach where you can also record your web surfing with the Google Chrome extension to be used in the editor.

By Uploading Script

Loadium supports open-source technologies to create & run your tests:
JMeter
Gatling
Web Driver

JMeter Test

Apache JMeter is an open-source tool that supports many protocols like HTTP, JDBC, LDAP, FTP, etc. Creating a JMeter test is the main feature of Loadium which supports all the key features of JMeter.
Get started quickly with the JMeter Test guide:

Gatling Test

Gatling is an open-source performance testing framework based on Scala, Akka and Netty. You can simply upload your Gatling file and desired CSV files to create your test and start testing.
Get started quickly with the Gatling Test guide:

Web Driver Test

Selenium WebDriver is a functional test automation library, you can use your Selenium scripts to create performance tests. You can also use Java and Javascript language to create Selenium-based performance tests.
Get started quickly with the Web Driver Test guide:

2) Running

During test creation, you can manage the test settings to shape the test running course.
Load Configuration
Geolocation
Failure Criteria
Scheduling
APM
You can configure the virtual user amount, their ramp-up period, and test duration (some parameters may vary between the technologies)
You can choose to distribute your load generation to multiple locations with Cloud Service or use your personal servers with Private Locations.
You can see our guides for more detailed information.
An optional feature where you can choose certain KPI metrics and set thresholds for each request to track their performance
You can see our guide for more detailed information.
An optional feature where you can schedule your tests to automate their run.
An optional feature where you can integrate New Relic or AppDynamics APM Tools to get their metrics displayed on the Loadium Report.
You can see our guide for more detailed information.
When you finish creating a test, the information you have put; uploaded files, load configurations, geolocations, KPI, etc. will be saved and you can access it from the Home Page. You can run your created tests from the Home Page.

3) Analyzing

Test Report
Compare Test
Observing Progress
During a test run, the test metrics will be presented lively. After a test finishes, you can access these reports from the test's Sessions page.
You can check out the Test Report guide for a more comprehensive cover:
Loadium allows you to compare your tests to help you to analyze your tests better. A quick guide for it will be coming soon!
After several runs of your same created test, the overall progress of test results will be presented in the test's Sessions Page.
