Load testing and Performance testing are important for discovering bottlenecks in your system and determining the load capacity it can handle. Most of the time, it is necessary to carry out these tests behind the firewall of companies for data privacy and security.
Loadium provides On-Premise Load Generator solution to run performance testing behind firewall.
Our service that creates the load on the servers in your tests with Loadium is called Load Generator. In standard tests, Load Generator is located on Loadium servers. It runs the tests in its environment and creates loads by sending requests to the servers of the companies.
Some companies operate behind firewalls to protect their servers from DDOS and similar attacks. In this case, the load generated by the Load Generator is usually blocked by the firewall.
Services that you can use to bypass the firewall such as “On-Premise Load Generator” and “Dedicated IP” are provided on Loadium.
Unlike standard tests in the use of On-Premise Load Generator, the Load Generator service runs on the company’s own server that runs the test. This way, it can safely perform load tests behind the firewall.
The On-Premise Load Generator is run with Docker Container launched inside the company’s servers. On-Premise Load Generator sends periodic requests to the Loadium server, receives the test information to be run and runs the tests in the company server. During the test, the load test is performed without any data leaving the server. While the test is running, Load Generator provides the report by uploading the statistical metric data it collects to Loadium servers.
