Gatling is an open-source load testing tool based on Scala, Akka, and Netty. It allows us to create and conduct high-performance, low-maintenance load tests on local and cloud computers.
Loadium with Gatling can be utilized in a variety of ways. You may use it to create an automated simulation for website performance testing, for example. Multiple parameters may be added to the script, and the Gatling configuration can be modified at any time. It also has excellent HTTP protocol support, making it a popular tool for testing HTTP servers.
Avoiding to load test your web application can be risky. If the product is exposed to an excessive load, the entire system can fall on its knees, offering nothing but a waste of time and resources and potentially unhappy users.
That’s why load testing is one of the crucial parts of performance testing.
Open-source. Gatling is a Scala-based open-source performance testing platform with a human-readable DSL that makes it easy to write and run tests.
Code Reusability and Versioning. We can add versioning to the Gatling source code, which will improve team cooperation and make it easier to monitor past modifications.
Multithreading. Gatling makes use of the Netty framework and Akka toolkit, which are built on the actor model, which is distributed and fully asynchronous by design, preventing Gatling from allocating a new thread for each user. It allows a single thread to simulate a list of user trips.
