Getting Started with Loadium

Loadium is designed to be user friendly, but everyone needs some help to get started.

Please read on if you have very few information about load testing and Loadium.

What is Load Testing?

A brief explanation of load testing for beginners.

Let’s say we are an engineer who is to design a bridge. What should we consider when designing this bridge?

First of all, we have to calculate the maximum number of cars that could pass over the bridge and the average weight of these cars. Similarly, in the software world, applications are designed for a specific concurrent user load.

The load test ensures that potential malfunctions in the system are detected and prevented in advance by identifying problems such as delays and enabling page prevention in the system when multiple users access the application.

The purpose of load testing is to maintain system reliability and performance, to ensure the successful operation of the system software, and to ensure that the end user benefits from the system with full efficiency.

What is Loadium?

Loadium is a 100% domestic product developed by Saha Information Technologies R&D engineers. Its purpose is to simulate demands from heavy loads and disorganized systems, that are close to real user behavior and provide reports instantly. The most important difference from standard products is that the demands requested from a wide network get the closest results to the real demands and the reach loads of millions of demands can be reached.
