Reduce MTTR with full stack visibility

Correlate load test results and server-side data to gain full context for troubleshooting performance issues — without switching platforms.

Create tests faster

  • Get started with the easy-to-use, well-documented APIs and CLI and a familiar scripting language, JavaScript.
  • Onboard users quickly and lower the barrier to entry for writing test scripts with the GUI test builder and browser recorder.
  • Schedule and automate testing from the web app, CLI, and CI pipelines and use SLOs as the pass/fail criteria.
  • Configure diverse test scenarios to model real-world traffic patterns in load tests.
