Website Load Testing
Bashton can provide full load testing for your website, giving you the confidence that it will stand up to the demands of peak loads.
We work with you to design suitable tests which properly simulate real world usage. These tests are then run from one or many locations around the world, depending on the expected visitor patterns expected. We can simulate up to 500 000 virtual users, providing realistic simulations for the most demanding sites.
Because our tests involve driving real web browsers in an automated manner, web based applications utilising ajax are fully supported. In general, if the site works in Firefox or Google Chrome, we can load test it.
The reports provided by our load testing service give a good idea of the current state of the web site, the traffic volumes at which performance degrades, and where it fails altogether. For a more in depth understanding of why performance is limited to these traffic volumes, and how to improve, please see our performance consultancy services.
