Load Testing

A social media titan just re-tweeted your link—are you ready for the floodgates to open? Is your product able to withstand more eyeballs than you anticipated, even with the most optimistic forecasts? Our load-testing analysis gives you the critical data you need to know precisely how your product will behave in the real world. Massive popularity is a great problem to have and Fabric makes sure your product is ready for its moment.

Load Tests

Load Test

An example of a sample load test against a web site over the course of a day. At the current configuration of 15,000 simulated users, engineers can monitor the amount and the profile of the server’s memory usage throughout the course of the 24 hour test.

Using industry-leading tools and techniques, we can simulate realistic user patterns on a massive scale; by analyzing the data we give you an accurate picture of how well your product will handle the limelight. We can even calibrate how the traffic arrives, whether in a massive burst for a short campaign or gradually increasing traffic in a deliberate, controlled rollout.

If a product’s performance testing determines how fast and responsive your system is, our load testing considers how many active users your system can support while still performing at an acceptable level. We can expose which parts of the system can easily scale and which will bottleneck in a complex fashion when challenged with peak usage.

Our exhaustive tests go far beyond monitoring the product’s response time and burrow deep into the system itself, challenging both the front end and services server memory, the database server’s CPU, load balance traffic, and every other potential bottleneck in the product’s surrounding ecosystem. From here we can identify which parts of your system will scale linearly and which will respond evenly with increased load until the response times spike logarithmically and your database (hypothetically) collapses.
