Browser-based Load Testing

Innovation May 26, 2016

Collect and analyze end-user experience metrics with browser-based load testing.


We are proud to announce that we now support running real browser load testing alongside with regular HTTP load testing. We have integrated the JMeter Selenium WebDriver to our platform. It’s now possible to run JMeter load tests as well as Selenium webdriver tests simultaneously. Collect both network metrics like response time and end-use experience metrics like browser load time. Octoperf removes the pain of load testing your app with Selenium with our Saas integration.
