Load Impact launches Insights

Load Impact announces Insights for Next Gen load testing results analysis

Find and fix performance issues early in the development process

Stockholm, Sweden - 7 May, 2018 - Load Impact, the leading provider of SaaS solutions for load testing of websites, apps and APIs, is excited to announce its next generation load testing results analysis solution, Load Impact Insights. With Insights, you can store your test results in the cloud, analyze results and see important data trends. Insights helps you uncover and fix performance issues early in the development process. This lets you deliver better performing websites, apps and APIs faster.


"The release of Load Impact Insights is a key step in the delivery of our next generation load testing solution,” said Haakan Tylen, CEO at Load Impact. “Our goal is to make it fast and easy for DevOps teams to test the performance of their products and provide a better customer experience for their customers."




Developer-centric Load Testing

Insights works with k6, our new open source load generator. Insights and k6 have been built from the ground up to support modern DevOps workflows. k6 allows developers and testers to collaborate on load testing (aka performance testing) at different stages of the dev cycle. With k6, developers can run tests locally, behind the firewall. Local execution is ideal for developers to run load tests as part of their Continuous Integration process.

“More frequent load tests, earlier in the development cycle, enable dev and test teams to fix performance issues more quickly and efficiently, saving both time and money,” said Robin Gustafsson, CTO at Load Impact.

k6 uses ES6 JavaScript as its scripting language for load tests. JavaScript is one of the most popular programming languages in use today. The familiarity of JavaScript helps make creation of test scenarios for k6 fast and easy. The k6 test results can easily be streamed to Load Impact Insights for storage, analysis, sharing and trending.


Automated Load Testing Analysis

A performance test can generate a lot of data and it can be time consuming to manually look through it all. Load Impact Insights uses built-in algorithms, based on our extensive load testing experience, to help identify performance issues with automated analysis of your data. Cut through the noise and quickly gain insight.


The Next Generation Load Impact Load Testing Solution

Insights and k6 are two central components of our next generation developer-centric load testing solution. The other major component is distributed cloud execution of k6 tests on the loadimpact.com SaaS platform. Stay tuned for the announcement of our k6 based solution for cloud execution-- coming soon!

Dev and test teams can try out k6 and Insights for free- k6 will always be freely available (see the GitHub link below) and Insights is available through a 14-day free trial.
