about this example

Load testing is essential to ensure applications can handle high traffic. This example illustrates:

  • Load Testing Structure: Depicts a distributed load testing environment set up within Google Kubernetes Engine.
  • Component Interaction: Shows how the test operator interacts with the system through a web interface and how load metrics are collected.
  • Service Architecture: Details the configuration of locust-master and worker pods, and their communication with internal services.
  • Traffic Management: Explains how REST traffic is managed and tested against a sample application in App Engine.

When to use
  • Performance Testing: For setting up an environment to simulate traffic and test the scalability of web applications.
  • Infrastructure Education: To educate engineering teams on the architecture of a distributed load testing setup in the cloud.
  • Continuous Deployment Pipelines: As part of a CI/CD pipeline to ensure performance benchmarks are met before release.
How to use
  1. Start editing: Duplicate the example file and double-click on the diagram.
  2. Customize diagram: Add/modify nodes, groups, and relationships using a diagram-as-code syntax to align with your specific load testing requirements.
  3. Customize layout: Drag elements on the diagram directly on the canvas for optimal placement and readability.
  4. Collect feedback: Share the file with your team for collaborative editing and feedback to refine the load testing strategy.
