Load testing the Blockchain Network

This pattern is continuation of the Leveraging cache and MessagingQueue to scale Blockchain Network . In this pattern, we are going run java programs to load test our blockchain network i.e. to send request to blockchain network and to check for results of request execution. MongoDb is used to keep track of statistics for the load testing.

Included Components

  • Hyperledger Fabric
  • Docker
  • Hyperledger Fabric SDK for node.js
  • Mongodb
  • Java

Application Workflow Diagram

Application Workflow

  • Run the ExecutionApp and ResultGenerator java program in separate terminals
  • View the execution results in mongodb


  • Maven


docker run -p 27017:27017 -d mongo
  • Issue a git clone
  • Verify the executionURL, resultURL urls from and
  • Make sure your are connecting to correct mongodb instance and dbName are same in and
  • Open terminal and run the following commands to setup the project
mvn compile
  • Now run the test result loader Application
mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="secretApp.testApp.ResultGenerator"
  • In a new terminal,run the execution cli app
mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass="secretApp.testApp.ExecutionApp"
  • If required, you can scale the number of task execution containers by navigating back to the network directory and running the following command:
docker-compose -p "fitcoin" up -d --scale fitcoin-backend=<No of containers>

For eg:

docker-compose -p "fitcoin" up -d --scale fitcoin-backend=3

Note: To view the results you can download robomongo/ Robo 3T. Currently, ExecutionApp is configured to send enroll request for user types, query request for user state and invoke request for generating fitcoins which can be modified according to the requirements.
