Artillery is a modern, powerful & easy-to-use load testing and functional testing toolkit. Use it to ship scalable backends, APIs & services that stay performant & resilient under high load.

Artillery has a strong focus on developer happiness & ease of use, and a batteries-included philosophy.

Use Cases

  • Peak traffic testing - ensure your API, e-commerce backend, IoT service can handle max traffic
  • Pre-launch load testing - building a new API or service? test it before launch
  • Continuous performance testing - run load tests in CI/CD to stop performance regressions being shipped to prod
  • Profile & debug performance issues - run load tests to profile & fix high CPU usage, extensive GC pauses, memory leaks, and misconfigured resource pools
  • Semantic monitoring - run realistic user scenarios against production APIs continuously and alert on wrong responses or errors


  • Multiple protocols: Load test HTTP, WebSocket,, Kinesis, HLS and more.
  • Scenarios: Support for complex scenarios to test multi-step interactions in your API or web app (great for ecommerce, transactional APIs, game servers etc).
  • Load testing & Functional testing: reuse the same scenario definitions to run performance tests or functional tests on your API or backend.
  • Performance metrics: get detailed performance metrics (latency, requests per second, concurrency, throughput).
  • Scriptable: write custom logic in JS, using any of the thousands of useful npm modules.
  • Integrations: statsd support out of the box for real-time reporting (integrate with Datadog, Librato, InfluxDB etc).
  • Extensible: write custom reporters, custom plugins, custom protocol engines etc.
  • and more! HTML reports, nice CLI, parameterization with CSV files.

  • Artillery Pro for teams: Artillery Pro is a self-hosted self-service load & functional testing solution for your team. Run large-scale distributed tests from your own AWS account with ECS or Fargate; use in CI/CD pipelines; integrate with existing AWS security & compliance controls (IAM, VPC, cost allocation).
  • For training, custom integrations, and performance consulting services see our professional services page.
