Load Impact Python SDK Build Status Coverage Status

This Python SDK provides Python APIs to the Load Impact platform for running and managing performance tests in the cloud.

Requirements

The Load Impact Python SDK works with Python versions 2.6, 2.7, 3.2 and 3.3. It has one dependency, the requests library.

Installation

Install using pip:

pip install loadimpact

PyPI PyPI

Creating an API client

To create an API client instance you need your API token. You can find it on your loadimpact.com account page.

You either enter your API token as an argument when creating the client:

import loadimpact
client = loadimpact.ApiTokenClient(api_token='YOUR_API_TOKEN_GOES_HERE')

or using environment variables:

export LOADIMPACT_API_TOKEN=YOUR_API_TOKEN_GOES_HERE
import loadimpact
client = loadimpact.ApiTokenClient()

Using an API client

List test configurations

configs = client.list_test_configs()

Get a specific test configuration

test_config_id = 1
config = client.get_test_config(test_config_id)

Create a new test configuration

from loadimpact import LoadZone

config = client.create_test_config({
    'name': 'My test configuration',
    'url': 'http://example.com/',
    'config': {
        "user_type": "sbu",
        "load_schedule": [{"users": 10, "duration": 10}],  # The unit of "duration" is minutes
        "tracks": [{
            "clips": [{
                "user_scenario_id": 1, "percent": 100  # You need a user scenario before you can create a test config, see below code snippet for how to create a user scenario
            }],
            "loadzone": LoadZone.AMAZON_US_ASHBURN
        }]
    }
})

The available load zones are as follows:

# Amazon load zones
LoadZone.AMAZON_US_ASHBURN
LoadZone.AMAZON_US_ASHBURN
LoadZone.AMAZON_US_PALOALTO
LoadZone.AMAZON_IE_DUBLIN
LoadZone.AMAZON_SG_SINGAPORE
LoadZone.AMAZON_JP_TOKYO
LoadZone.AMAZON_US_PORTLAND
LoadZone.AMAZON_BR_SAOPAULO
LoadZone.AMAZON_AU_SYDNEY

# Rackspace load zones
LoadZone.RACKSPACE_US_CHICAGO
LoadZone.RACKSPACE_US_DALLAS
LoadZone.RACKSPACE_UK_LONDON
LoadZone.RACKSPACE_AU_SYDNEY

Update an existing test configuration

config = client.get_test_config(1)
config.name = "Changed name"
config.update()

or

config = client.get_test_config(1)
config.update({'name': "Changed name"})

Delete config

config = client.get_test_config(1)
config.delete()

Deleting data stores and user scenarios is done in the same way, calling a delete method on the resource object.

Run test and stream results to STDOUT

from loadimpact import TestResult

test_config = client.get_test_config(1)
test = test_config.start_test()
stream = test.result_stream([
    TestResult.result_id_from_name(TestResult.LIVE_FEEDBACK),
    TestResult.result_id_from_name(TestResult.ACTIVE_USERS,
                                   load_zone_id=world_id),
    TestResult.result_id_from_name(TestResult.REQUESTS_PER_SECOND,
                                   load_zone_id=world_id),
    TestResult.result_id_from_name(TestResult.USER_LOAD_TIME,
                                   load_zone_id=world_id)])

for data in stream(poll_rate=3):
    print data[TestResult.result_id_from_name(TestResult.LIVE_FEEDBACK)]
    time.sleep(3)

Create a new user scenario

load_script = """
local response = http.get("http://example.com')
log.info("Load time: "..response.total_load_time.."s")
client.sleep(5)
"""
user_scenario = client.create_user_scenario({
    'name': "My user scenario",
    'load_script': load_script
})

Validating a user scenario

from loadimpact import UserScenarioValidation

user_scenario_id = 1
user_scenario = client.get_user_scenario(user_scenario_id)
validation = user_scenario.validate()
stream = validation.result_stream()

print("Starting validation #%d..." % (validation.id,))
for result in stream:
    if 'stack_trace' in result:
        print('[%s]: %s @ line %s'
              % (result['timestamp'], result['message'],
                 result['line_number']))
        print('Stack trace:')
        for filename, line, function in result['stack_trace']:
            print('\t%s:%s in %s' % (function, line, filename))
    else:
        print('[%s]: %s' % (result['timestamp'], result['message']))
print("Validation completed with status '%s'"
      % (UserScenarioValidation.status_code_to_text(validation.status)))

Uploading a data store (CSV file with parameterization data)

For more information regarding parameterized data have a look at this knowledgebase article.

from loadimpact import DataStore

fil_obj = open('data.csv', 'r')
data_store = client.create_data_store({
    'name': "My data store",
    'separator': 'comma',
    'delimiter': 'double'
}, file_obj)
while not data_store.has_conversion_finished():
    time.sleep(3)
print("Data store conversion completed with status '%s'"
      % (DataStore.status_code_to_text(data_store.status)))

Adding a data store to a user scenario

user_scenario = client.get_user_scenario(1)
data_store = client.get_data_store(1)
user_scenario.data_stores.append(data_store.id)
user_scenario.update()
