node-stress

Light weight Node.js module to apply specified load on a REST API and retrieve the response statistics. I gives the counts of good,bad and errored responses along with the time taken to process them all.

Installation

npm install node-stress

Usage

var stress = require("node-stress");

stress({

        host: url, //strip off the starting http:// same as in case of node http request
        port: port,
        path: path


    },RequestCount,callback);

Example

var stress = require("node-stress");

stress({

        host: 'rest.api.url',
        port: 80,
        path: '/getData.php?command=1'


    },RequestCount,function(data){

        console.log("Requests Sent : "+data.ReqStarted);

        if(data.response.GoodResponse)
            console.log("Good Response (200 OK) : ", data.response.GoodResponse);

        if(data.response.BadResponse)
            console.log("Bad Response : ", data.response.BadResponse);

        if(data.response.ErrorResponse) {
            console.log("Error Response : ", data.response.ErrorResponse);
            console.log(JSON.stringify(data.response.ErrorList,undefined,4));
        }
        console.log("Test Stats : "+data.fact);

});

Parameters

host - the url of the REST API after stripping down the starting http://. For more info check the input parameter for the node sample http request.

port - port at which the REST API runs

path - path to the page we are sending request

RequestCount - the load to be applied in number (eg:1000)
