What is Load Testing?

Load testing is a critical step in ensuring your web application can handle real-world traffic patterns. It helps you identify performance bottlenecks, optimize resource allocation, and ensure a seamless user experience.

Why Choose Goose?

  • Fast and Scalable: Built with Rust, Goose is designed for speed and scalability.

  • Flexible and Customizable: Supports simple and complex load tests, tailored to mimic real-world user behavior.

  • Realistic User Behavior Simulation: Goes beyond just sending requests; simulates user behaviors like logging in, filling out forms, and navigating through your application.
