Cheap Cloud Load Generation

All versions of Load Tester can generate load either from computers you provide, or you can automatically generate load from our Amazon EC2-based load engines with zero configuration. At the click of a button you can configure enough computers to generate up to a million simulated users, automatically billed directly to your Amazon EC2 account.

Example Cloud Prices

Cloud load testing is a small additional charge to the licensing cost of Load Tester™. The number of virtual users that can be generated from a single cloud-based load engine depends on the test case and test case configuration. The average capacity of a cloud engine is somewhere around 2,000 concurrent virtual users and 10-20 real browsers. The numbers below are meant to give an idea of the typical cost, but your actual cost may be higher or lower depending on the test cases.

Getting Started

To get started generating load from outside of your network first signup for the Amazon EC2 service, and then follow this tutorial to configure Load Tester™.

One Hour Minimum

Please note that Amazon EC2 charges by whole hours - this time includes the engine startup, test initialization and ramp-down time. Any partial hours are rounded up. For a five minute test, the charge will be for a full hour. The charge for a 55 minute test will likely be 2 hours. Please plan accordingly.
