Cost-effective Distributed Load Testing using JMeter and Akamai

Presented by

Akmal Shukri, Solutions Engineer, Akamai

About this talk

IT teams responsible for mission-critical applications are often charged with the challenge of ensuring traffic spikes do not impact their service. This has been a challenging act as load testing with application environment is often inaccurate, and overprovisioning infrastructure without understanding capacity and performance can result in unnecessary costs. However, these issues can be overcome with better load testing set-up. Combined with cost-effective compute and egress, it is possible to perform extensive testing without increasing costs. Learn how to use Akamai CloudTest to validate performance at scale from hundreds to millions of virtual users, in both test and production environments. We'll also share how to deploy popular open-source load testing tools like JMeter and Locust on Akamai Cloud Computing services. You’ll learn how your key business functionality behaves under heavy loads and if your infrastructure scales well under stress. Join this session and discover: - How to optimize your application performance - How to reduce overprovisioning costs - Best practices for load testing in both test and production environments - How to achieve distributed testing while keeping cost low
