Want to find out which pieces of your API break down under load first, so you know how you’ll need to scale before your systems catch fire? Load testing answers this question without subjecting the system under test to live, potentially cranky, users. We’ll look at a few FOSS tools for load testing, including new, more advanced tools that allow for simulating an entire user flow, rather than merely hammering a single endpoint. Along the way, we’ll mix in a dose of profiling goodness to drill down into API performance issues, so we can fix the root of our performance problems before the issues rear their heads on production.
