The major claims to fame for Lexicon are scalability and speed. Namely, this framework is able to support up to a million transactions per second, with low latency. Given these claims need to be backed up before customers would adopt this technology, Ternio hired a 3rd party firm to audit these claims. A successful audit would require putting the Ternio blockchain under a simulated load with up to 1 million transactions per second.
Nikolas Behar was hired in as the independent consultant to create Ternio’s 3rd party audit. With Flood, Ternio was able to leverage JMeter to simulate millions of users with ease. Each test took only minutes to set up using Flood’s massive scale in AWS. At the end of the audit, Lexicon’s claims of scalability and low latency were confirmed with Flood’s easy to view analysis reporting.After completing the test, Nikolas was able to confirm that “Ternio’s architecture is configured in a way that is designed to scale in a technically sound way well beyond that of its existing test limits.”
Apache JMeter™ is a widely used, well known, and accessible, open source load testing tool. JMeter simulates load at the protocol level, and while it focuses on web-based applications, it also supports many other protocols.
Flood Grid handles deploying load generators such as JMeter or Element to the cloud at the press of a button, so that you can focus on results.
