Given the importance of test management in their large enterprise customers, Tricentis qTest was responsible to make sure their application could scale under large loads. Given many other solutions on the market were known for crashing systems they integrated to (such as JIRA), there was a need to get accurate data on these scenarios. While Tricentis qTest had long maintained their own test environment for running these large scale JMeter tests, the maintenance was starting to bog down the fast moving agile teams.
QASymphony and Tricentis merging together provided the perfect opportunity for QASymphony to use Flood. With Flood, the team was able to spin up tests with tens of thousands of concurrent users in minutes with no maintenance required. Their existing JMeter scripts were uploaded within a matter of minutes. And best of all, they could easily generate rich reports to share with customers to show the exact details of the load tests they executed against each build of qTest.
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.
