Scripting your load test

How to script your first load test (without scripting) with Test Builder

We support a variety of scripting tools: JMeter, Gatling, Flood Element, and Selenium. All of these tools are open-source, and you can use one or more of them with Flood.

You can click on the links below to get started with them, or you can keep reading this walkthrough to continue with a simpler method that doesn't require scripting.

Test Builder

The easiest way to get started is with a simple interface we've developed called Test Builder. Test Builder is an interface we’ve built that allows you to run a load test without needing to learn how to code. You enter details like the URL to be tested and some basic parameters, and the Test Builder creates a JMeter script for you under the covers.

We'll use Test Builder as an example for creating your load test here.

Creating a stream

Log into your Flood account. You can sign up for Flood if you don't have an account yet.

Click Streams and then click Create Stream.

This should take you to the Design page, where you can define your load test plan.
