NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

We are strong believers in in-line automated performance testing, although open source tools in this space have been somewhat limited to date. Locust is a firm favorite that provides the ability to write tests in Python, with good support for running multiple injectors, basic statistics generation, and a useful web dashboard. Its approach to web load testing focuses more on the simulation of users than just generating hits per second. We would typically recommend Locust over and above older tools such as JMeter or Grinder.
