Overview - Distributed Load Testing on AWS


Many Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers want to accelerate time to release by minimizing application bugs and the time required for testing in a continuous integration and delivery development model.

Software test automation tools enable you to simplify testing and reduce time to release by automating functional tests for your applications. But, some testing automation tools can require you to provision additional infrastructure to run tests, and can be difficult and costly to set up.

To help make it easier for customers to automate application testing, AWS offers the Distributed Load Tester on AWS. Distributed Load Testing is a solution that leverages AWS Fargate to run containers to easily create and simulate thousands of connected users generating a select number of transactions per second without having to provision servers. With this solution, you can understand how your application will perform at scale and at load, and identify bottlenecks before you release your application.


You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this solution. The total cost for running this solution depends on the number of load tests you run and the amount of data you use as part of your tests. Prices are subject to change. For full details, see the pricing webpage for each AWS service you will be using in this solution.
