  • Prepare for traffic surges - run load tests to help prepare your API or service for upcoming peak traffic
  • Run load tests in CI/CD to catch and prevent performance regressions before they cause issues for users
  • Profile and debug performance issues such as memory leaks, high tail latency caused by GC pauses or high CPU usage, or misconfigured resource pools
  • Run smoke tests continuously against production to catch issues (also known as production scripted testing or synthetic monitoring)
  • Designed for modern web APIs, headless CMS and e-commerce systems, IoT backends, real-time services, and microservice architectures
  • Test internal microservices and components as well as external endpoints
  • Scale out and run your tests from your own AWS account with ease


  • Test ANY stack: Load test HTTP, WebSocket,, Kinesis, HLS, and more
  • Scenarios: Support for complex scenarios to test multi-step interactions in your API or web app (great for ecommerce, transactional APIs, game servers etc).
  • Load testing & smoke testing: reuse the same scenario definitions to run performance tests or functional tests on your API or backend.
  • Detailed performance metrics: get detailed performance metrics (response time, TTFB, transactions per second, concurrency, throughput). Track custom metrics with high precision (histograms, counters and rates)
  • Scirptable: write custom logic in JS, using any of the thousands of useful
  • Batteries-included: out-of-the-box integrations with external monitoring systems (Datadog, InfluxDB, Honeygcomb, Lightstep and more), per-URL metrics, file uploads, SSL auth, fuzz testing, and more!
  • Extensible: write custom reporters, custom plugins, and custom engines, or customize VU scenarios and behavior
  • Cloud-native: built for the cloud from day one - run distributed load tests from your own AWS account with ease
  • and more! HTML reports, nice CLI, parameterization with CSV files, CICD integrations

Plant Some Trees!

We have planted over 2400 new trees with the help of Artillery community. That's a small forest! We're aiming to grow that to a large forest - we're thinking 100,000 trees would be neat.

If you've enjoyed using Artillery and would like to help us out, add your tree to the forest. 🌲🌳🌴 Feel free to drop us a line to let us know too! 💚
