ITRex is a software development and consulting company that “creates and transforms products and enterprises to drive growth.” They wrote a blog post: Why ITRex chose RedLine13 as the primary load testing tool.
Their post walks through the advantages and then gives some examples of ITRex customers.
One customer was an e-commerce platform owner, struggling with their response time and downtimes, so their bounce rates went up and sales decreased. They used RedLine13 to run JMeter tests on AWS servers. They configured the tool in a way that allowed them to simulate the behavior of thousands of users in real locations for more accurate testing results. In less than an hour, they got a comprehensive test results report and determined the platform’s response time, the number of users the platform could handle without service degradation, and the load at which the application started throwing errors.
Another customer was an online photography platform for a company that planned to increase the number of users from around 1,000 to 40,000 and needed to make sure that the system handled the load. They used RedLine13 to test the application and the alternative servers simulating tens of thousands of users in real-life locations. They determined that the current server crashed with around 3,000 active users and provided recommendations on how to improve the app performance.
As for the costs, in one example they said that they carried out 25 tests over four days with a load of 10 to 8,000 users for a total cost of $2.53. Another good reason why ITRex chose RedLine13.
RedLine13 will help us test fast while retaining ultimate test results reliability.ITRex
