Test the load capabilities of your software using independent Amazon ECS on AWS Fargate containers.

Customize application tests

Customize your application tests by creating custom JMeter scripts.

Automate load tests

Schedule load tests to either automatically begin at a specified date or on recurring dates.

View live test data

The solution's web console contains an option to view live data for a running test.
