What is Load Test Automation?

Load test automation is the act of automating the execution of a load test.

Why would I want to automate load testing?

Running load tests should be done early and often during development. However, it can be a time consuming task, and thus having it automated can save a lot of time.

How does LoadUI support automating load tests?

LoadUI allows you to take your saved load tests, and run them from the command line. Using the LoadUI command line runner, you can run LoadUI tests from just about any task scheduler, or as an integrated part of your build process. You can even customize the test execution by using command line switches to override the test limits, which Agents to distribute the test to, and several other options.
