    The complete load testing platform. Everything you need for production-grade load tests. Serverless & distributed. Load test with Playwright. Load test HTTP APIs, GraphQL, WebSocket, and more. Use any Node.js module.

    Usually, I would let organic users be my load test. However, I am working on a project that has an anticipated load on a new-to-my-team stack, so I'm looking into ways to load test.

    I've seen tools like k6 (https://k6.io/), Artillery (https://www.artillery.io), and JMeter (https://jmeter.apache.org/).

    I've been using Artillery, but it's hard to visualize the results.
