    Test Automation Made Simple

    As we are using Karate DSL for API testing, a straightforward choice would be to go with Gatling, as it nicely integrates with Karate DSL, and we can reuse our existing tests for performance testing.

  • Grafana

    The open and composable observability and data visualization platform. Visualize metrics, logs, and traces from multiple sources like Prometheus, Loki, Elasticsearch, InfluxDB, Postgres and many more.

    I just got the task, to advise on which performance testing framework to use for our product. As we already use Grafana, the suggestion coming from our Dev Lead, to examine whether it would be a good fit or not.

  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • Gatling

    Modern Load Testing as Code

    As we are using Karate DSL for API testing, a straightforward choice would be to go with Gatling, as it nicely integrates with Karate DSL, and we can reuse our existing tests for performance testing.
