Have you ever wondered how many concurrent users your application could handle? Since I began writing Scala code I wanted to know how “scalable” it really is. You don’t want to be embarrassed when your awesome product gets some traction and stops working with only a few concurrent users. And when it does stop working you want it to recover. This is where load and stress testing is required. And what better way to do this than with a tool written in Scala? This blog post I will introduce the basic usage of Gatling.
Update 19-04-2013: Updated all examples to Gatling 1.4.7.
