WAPT is a load, stress and performance testing tool for web sites and applications with web Interfaces. The product is designed to produce the maximum possible load on the web site under examination. At the same time it uses various techniques to make this load as Similar as possible to the activity of real users browsing the web site in real life. This approach guarantees that if the tests are passed, the web site will show same performance characteristics in everyday usage.
Accurate simulation of real user activity WAPT uses a number of advanced techniques to simulate real load conditions. This approach is much more efficient than producing stress test by sending many identical requests to the server. WAPT creates a simulation of many different users coming from different IP addresses, each with their own parameters: cookies, input data for various page forms, name and password, connection speed and their own specific path through the site. WAPT can even simulate random time Between user clicks to make each virtual user as similar as possible to a human user.
Different types of users in one test If you want to simulate thousands of users, you do not need to specify separate behavior for each of them. Practice shows that usually site visitors can be divided into certain types, and this approach is used in WAPT. You specify behavior for each type of users and add to the test as many users types as you need. For example, users of an online shop can be divided into those who browse through the Catalog, and those brought to a certain page through a marketing campaign to purchase a specific item. Each type of users has specific path through the site and other customizable parameters. For each type you create a separate profile all this data can be specified. In the test you can use as many virtual users of each type as you need.
