Apica ProxySniffer Overview
Apica ProxySniffer is a leading load test script creation and execution software solution designed for all load-test practitioner levels. The software automatically generates load test scripts and scenarios by pre-recording real end-user behavior scenarios. Users easily generate and run test scripts with no programming required. Results provide insight into Web application performance, infrastructure limits and more. Flexible, pay-as-you-go pricing accommodates use cases ranging from special projects to on-going, full-scale production testing activities.
Typical use case test environments include:
- Websites and portals
- Online banking and other sophisticated business applications
- B2C and B2B Web servers
- HTTP/S video servers and WebDAV servers
- Cloud-based Web services
In-depth result measurements allow users to identify performance bottlenecks and root cause, for example, at the network layer, in Web server configuration settings, or application programming. Correctly addressing bottlenecks saves organizations time and money while maintaining or improving end-user experience. Web application tuning alone typically allows as much as 50 times more Web users to be handled using the same hardware resources.
Load testers easily install a “proxy-recorder” in their browser of choice to automatically generate test scripts. Recordings include AJAX calls, Windows pop-up requests, and XML/SOAP-based Web interactions. Recorded scripts convert into performance-optimized Java code for execution by load test generators. Scripts editing is performed easily as needed prior to load test execution.
Interconnecting load-generating systems into a virtual cluster allows users to achieve almost unlimited load levels. Loads are automatically distributed and results consolidated into a single report.
Apica ProxySniffer provides users with a powerful GUI. There is no need to implement complicated regular expressions, even if extracting session parameters from HTML, JSON, and XML data. Rich GUI features save time and money while significantly simplifying load tests
preparation and workflow.
Apica ProxySniffer collects detailed real time measurement data summarized meaningful charts and tables, available for download as a customized PDF report. No other professional Web load test tool offers as much functionality for the same price.
