Megaload is a scalable, high performance load testing tool written in Erlang that provides automatic deployment on cloud environments allowing simulating a massive amount of load to stress your system. Its architecture allows adding new protocols and features with a small effort and can be customised extensively.
In this talk, we will discuss how to approach the load testing of web services using Megaload and we will look at the challenges and lessons learned from writing a load testing tool in Erlang.
