Open source and SaaS for engineering teams
Test early and continuously—break the QA silo in performance testing
Backend and frontend engineers prevent regressions when running performance tests.
Test scalability to improve your reliability targets. Test SLOs and avoid SLA breaches.
Shift left and collaborate with developers for effective and continuous testing.
Scale from solo developers to large enterprises
Migrate from local tests to the cloud using the same script for both environments.
k6 run script.jsLocal
kubectl apply -f k6.yamlk8s
k6 cloud script.jsCloud
k6 Open Source is designed for load testing. Extensible to support other types of testing.
Verify that applications can handle the expected traffic. Adapt your testing: stress tests, peak tests, soak tests, etc.
Mix browser and API testing—interact with real browsers and collect frontend metrics to get a holistic user view.
Simulate real-world traffic in your chaos experiments. Inject system failures in your k6 tests.
Traditional synthetic/ping testing is not enough anymore. Reuse your k6 tests to ensure availability in production.
Test how cloud-native systems scale. Isolate bottlenecks. Plan and provision infrastructure capacity.
Test continuously to track changes in performance and reliability. Prevent software regressions from reaching production.
@k6_io thank you for creating an amazing open source product. I wrote my own thread ripper for load testing and you just saved my socks with the integration tools you have by default. Anyone looking to do load testing highly recommend using k6. It also reminds me of snowboarding.
It's time for me to once again sing the praises of @k6_io. If you've ever written a load test I think you'll likely agree it is the grungiest of grungy tasks. k6 makes it fun. It's like Greasemonkey for load testing. Cannot recommend enough.
I've toyed with a few load testing tools over the years, but only today tried @k6_io, and wow, is it pleasant to use. Haven't tried the hosted version, but for quick and easy CLI stuff, absolutely wonderful.
I love products like @k6_io - very technical and geeky domain, yet the product is extremely user friendly and you can understand and start using it within *seconds*, not even minutes. Great job.
