Web Load Testing Tool Launched

Dotcom-Monitor has just added an external web site load stress testing tool to its suite of executive class website and network monitoring services.

Very few website monitoring companies offer load testing tools or services. Dotcom-Monitor’s service offers businesses the opportunity to customize each test based on their individual needs. Agents positioned around the globe simulate real users, performing whatever application is being stress tested, such as a shopping cart, form, forum, etc., or multiple applications at once.

Dotcom-Monitor’s web load testing service differs from most stress test tools because it is external. Most tools are internal, monitoring from very close to a company’s web server. External agents, such as Dotcom-Monitor’s on three continents, more closely simulate real user behavior.
