The Role of Recording in Load Testing Tools

Alex Podelko

Typically when you load test a website it calls some back end APIs, but the APIs follow a certain pattern (in the URL or POST/PUT body content) that varies if you go by a data driven (or random data generation) route. If a lot of users visit the website, a lot of calls are made to the APIs but with different data/ID parameters. If a single webpage or website transaction calls 20 APIs that’s ok, and manageable.
