Load Testing RESTful Web services (APIs) has never been easier, it takes less than a couple of minutes to configure you load test and run or schedule it with LoadFocus.com.

You can choose from the following HTTP Verbs: GET, POST, PUT, DELETE.


Read a specific resource or a collection of resources.

GET http://www.example.com/customers/12345
GET http://www.example.com/customers/12345/orders
GET http://www.example.com/buckets/sample


Update a specific resource or a collection of resources.

PUT http://www.example.com/customers/12345
PUT http://www.example.com/customers/12345/orders/98765
PUT http://www.example.com/buckets/secret_stuff


Remove/delete a specific resource by an identifier.

DELETE http://www.example.com/customers/12345
DELETE http://www.example.com/customers/12345/orders
DELETE http://www.example.com/bucket/sample


Create a new resource.

POST http://www.example.com/customers
POST http://www.example.com/customers/12345/order

You can add query parameters, headers, cookies for each API Endpoint. Compare the results of you load tests for REST APIs to have a better understanding on the differences in behaviour from each run.

Check our previous post regarding the HTTP response codes in order to have a better understanding of the responses and errors of your load test for your REST APIs.
