Our community contributed locustfile examples directory.


Community locustfiles

LoadForge uses the load testing application to generate load from it's clusters. We support custom locustfiles for advanced load testing, and, have a community driven directory of examples for you to use.

Please consider contributing to the Git repo that drives this directory.

To use these you can copy the code section into your "locustfile" setting when creating or editing a Test.

For more help on Tests please see our official documentation. Logged in users can also use our wizard to generate a locustfile, or you can record your browser steps.
