Sometimes you want to test the maximum requests per second your webservers can deliver, as opposed to the dynamic content your application can - e.g. php, Laravel, etc.
To do that you can request only static content from the webserver, or even a very small static text file.
Here is an example with an image and robots.txt:
from locust import HttpUser, task, between class QuickstartUser(HttpUser): wait_time = between(4, 7) @task(1) def robots_fetch(self): self.client.get("/robots.txt") @task(1) def image_selection(self): self.client.get("/images/logo.jpg")
