Core concepts


A run on LoadForge is an individual execution of a Test template. It's then stored for you to analyze at any time in the future.

To start a Run you must have at least one Test added. Then go to the Tests page and click the "Run" button to begin testing the service.

You may launch runs either via the user interface, or via the easy-to -se API. This is useful when automating tests as you can also receive results (like total performance, latency, error rates) via the API as a part of your build or release processes.


A run lasts for 5 minutes by default. During this time you will receive live statistics and then upon completion the cloud servers on your account for the test will be removed, and the final results tallied and offered to you in the full Report option.

LoadForge allows runs between 2 and 10 minutes per test for basic and free users, up to 30 minutes for essential users and up to 12 hours for premium users.

Multiple Runs

You may run multiple runs at once to test different components or to start a run as one is finishing. Remember that each run needs its own worker servers to execute.
