          Flood IO
          Locust
          Gatling

          I have to run a multi-user load test and have test scripts developed in Gatling and Locust.

          I am planning to run the tests with Flood IO, as it allows us to create a custom grid. They support Gatling. Did anyone try Locust tests? I would prefer not to use multiple infra providers for running these tests!
