BlazeMeter vs Flood IO: What are the differences?

Developers describe BlazeMeter as "The Load Testing Platform for Developers". Simulate any user scenario for webapps, websites, mobile apps or web services. 100% Apache JMeter compatible. Scalable from 1 to 1,000,000+ concurrent users.
. On the other hand, Flood IO is detailed as "Load Testing for everyone". Flood IO is a self-service load testing platform, designed to allow anyone to easily test the performance of their website from a few hundred users, right to up to 1 million or more.

BlazeMeter and Flood IO can be categorized as "Load and Performance Testing" tools.

Some of the features offered by BlazeMeter are:

  • 100% JMeter Compatible- Take full advantage of JMeter’s scripting capabilities or let our auto-scripting feature take care of the details.
  • Scalable and Realistic- Easily scale from 100 to 300,000+ concurrent users using realistic visitor behaviour and browser simulation.
  • Start Testing in 2 Minutes- Use up to 100 dedicated servers per test. No setup or installation required. Self-service and on-demand.

On the other hand, Flood IO provides the following key features:

  • Beautiful reports, detailed analysis
  • Monitor your tests in real time
  • Supports JMeter and Gatling
Advice on BlazeMeter and Flood IO
Needs advice

Kindly suggest the best tool for generating 10Mn+ concurrent user load. The tool must support MQTT traffic, REST API, support to interfaces such as Kafka, websockets, persistence HTTP connection, auth type support to assess the support /coverage.

The tool can be integrated into CI pipelines like Azure Pipelines, GitHub, and Jenkins.

JMeter is best suited for generating user load with built-in integrations. To generate that type of load, you’ll need to choose a cloud-based solution that runs JMeter, such as BlazeMeter or RedLine13. They support JMeter for testing RESTful APIs and there is a plugin specifically designed for MQTT. You’ll want to look at subscription options and costs to run at that great a load.

There are JMeter plugins you can configure for all sorts of profiling including persistence of connections. And third-party plugins that you can add as JAR files to your load test, such as this one specifically for Kafka. JMeter also has good support for configuring authorization headers.

With regard to CI/CD integration, both support Jenkins. RedLine13 has a custom Jenkins plugin and allows for resources for tests to be sourced from GitHub and other places like AWS S3.

    Gatling is a highly capable load testing tool. It is designed for ease of use, maintainability and high performance. Out of the box, Gatling comes with excellent support of the HTTP protocol that makes it a tool of choice for load testing any HTTP server. As the core engine is actually protocol agnostic, it is perfectly possible to implement support for other protocols. For example, Gatling currently also ships JMS support.

    It is a load testing platform that brings the low cost power of the cloud to JMeter and other open source load testing tools.
    Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
