Help me understand and analyze the locust chart

taragrg6 profile image taragurung ・1 min read

I know how to write Locust script and make it load test. What I still need to learn.

Help me understand the resulting chart and make a good analysis out of it.

As we are generating the users and hitting the target website with the same IP, do we need to rotate the ip or it does not matter.

All sort of things a load-tester should consider for better result

Hi, I think you will need more than just locust chart to fully understand what's going on. Its good to have some other telemetry/monitoring in place.

Regarding the load generation from one IP address, it depends on your load balancing settings I guess.
