Effective Performance Testing to your Server with Autocannon

Performance testing is an expertise that is developed for a long time. In order to measure your server performance you need a tool that can efficiently simulate a lot of abilities and give you good measurements according your analysing criteria.


Autocannon NPM library gave me exactly that - that library is super easy to install and has a very simple API to work with. Within a really short amount of time you can start do performance testing to your application and get good measurements in development environment and in your performance labs, and generate complicated testing scenarios.

In this talk I will introduce Autocannon, explain how to efficiently analyse your server performance with it, and show how it helped me to understand complicated performance issues in my Node.js servers. At the end of this lecture, developers will be able to have the ability to integrate a fast and easy tool in order to measure your server performance.
