Catalyst can run load tests on your systems to understand what your current maximum capacity is and give you proactive suggestions to address any shortfall. Undertaking load testing is critical to ensure you achieve optimal performance from your systems:

  • Ensure fast load speeds;
  • Maintain a positive user experience for your learners;
  • Avoid system crashes that are disruptive, stressful and can cause reputational damage.

The value of Load Testing, Performance Profiling and Stress Testing


Load testing gives confidence metrics of a system’s reliability and real world capacity


Performance profiling helps you understand the actual impact on your system of heavy load events


Stress testing performs tests to identify a point of failure and  evaluate how a system recovers


A load test will help with capacity planning for future growth in traffic

Mitigation of Denial of Service (DOS) Attacks

Load testing is a core ingredient in the detection of, and defence against, DOS (Denial of Service) attacks on your critical infrastructure. You can use the data and reports from load testing to optimise and scale your assets.
