Flood IO is a distributed grid of semi-autonomous, loosely coupled nodes hosted on AWS infrastructure. They run different testing tools including JMeter or Gatling and collate results in near real time across multiple geographic regions including the US, EU and Asia Pacific.
We advise a planning figure of 1,000 threads per node, depending on test tool and test plan complexity, although we have benchmarked up to 10,000 threads per node. Since the answer depends we welcome you to shakeout your load testing scripts on our shared grid node.
Put simply, no. For our paid accounts, run as many tests as you like within any time frame, start, stop as you please, scale out or back with your grid nodes. Truly flexible and affordable testing.
Yes. Your free account can use our shared grid for 5 minute tests. No credit card details are required. This is perfect for those wanting to try out Flood IO or just shakeout their load testing scripts without cost.
We aggregate results to the nearest 15 second interval.
Grid nodes are invoiced per node per hour (or closest 15 minutes) On Demand, from the time a node is started until it is stopped by you. On Demand nodes use our advertised prices. Host Your Own grids use AWS advertised prices for your instance type and region from your AWS account at cost price.
Each plan includes an allowance of grid hours on demand included per month. If you use more than the allowed plan hours in a month, they will be billed the overage which is $12 per node per hour with a minimum of 15 minutes. Host Your Own grids do not count towards this total. Unused hours do not roll over each month.
You can change your account plan at any stage during your subscription. Plan changes are effective immediately for the current month. Subscription costs are prorated.
Subscriptions automatically renew on the same day that you upgrade to a paid plan. For example, if you upgrade on the 25th of the month, you will be charged on the 25th of every subsequent month that you remain a Flood IO customer.
Results for paid subscriptions are kept indefinitely. Results for non paid accounts will expire after 12 months.
