User-Centric Load Testing
Make sure your production infrastructure is ready for your next high-traffic event. Keynote delivers external traffic that most accurately represents real user behavior.
Global testing network
Our purpose-built, global testing infrastructure drives realistically modeled traffic load to your site from points around the world and monitors performance in real-time. Our 100% cloud-based solution requires no on-premise applications or in-house technical expertise.
External load testing
The only way to prove that your infrastructure is ready for external traffic is to test it with external traffic. Otherwise, you risk catastrophic failures caused by something as simple as an incorrectly configured firewall or load balancer. We've saved our customers hundreds of thousands of dollars by demonstrating that a simple configuration change can increase capacity without adding additional hardware.
Real mobile devices
Keynote’s mobile load testing combines realistic delivery of user demand with the industry’s most accurate mobile performance monitoring, based on DeviceAnywhere technology.
You’ll finally be able to create peak load and observe the impact on real devices and carrier networks.
Keynote’s exclusive user behavior modeling delivers test traffic that intelligently acts like real-world visitors to your site, ensuring your site will be ready for any big event.
Dynamic diversity on a massive scale
Keynote's exclusive user behavior modeling can generate hundreds of thousands of unique users per test, each one reacting dynamically to conditions it encounters as the test is underway – just like a real site visitor would.
Exclusive user abandonment feature
Test users who encounter errors or slow pages accumulate frustration as “dissatisfiers.” Just as in the real world, when a user reaches their frustration threshold, they abandon your site, failing to convert into revenue. Monitor the cost of abandonment in real-time and use the data to make fact-based decisions about capacity investments.
Realistic arrival rate load
Keynote's arrival rate behaves the way real users do: starting new sessions on their own schedule, regardless of how long existing sessions are taking to complete. Other solutions recycle a pool of concurrent users at each load level. If your site slows down, fewer sessions start and they start further apart. Keynote load testing begins new sessions at the targeted rate no matter how fast or slow your site performs. The result? Greater confidence that your site can handle more users taking longer to complete sessions when revenue is on the line.
Efficient test coverage
Highly prioritized paths are tested under varying load levels to evaluate capacity, endurance and the ability to handle large traffic surges, while lower-priority paths are tested using a random “walk” technique.
Randomization of lower-priority paths provides greater test coverage without requiring scripting for each individual path.
Rapid Deployment & Expertise
From the most pressing event-focused deadlines to ongoing testing, Keynote experts can help you quickly set up and execute an external load testing plan.
Proven professional expertise
Keynote consultants average 8 years of proven experience in performance testing. We provide all test planning, script development, reporting and initial test runs leveraging the Keynote load testing platform. As experts in their field, you can be confident the right questions have been asked and the right tests run.
Event-focused load testing
Whether you are preparing your website for Black Friday, the Superbowl, or any other event, being able to perform readiness testing on your production infrastructure is critical to preventing an outage and directly impacting revenue. Keynote can help set up even the most complex testing plans in days.
Year round load testing
Discover hidden performance issues within your application and infrastructure architecture year round. Functional testing and lab-based performance testing have their place, but only full-scale load testing from the outside-in can rule out catastrophic performance regressions when changes to application or infrastructure are made.
Keynote has invested infrastructure, processes and training for deploying properly distributed load tests across our Akamai platform. Only a handful of load testing providers recognize that all major e-Commerce customers use a CDN provider and cloud solutions, and therefore a proper load test also needs a true cloud strategy. Keynote is one of these top providers and helped Akamai pioneer the strategy several years ago.

The flexibility and partnership Keynote provided helped us ensure that we were successful in launching our site on time. Their consultants have been very good in terms of knowledge, skills and competency. They have given us a level of insight and visibility into different parts of our site that we can’t get from any other source.
