Perform Load Tests on an API Server using Apache jmeter

8:25 Node.js lesson by

The last step before deploying your new API server into production is to load test it. Load testing allows you to better understand the performance characteristics as well as forecast load and capacity. Fortunately, load testing is incredibly easy and I'll show you exactly how to create a load test plan, test the response from the API server to ensure it is responding correctly, and scale your test up to simulate as many users as needed.
