Does HeadSpin support load testing? How does it work?

A: Yes, our "load testing" tool is for running HTTP or WebSocket requests against a customer's server backend. The idea is that virtual agents are spun up (conceptually as if there are multiple users) that send requests to a back end to induce load and understand the performance of how quickly/poorly the server fulfills requests with responses. Check out our blog post on load testing before launching apps.

What test automation frameworks do you support?

A: HeadSpin supports over 30 automation testing frameworks and all the major frameworks like Appium, Selenium, Espresso, XCUITests, XCTests, UI Automator, EarlGrey, FitNesse, JUnit, TestNG, Experitest, KIF, and Calabash.

How does HeadSpin performance testing work?

A: Network traffic, client-side performance stats, and video are captured from a device during a performance test and these inputs are fed into HeadSpin’s AI-based issue detection engine. This generates a Performance Session report that identifies bottlenecks and issues during the test session.

Can HeadSpin identify client-side performance bottlenecks?

Yes, HeadSpin tracks user experience and performance metrics on real devices running your app and use an AI-based Issue detection engine to identify root cause. Check out our blog post on how to identify client-side performance bottlenecks.
