What is Tricentis Flood?

Tricentis Flood is a cloud-based platform for load testing that assists teams in determining how their applications respond to loads that are distributed across the world. This solution makes load testing more accessible to developers and testers by lowering the complexity typically connected with it. By adding load testing into their CI/CD pipelines, teams can start testing the performance of their application components as they develop and continuously track the effects on the system's overall performance.

Tricentis Flood enables DevOps load testing. In addition, it enables DevTest teams to get quick and continuous performance feedback. Because Tricentis Flood and Tosca are integrated, you can use the same scriptless tests you use for functional testing to perform load testing. In addition to supporting conventional protocol-level load-testing techniques, Tricentis Flood also enables testers to do load tests at the browser level without becoming bogged down in technical specifics.

As new features are being developed, teams can begin load testing them. Without having to deal with the headaches of requesting, setting, or managing performance resources on premises or in the cloud, a developer or tester can rapidly produce millions of globally dispersed requests per second from their local PC.

Tricentis Flood distributes test plans over widely accessible cloud servers using open-source tools like JMeter, Gatling, and Selenium. Additionally, it enables you to instantly "flood" any HTTP endpoint.

Tricentis Flood Features

Tricentis Flood has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

  • The Browser Level User method reduces script generation, maintenance, and complexity overheads.
  • Tosca Flood integration, enabling seamless load testing for both UI and API-based test scenarios.
  • Enhanced economy of scale with cloud-based load generation across multiple global geographic locations.
  • Tool-agnostic, with the ability to integrate with new tools as they become available.
  • Cluster-less, shared-nothing architecture, which allows users to scale up for very large tests without the bottlenecks that more traditional setups experience.
  • Real-time reports on a shareable, intuitive, and interactive dashboard.
  • Long-term data storage allows you to evaluate performance over time.
  • Test-friendly pricing, where you pay for the infrastructure you utilize, not per test or per simulated user.

Tricentis Flood Benefits

There are many benefits to implementing Tricentis Flood. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

  • Simple methods for defining, creating, and maintaining load tests.
  • On-demand platform for executing load tests at scale.
  • Analysis and visualization of results in real time.
  • Continuous monitoring of performance across time.

Tricentis Flood was previously known as Flood IO.

Easy to maintain and the Java support is good, but the performance needs to be improved
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is the support for Java, where we can quickly code what we need."
  • "The performance of the tool needs to improve."

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the support for Java, where we can quickly code what we need.

it is quite easy to maintain.

The integration with other tools is good.

What needs improvement?

The performance of the tool needs to improve. Part of the problem is that this is a cloud-based deployment in a firewall setting, and our application will also be online. This means that there is an inside firewall and an outside firewall, so it is a different IP between connecting and executing it. Sometimes we feel that it is this aspect of the environment that is delaying the responses, rather than the actual application.

The reporting needs to be improved. They should include some additional reporting components because compared to other tools, like Sovereign, it does less.

Integration with monitoring tools, such as SolarWinds, needs to be improved. We can get performance testing information into our monitoring tools, but we can't map information about monitoring to the performance testing.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no trouble with crashes, although we have to keep monitoring the loads because every time we are planning to increase one, you have to notify them and then they will increase it. If we exceed the limit then it can get stuck.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Across multiple users, this is a scalable solution. However, across multiple platforms, we have to go in a different direction for that.

How are customer service and support?

I think that technical support from the vendor is good. I would rate their service a four out of five.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also have experience with Sovereign and JMeter. The reporting capabilities in these tools are better.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is complex.

What other advice do I have?

All of the features in this product are good.

My advice for anybody who is considering Tricentis Flood is that it is good for end-customer facing applications. However, it is purely result-oriented, as opposed to reporting-oriented.  It is good from a user's standpoint, but not fro ma senior management perspective.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud
