You use LoadUI for load testing. LoadUI uses SoapUI test cases to simulate a massive load on a tested web site or web service. It helps you check how your server works under the load and estimates its limits.

For load simulation, ReadyAPI uses virtual users. Running load tests on your local machine allows using only a few virtual users. The maximum number of virtual users you can simulate simultaneously depends on the license you have. If you need a large number of users to simulate at a time, you can run distributed load tests and distributed cloud tests.

Here is a sample view of ReadyAPI LoadUI:
