Server Monitoring

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.42.1, last modified on November 28, 2022

When running load tests, you create a load that should be handled by the server in a specific way. You can use ReadyAPI to track various metrics of the web servers you run your tests against, and check if they perform as you expected. To do this, you use the Monitoring page.

ReadyAPI gathers all available metrics from tested web servers during a test run. ReadyAPI displays the most important metrics as graphs at the bottom of the page in real time during the test run. On the Statistics page, you can view all gathered data. Usually, it is all the available server metrics and statistics of the test, such as the number of simulated users and server response time. Use these metrics to find performance bottlenecks of your server and fix them.

Requirements

To monitor server metrics, you need a ReadyAPI Performance license. If you do not have it, you can either request it on our web site or start a trial.
