Script your testing scenarios, automate your tests
Gatling’s code-like scripting enables you to easily maintain your testing scenarios and seamlessly automate them in your continuous delivery pipeline.
We develop our own Domain Specific Language (DSL), in order to make your scenarios readable for everyone. Scala, Java or Kotlin, the choice is yours.

Analyze and investigate your app’s bottlenecks
Gatling is a powerful tool: with only a few machines, you can simulate hundreds of thousands of requests per second on your web application and get high-precision metrics.
At the end of your test, Gatling automatically generates an exhaustive, dynamic and colorful report.
Means and averaged data are not enough: with Gatling, you get proper percentiles of your response times’ distributions. Don’t leave your slowest users behind!
