Why FloodRunner?

FloodRunner solves the key problem where users have created Flood Element tests that they want to run on a schedule. These tests are generally written in order to perform load testing but FloodRunner allows you to use these tests to perform continuous monitoring of your applications.

How does it work?

FloodRunner allows you to upload your test through a simple form and then view the results of your tests.

The process to get your monitoring started is really simple:

  1. Navigate to and sign in using GitHub or Google. Currently we are in Beta and the platform is free with certain limitations.
