For developers

Developed by Arriven.

This is a simple distributed load generation client written in go. It is able to fetch simple json config from a local or remote location. The config describes which load generation jobs should be launched in parallel. There are other tools doing that. I do not intend to copy or replace them but rather provide a simple open source alternative so that users have more options. Feel free to use it in your load tests (wink-wink).

The software is provided as is under no guarantee. I will update both the repo and this doc as I go during following days (date of writing this is 26th of February 2022, third day of Russian invasion into Ukraine).
