Gatling is a project that can be used as a load testing tool for analyzing and measuring the performance of a variety of services, with a focus on web applications.

It is based on a fully asynchronous architecture, which makes it one of the most efficient open source load testing tools available.[1] It supports the HTTP protocol for now,[2] there are APIs available to add support for other protocols.

Simulations are code, written thanks to a user-friendly DSL. This allows users to add custom behavior through many hooks.
