Overall Satisfaction with k6 (formerly Load Impact)

Did implementation of k6 go as expected?


Would you buy k6 again?


[k6 (formerly Load Impact)] is well suited to run performance automated suites and to run stress tests, spike tests and load tests[.] We can run tests from recorded [sessions] but we cannot run npm modules and we cannot run nod js libs[.]
