Load testing is key to any good system performance. Even the most advanced systems may break under certain loads, and testing is one of the best ways to find out what problems may arise during the busiest time. 

While load testing has been performed for decades and has advanced a lot, it still has flaws. Artificial Intelligence and machine learning are fast infiltrating into technologies and challenging more and more tasks to become automated. That is why new load testing approaches need to be employed. 

By working with many cybersecurity companies, we have identified the main problems companies come across while testing system load. And we have a solution! 

To prepare this white paper, we have closely worked with load testing experts and residential proxy specialists. This extensive document aims to answer all the questions cybersecurity companies may have about load testing with our Residential Proxies.

Oxylabs proxy network looks really useful as a way of spreading out traffic generation for a load test so the target system can’t detect that the traffic is actually artificial.
