The BlazeMeter module provides Drupal users a way to seamlessly test their website or application for performance. Use next generation cloud testing tools without having to master scripting or the need to become a performance expert. To perform a comprehensive load test, just install the BlazeMeter module on the Drupal 6 or 7 distribution, specify the load capacity and run - it’s that easy.
How to use the Drupal module
In Drupal, go to the BlazeMeter admin page. In the admin section you will find three sections:
1. Anonymous users
2. Authenticated users
Anonymous access section
Specify the maximum amount of concurrent anonymous users that will be simulated in the load test. You can further specify the list of pages, each anonymous user will access one after the other.
Authenticated users section
You can specify:
- The maximum amount of concurrent authenticated users that will be simulated in the load test; and the list of pages they will access.
- The number of unique authenticated users.
The configuration section includes several fields that will help build the test and get it ready to run.State the public domain name of your website. Please note that this doesn’t need to be a real domain. This is very important. It needs to be the domain name that your Drupal is expecting to see and is configured to use.>State the public IP of your website.Add the user key that identifies your account at BlazeMeter.

What to expect
Once you’ve run the test, a group of anonymous users will visit your website, going through the list of pages specified in the anonymous list of pages. In parallel, a group of authenticated users will be visiting your website going through the list of pages specified in the authenticated list of pages. These user credentials will become a part of the list of newly created authenticated users.
