REST service load testing with Python 3 asyncio
a talk by Brad Howes

For a REST service we are deploying for a customer, we wished to know how well it would perform under various load scenarios. Since we already had a Python driver that understood the REST service, it was only natural to attempt the load testing in Python as well. I will discuss the harness we used to generate load, and how and why we modeled load as a Poisson process.
