The simplest way to run Gatling is to use our all in one bundle.
- install Java JRE 8+
- unzip the bundle to e.g.
If you already have Gatling installed, you only need to add the Flood Gatling Plugin jars to start testing with Flood.
Note that flood-gatling minimally modifies your Gatling installation. You may wish to take a copy of
$GATLING_HOMEbefore adding flood-gatling
- unzip & move the jars into
writers = [file, flood] # add flood to the list of writers
The next step is to configure your
config.yamlfile to tell the Flood Agent to use this Gatling installation specifically.
The minimal configuration used for this is:
For Gatling (and all supported tools) - there is the option to use our actual Flood Docker image if you do not wish to setup a local native tool binary install. Simply use the following properties in your
config.yamlto let Flood know that you wish to use Flood's docker container for the respective load test tool instead of your own.
