    Get monkeys do do it for you πŸ˜› They allow you to do a free test or you can pay to have more monkeys testing your website at once (but at the moment everything's free)!

    Not exactly load testing per-se, but still an interesting solution for API testing!

    This is #1 in my opinion. You can record real user scenarios, then run them as percentages of your load test. Example - if you have an ecommerce site, you could simulate 5% of traffic checking out and 95% of traffic viewing product pages. It gets pricy though, so this is best option if you have some budget to spend on testing.

    This is my 2nd favorite load testing tool. A bit more basic than Load Impact. But super easy to use and very cost effective. You can customize the types of requests it makes / store reports / rerun old tests. If you're just getting started with load testing, I usually recommend Blitz first.
