Is there a way to do load testing of bitbucket server? I want to ensure we don't face performance degradation.

I would like to know if there are any benchmarking scripts or way to load test a Bitbucket server. This is to ensure the infrastructure is sufficient and doesn't cause choking of Bitbucket server when the load increases.

Any advice is much appreciated.

Load testing probably isn't what you want since that will you driving extra load onto the production server. What you'll want to do is measure the performance metrics over time. See for more details.

If you're interested in load testing a test instance of Bitbucket Server, please take a look at our Elastic Experiment Executor (E3) at You can use the E3 framework to conduct tests on your test instance and gather data about application performance on your infrastructure. More information about how to use E3 can be found in the repository's readme, or in our developer blog about scaling Bitbucket:
