CLIF is a multi-protocols, extendible load testing platform, including monitoring facilities, with optional integration to Eclipse IDE and Jenkins CI server.

CLIF is an open load testing platform, including load injectors, for generating traffic (a variety of protocols are supported such as HTTP, FTP, SIP...), and probes, for measuring resource usage (processor, memory, network...). Both command-line and graphical user interfaces are provided, including Eclipse plug-ins. It is extensible through Java programming (new injectors, new probes...).

Ask any software services company or any freelance developer interested in open source, be it to extend CLIF and/or to use CLIF for any performance concern: benchmarking/load testing, integration/functional tests, active live performance monitoring...

Market Readiness Synthesis

CLIF is a very stable software test performance platform. Its development was launched 18 years ago. It is now a modular platform evolving by plug-ins. The software is maintained by a small team at Orange which is also the principal user and the unique financial sponsor of the project. An alternative to Apache Jmeter, CLIF is unique by the amplitude of its load testing capacity from the desktop to the datacenter. CLIF offers four users interfaces including the de facto standard Eclipse IDE for the definition of testing scenarios.
