What is Gatling?

Gatling is a highly capable load testing tool. It is designed for ease of use, maintainability and high performance. Out of the box, Gatling comes with excellent support of the HTTP protocol that makes it a tool of choice for load testing any HTTP server. As the core engine is actually protocol agnostic, it is perfectly possible to implement support for other protocols. For example, Gatling currently also ships JMS support.
Gatling is a tool in the Load and Performance Testing category of a tech stack.

Needs advice

I am looking for a performance testing tool that I can use for testing the documents accessed by many users simultaneously. I also want to integrate Jenkins with the performance automation tool. I am not able to decide which shall I choose Gatling or Locust. But for me, Jenkins integration is important. I am looking for suggestions for this scenario.

I have to run a multi-user load test and have test scripts developed in Gatling and Locust.

I am planning to run the tests with Flood IO, as it allows us to create a custom grid. They support Gatling. Did anyone try Locust tests? I would prefer not to use multiple infra providers for running these tests!
