Collaborative JMeter Testing

Innovation Apr 21, 2017

OctoPerf Workspaces for QA Teams enables collaborative JMeter testing.


Performance Tester Teams struggle to share their work when using JMeter. Sharing JMeter projects can be a tedious task. OctoPerf solves this issue by allowing Teams to share their load tests. Workspaces allow teams to share JMeter projects (Virtual Users, Scenarios and test reports). A Workspace is a collection of projects accessible by one or more people with different rights. Workspace members have different rights depending on their role:

OctoPerf now fully supports all JMeter features including open-source and custom JMeter plugins.


We have made a major step toward full JMeter support. Until now, OctoPerf supported only a limited subset of JMeter features. Many customers were asking to extend the JMeter support to fit their own needs. We had to find an elegant solution to fit all needs without compromising simplicity of use. JMeter can be easily extended by creating your own plugins. There are numerous open-source JMeter plugins which greatly increase JMeter capabilities.

Do You Have What it Takes to be a Work from Home Tester?


Many of us have dreamed of working from home, but until the invention of the Internet it was quite impossible for most of us. Over the last decade, the odd work from home day has transformed into full-time remote working positions whereby someone works for a company, but does so from home. Furthermore, the development of cloud technology, a proliferation of online work-based platforms, and freelance gig sites for most company functions, has led to companies being able to outsource their work to an army of work from home freelancers.

Hiring the right software developer is hard.


There are so many articles about the skills a software engineer should have, but almost none about which skills should alert you about how bad he is. I’ve met many software developers the last ten years and I would like to share my thoughts about the kind of people I think are not bringing anything to make a company more forward. The content of this article is subject to debate: hiring someone is a highly subjective matter.

Collect and analyze end-user experience metrics with browser-based load testing.


We are proud to announce that we now support running real browser load testing alongside with regular HTTP load testing. We have integrated the JMeter Selenium WebDriver to our platform. It’s now possible to run JMeter load tests as well as Selenium webdriver tests simultaneously. Collect both network metrics like response time and end-use experience metrics like browser load time. Octoperf removes the pain of load testing your app with Selenium with our Saas integration.
