We are proud to announce the release of the server monitoring in OctoPerf.
Sometimes a feature changes everything.
Over the past year, you have been numerous to try OctoPerf, to use it for your testing projects and to share about it. We want to thank you for your amazing support! Your confidence has given us the energy to grow and to develop new features.
Today, we are proud to announce you we released a major functionality for your tests: The server monitoring.
From now on, you can monitor your servers and retrieve dozen of metrics you can cross in OctoPerf with performance metrics while a test is running.
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.
Welcome to load generator monitoring including cpu, memory usage and more.
We’re proud to introduce brand new analysis metrics. Load generators monitoring has been asked frequently and we felt like it was something crucial missing in load testing reports. By providing monitoring metrics for every load generator during the load test, you can quickly get an overview of all load generators health.
Although we take care of the infrastructure, these information are important to the performance tester: he can quickly pinpoint if a slow down is due to its infrastructure or due to a load generator being overhelmed.
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.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks but we keep doing our best to get new features in OctoPerf.
We have worked on two topics:
Ease of use Implementing feedbacks User experience Some of you probably noticed but we are working to improve the first experience with OctoPerf. At first with video tutorials which show all the features: But also through a brand new guided tour:
Our goal has always been to make load testing as simple as possible, so we hope these will make OctoPerf even easier to handle:
Get an insight about the features introduced since January 2016.
This blog post aims to resume all the cool new features and improvements we’ve made to OctoPerf since the beginning of the year.
Design Improvements and features in this section are related to the online virtual user design exclusive to OctoPerf.
Enable / Disable actions This is a must have to quickly rework any existing virtual user. Any action can now be disabled to prevent it from being executed when running the virtual user.
We’ve just opened a new load testing region, Seoul (South Korea).
We’re pleased to announce today the launch of the Asia Pacific (Seoul, South Korea) region. Companies with infrastructures based in Korea can now leverage our Korean load generators to measure the performance of their applications.
Load tests can now be run smoothly from South Korea using Amazon Web Services. Seoul is well-known to be digital nomads friendly.
Future expansion Amazon is currently extending their datacenters to the following new locations:
OctoPerf last update lets you add an on-premise provider easily, so you can do load tests behind the firewall.
We are proud to announce that we support On-Premise load testing! What is On-premise load testing? Sometimes, web applications to test are behind firewalls. It may also happen that the application should not be available publicly until in production. Our on-premise feature allows you to test those applications without opening any firewall port.
You can now setup a machine to act as a load-generator on your private network. This post explains how to setup an on-premise load-generator within minutes.
OctoPerf last update improves the overall reporting: percentiles are displayed in the result table.
OctoPerf last update focused on improving the overall reporting with, for example, the possibility to insert page breaks in the generated PDF report.
The result table We worked hard on the result table: from the way the metrics are displayed and sorted to the CSV export, we reviewed this report item so you can get the most revealing information from it.
The percentile metric Until now OctoPerf analysis section only came with a specific report item dedicated to percentiles.
OctoPerf last update aims to automate the subscription process. You can now buy, renew and cancel plans on your own.
This short post describes the modifications made to OctoPerf for its last update, and how they can let you save time while preparing your load tests.
You may need to have a large performance test done for yesterday. In such case the process to get a license with the appropriate number of virtual users must be as straightforward as possible.
Subscribing to a plan In OctoPerf, it’s a matter of minutes:
