Another post about the little things we keep adding to OctoPerf like correlation rules frameworks and APM integrations.
We recently released a new minor version of OctoPerf. It includes many improvements in terms of usability and also support for a new monitoring technology. Let’s have a look at these.
Usage logs One of the main feedback from our large customers was about how difficult it can be to follow the activity on a workspace. We decided to implement a new section in the subscription page that will log every test done on the current workspace: This way you can quickly assess if you need to upgrade or downgrade your subscription.
Monitoring the Apache Httpd of a WordPress installed via Docker.
This blog post is a step by step guide for monitoring Apache Httpd using OctoPerf. We use WordPress as a sample application.
Prerequisites Before monitoring an infrastructure we need:
to install WordPress using Docker, to configure an on-premise Host, and to create a virtual user that browse the different pages. You can skip to the monitoring chapter if you are familiar with these steps or directly to the analysis to get the results.
At the root of the OctoPerf project is the will to provide realistic load testing. We continue to take steps to improve the JMeter experience and make it accessible. But there’s a limit to what pure performance testing can achieve.
To push this limit it is vital to assess what happens on the hardware during the tests.
More realism Of course, a realistic test must reproduce the users expected behavior, but that’s not all.
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.
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.
