What's New for April 2020?

Mock Services: Bring your Own Certificate

 

We have expanded Mock Services HTTPs support.  In addition to using the SSL certificate that we provided, you can now configure your BlazeMeter agent or Kubernetes cluster to support a custom certificate for the Mock Service to use when communicating with whatever application is calling it.

 

Mock Services: Performance Scaling 


Mock Services can easily be configured to support horizontal scaling to meet your performance needs. Please check out our documentation on best practices on how to configure horizontal scaling and to find other recommendations about Mock Services horizontal and vertical scalability.
 

Moving our on-premise images from AWS S3 to Google Container Registry


Our latest version of BlazeMeter’s on-premise engine, requires access to the Google Container Registry and uses the following new addresses which should be whitelisted: 

  • Gcr.io - 
    • Test connectivity by executing:  curl -v https://gcr.io
    • Response: 302 / 200 HTTP code
  • Storage.blazemeter.com - 

 

Please update any special network configurations (e.g. Proxy, Environment variables, Firewall, etc.)

For any other assistance, contact BlazeMeter support and we will be happy to assist you with this update.

What's New for March 2020?

Comparison reports: new KPI for 90th percentile 

 

Now you can view the 90th percentile in your comparison report. This new KPI reduces the manual work of processing data from different reports. 

 

KPI 90th Percentile


Introducing a new “status” to pass/fail criteria


In a case where a report has no data to determine the pass/fail criteria (due to reporting error) it will be indicated as “No Data”. This allows you to have better visibility about test runs and their results.

 

Ability to apply filters to a downloaded CSV in Request Stats


Shift the filtering from excel to BlazeMeter!  Now, when you filter within the request stats table, the results will be shown in the downloaded CSV content.

 

Detailed test times on dashboard On the main dashboard 


You can now hover over the executed time, to see more specific time details of when a test was executed.

Enhanced data for your performance testing reports is here! 


Over the past few months, we’ve been constantly improving the accuracy for your data calculations in reports using our new processing mechanism. You now have access to even faster and more accurate calculations for all your reports with a one-second resolution level that gives you better data granularity. Examples of metrics enhanced include the following:

 

  • Max virtual users calculation
  • Bandwidth calculation
  • Time picker resolution granularity

 

You will be able to see these updated in your new performance testing reports, and we will continue to work on enhancing your data and reporting experience 


Unselect all labels in requests stats tab


We added the ability to unselect all labels in the labels filtering dropdown

Export Comparison Reports to CSV Files

 

When comparing reports, instead of just analyzing graphs, now you can also download a CSV representing that data in the compared graphs.

Mock Services: Expand the MAR Asset Catalog by importing Mar assets from Enterprise Service Virtualization VSEs


BlazeMeter Mock Services integrates directly with your enterprise Service Virtualization product.  The Asset Catalog allows you to store all your Virtual Service/MAR assets from a single location and to deploy them directly to your Service Virtualization product.  To enable a quick way to add MAR assets to the catalog, you can directly sync whatever is available on your running VSEs  to the catalog.

What's New for February 2020?

We enhanced the Requests Stats Tab just for you!

Account disabled notification screen


Sometimes, due to security or financial reasons, accounts can get disabled. In order to notify you, we created a new page that will show once an account you are part of is disabled. If this happens, please follow the instructions on the page to enable your account.

 

Account Disabled Notification Screen

New booting screen improvements


We fixed bugs and improved flows based on your feedback including adding a scenario filter, naming EUX sessions, and more!

 

Infrastructure upgrade


We have successfully finished upgrading our database infrastructure to further enhance  performance and data security.

 

Mock Services: Support for Dynamic Responses


Mock Services already are a powerful tool to eliminate testing constraints such as unavailable  services or third party systems.  With the introduction of Dynamic Responses, we  have made Mock Services more robust and easier to use.  Now you can configure your transactions to respond based on the information that was shared in the request.  For example, if you were looking up an account based on a user ID, you do not need to create transactions for different IDs but can pass the ID from the request and ensure the response will include whatever ID was provided. Click here for more information on how to utilize this feature.

 

Mock Services: Limit Port Ranges Supported


We recently introduced the capability to limit the port range that is allowed when spinning up a Mock Service.  Please make sure the range is wide enough to accommodate all the Mock Services you would like to run. Click here to learn more.

What's New for January 2020?

We got a new booting screen!
 

Waiting for your tests to be ready? We’ve upgraded the UX in our booting screen to make it easier to customize with the information you need. 

 

Besides the new look & feel, we’ve split the screen into two parts, advanced and basic, with added functionalities. For example, you can see logs for specific sessions, filter information, see only added sessions to a current test that is running, and more!
