Uniquely Smart: CA APM integration auto-selects impacted metrics each time your test runs

 

The APM integration for CA APM is now bi-directional and uniquely smart. It's our first integration to import APM metrics without requiring you to specify the metrics ahead of time. CA APM identifies the systems impacted as your test runs and automatically imports the relevant metrics for you. There's no better way to keep up with an always changing environment. Just point to your CA APM instance, launch your test and we’ll take care of the rest.

 

Uniquely Smart: CA APM Integration Auto-Selects Impacted Metrics Each Time Your Test Runs

 

Behind the scenes, BlazeMeter injects headers to your test traffic and CA APM determines which systems are impacted. CA APM then sends back the relevant metrics, which we make available in the Timeline Report.  This new feature is layered on top of the existing outbound integration mode, where BlazeMeter test labels show up as Business Transactions in CA APM.

 

Throughput RC renamed to “Change RPS”

 

We have renamed the “Throughput RC” button to “Change RPS” to make it easier to find.

Throughput RC renamed to “Change RPS”

 

Now:

 

 

This button appears in tests where you have checked “Limit RPS” in the test configuration. It allows you to make mid-test changes to the RPS goal.  See Limit RPS in the knowledge base for more detail. 

 

Stop Test Dialog redesigned To reduce data loss

 

We have re-designed the Stop Test dialog to make it more likely you will choose the “Graceful shutdown” option over the more destructive option, “Terminate servers”.

 

 

Workspace Alerts for all test activity

 

Workspace Alerts send alerts by email or Slack when test actions are taken and are triggered by size or duration thresholds. Now you can be notified of all test activity regardless of size or duration, by creating a Workspace Alert with duration set to "0" and concurrency set to "0".

 

To get alerts like this:

 

 

Create an alert (Settings > Workspace > Alerts) like this:

 

 

Tip: More detail on creating Slack Webhooks URLs for alerts has been added to our knowledge base.

 

Multi Location renamed to "Create CDN Test”

 

We have renamed the “Multi Location” button to “Create CDN Test”:

 

Was:

 

 

Now:

 

 

This button appears in Test Configuration screens if your account plan includes this feature. Clicking it creates a 9-location multi-test designed to meet Content Delivery Network provider recommendations for an accurate test. Contact support@blazemeter.com if you have questions about this feature.
