What’s New for March 2019?

Control the size of your engine


Need different engine sizes for different testing purposes? No problem! Account admins can now control the Engine size (CPU & RAM) and have different engine “types” from various locations. We will soon be adding the option so users with “tester” permission/role will not be able to access the Private Locations configuration.

 

New Design and architecture for RPS & remote control


New design and architecture for Remote Control update during test run allows you to update JMeter parameters for every scenario and location simultaneously. Furthermore, if a test has multiple scripts and locations, we will divide the RPS relatively between the scenarios and locations, according to the VUHs configured per location \ scenario

What’s New for February 2019?

JMeter 5.1 now supported


We’ve upgraded our engine images to support JMeter 5.1

 

Centralized scheduling management


Users now have full visibility & management on scheduled tests across each workspace they are part of.
 

What’s New in January 2019?

JMeter logs uploaded throughout test run 


For easier debugging and faster understanding of the issues in the test, we now upload JMeter log files periodically during the test


Compare report now supports two resolutions


You’ve asked for it, and we’ve added support for both 1 sec and 1 min resolutions on the compare report.


Schedule tests directly from the UI


We have now brought the scheduling capability to UI, allowing users to schedule their tests directly & simply from UI. If you need advanced configuration, you can set a cron syntax in under the advanced section.

 


 

What’s New for December 2018?

Control your proxy authentication configuration


The BlazeMeter Proxy Recorder now supports port 80 as well as random ports. iOS users can now use the Proxy Recorder for recordings by choosing the random port option.

 


Debug mode UI upgraded


Now, users will see a blue “Debug Run” stripe in the Original Test Configuration tab.

 


Workspace search UI improved


Now, the workspaces navigation dropdown supports inline search for workspaces. Instead of very long scrolling, users can now search to speed/simplify the effort.

 

Smart Java version selector


The JMeter Properties section in the New Test Create will show users only the java versions that are relevant to their selected JMeter version.


New “Environment” page


The new environment page can be found in the account’s settings section, enabling users to configure a local plugins repository. At the moment, this page will be shown only for accounts with Private Locations and it includes the local JMeter repository configuration.

 

 

Navigate to the executive report directly from results email

 

We’ve added the option to view your executive summary report directly from your report notification email. 

 

Release Date: November 18, 2018

Here is what’s new with the November 18th release:

  • Add a test to a Multi-Test (NTC) that’s already running
  • Improved JMX Converter at converter.blazemeter.com
  • Enhanced TeamCity plugin (version 2.3)

 

Add a test to a Multi-Test (NTC) that’s already running


One of the features long-time BlazeMeter power users love is the ability to add additional load or entirely new test logic to a large test that’s already running. No need to stop, reconfigure and re-launch: Just launch an additional test and join it to the Multi-Test in progress.  This feature is now live in New Test Create (NTC), also known as BlazeMeter “V4”.

 

Read Add Load/Logic Mid-Test in the Knowledge Base article for Multi-Test (NTC) to learn more.
