Find a particular location faster, or filter the list to find locations with something in common by typing in the drop-down bar. Here we typed “lon” to quickly see which providers are supported in London:
We cleaned up the menu at top right of each report where you previously saw these six buttons:
The “Compare” and “Summary” buttons are still there, but we have converted “Accessibility,” “Share,” “Refresh” and “Delete” to icons:
Do you have many Workspaces? We’ve eliminated the need to download separate reports from each Workspace to track usage at the Workspace level. Look for the new “Workspace ID” column in the Account level Usage Report CSV. If you are have Owner, Admin or Billing role for your account, navigate to Settings > Account > Usage Report and click the Download CSV button:
Now you can view context-sensitive help, search our knowledge-base and more without ever leaving the app. Just click the green HELP CENTER tab on the right to get started:

Everyone can submit ideas. Paid customers can also search, vote-up and subscribe to be notified of comments and status changes from within our new ideas portal. Learn more about the Ideas portal and your opportunity to impact our roadmap here.
Failure Criteria filtering is now available on both the Dashboard and individual Test History pages. The default view shows “All” and you can filter by “Passed”, “Failed” or “Not Set”:
We continue to expand our geographic diversity. Recently we doubled our Azure locations and this week we are adding Google’s Sao Paulo, Brazil location. You can always see the full list by viewing the locations drop-down in an test create/edit screen.
The Jenkins plugin for BlazeMeter is now workspace aware: select a workspace during job configuration to fetch tests specific to that workspace. We’ve also added average throughput and 90% response time to the metrics in the aggregate report.
Details and previous updates in the plugin changelog on github.
Now when you display the “Show all tests” or “Show all reports” lists, you can resize them to display long names without truncation. Just drag the border on the right:
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.
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.
We have renamed the “Throughput RC” button to “Change RPS” to make it easier to find.
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.
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 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.
We have renamed the “Multi Location” button to “Create CDN Test”:
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 email@example.com if you have questions about this feature.
When viewing the test report, you can now easily filter the labels in the requests stats tab. Select the ‘settings’ icon found in the top right corner. In the pop up, under the select labels tab, select the desired labels you wish to see. Here’s a 25-second demo:
We have doubled the number of Azure locations, adding new locations in Korea, India, Australia, Canada, US and UK. Have a look at the locations drop-down to see them all.
