May 2021[Performance / Functional] Quick search for tests and reportsWe’ve added a new Search field to Performance and Functional tabs! Now you can quickly search within the tab for tests and reports by their name, without having to go through “Show All Tests” or “Show All Reports” side bars. The field will display top 5 recently updated tests, and top 5 recently executed reports that match your search. To see the full list of tests or reports, click on “Show All Results” which will open the full list in a sidebar.Looking for a more complex search, a way to find a test created by a specific user or during the last month? Stay tuned; We will add advanced search options to this field soon. [Taurus / Performance Testing] K6 and Vegeta executors addedTaurus has added new executors: K6 and Vegeta. Now you can run your K6 and Vegeta scripts in BlazeMeter. [Taurus / Performance Testing] MQTT protocol support addedTaurus has added support for the MQTT protocol. Now you can load test your IoT product with BlazeMeter. "Disk Out of Space" Alert for Private LocationsSoftware updates require free disk space to be installed, and now you can get an alert and take action before free disk space drops below a threshold of your choice. To create an Agent alert, go to the Alerts page in Workspace Settings menu, and create a new alert. Like Test alerts, the notification channels for Agent alerts are Email, Slack, or both. Once an Agent alert is defined, you will be notified in case any agent in any private location in your workspace goes below the threshold.For more details, see the documentation. [API Monitoring] Enhanced Authentication for Client Certificates in API Monitoring TestsWe have enhanced the PEM-encoded Client Certificates based authentication, for API Monitoring Tests, to also accept a key file or a passphrase. You can optionally set up the passphrase as a Secret at the team or bucket level using the Secrets Management feature. This ensures that the passphrase need not be shared with every member of the team and is also not visible in Tests. This ties together two powerful features within BlazeMeter API Monitoring, designed to monitor your secure APIs and keep your API Tests secure.Check out the docs to learn more. Requires a qualifying plan. Contact Sales to add Client Certificates support to your account. [Performance Testing] Comparing performance tests to a BaselineComparison capabilities in performance testing are now enhanced with the option to define a Baseline for a test. Defining a test run as a baseline helps testers make sure the application performance remains stable as code changes. A test run can be defined as a Baseline from the (redesigned) test history tab, or from the report itself:Once a baseline is defined, following test runs will be compared to the baseline, making it easier to identify degradations and bottlenecks, finding the related changes in code, and quickly taking actions to resolve them. You will find comparison data in the report Summary and in the Request Stats tab:The Compare Report page and the Trend Charts tab in the test will display a visual representation of the comparison to the baseline.BlazeMeter also helps you automate the decision making process, by allowing you to configure the failure criteria Threshold as a deviation from the baseline, so that test runs that significantly deviate from the baseline will automatically be marked as "Failed". To do that, check the “Use from Baseline” checkbox in the failure criteria section in the test, submit the deviation you are willing to accept, and the Threshold will automatically be calculated based on your selection. Watch a brief demo on the Baseline Comparison feature:For more information, see the documentation. [Mock Services] Inspection View for Transaction-Based Mock ServicesUnderstanding which requests and responses were handled by your Mock Services is critical in cases when there is a need to debug why certain requests were or were not returned by a Mock Service. BlazeMeter Mock Services now provide an "Inspection view" for transaction-based Mock Services, which displays details about recent traffic handled by a specific Mock Service.You can now quickly identify specific requests by full-text search and display corresponding response details. The Inspection view also includes responses served by real service in case of “redirect to live system” no match mode is selected. Such responses from live system can be saved as new transactions and pushed to the running Mock Service directly from the Inspection view screen.For more information, see the documentation. [Mock Services] Filter Mock Services by StatusMock Services view now provides a “Filter by Status” option which helps in cases where there are many Mock Services defined. By using this filter option, it is easy to display a subset of Mock Services based on a certain status. For example, you can display only Mock Services that are running or stopped. More details here from BlazeMeter Docs.[Mock Services] Display Historical Reports for BlazeMeter VSE Mock ServicesReporting for Mock Services running on BlazeMeter VSE now gives you the option to display reports for Mock Services that were previously running, but are now no longer available. This is useful if there is a need to display historical reports for Mock Services that were deleted. However, it is still important to understand how many transactions they handled or what were their hits per second characteristics.To use this functionality, simply open a new analytics tab, define the desired time period and select "Mock Service" from the list of available Mock Services that were running in that particular timeframe. More details here from BlazeMeter Docs.[Mock Services] Export Reports to PNG or PDF It is a very common need to share reports with others or store them for your own reference. Reports for Mock Services running on BlazeMeter VSE can be now exported and downloaded as PNG images or PDF documents. More details here from BlazeMeter Docs.[Mock Services] Download vse_matches Logs from BlazeMeter UIIt is possible to download vse_matches logs for a selected BlazeMeter VSE directly from the Environments screen. More details here from BlazeMeter Docs.[Mock Services] BlazeMeter VSE Support for IstioYou can now use Istio to help route Ingress traffic into the desired pod in containers and the cluster. More details here from BlazeMeter Docs.
