Understanding your load testing results can be a challenge. Automated results analysis can really cut down on the time you spend poring over your test data to figure out where the bottlenecks are. In our user survey, we found that automated results analysis is the second most wanted capability for a load testing solution.
Tl;dr — We’re hosting a webinar at 1 p.m. EST May 4: “How to Create Realistic Load Tests with Advanced Mode.”
- This webinar will help you run more realistic tests, which will give you more actionable performance data in your results, which helps you better optimize your website, app and/or APIs
- This webinar will last between 30-45 minutes — we’re succinct, but thorough
Tl;dr — Our users asked for a webhook that could notify them when tests start and finish. Because we’re really good listeners, we built it.
- If you want to get a simple notification when that big, important test is done, you can get it sent to wherever you like — email, Slack, HipChat, carrier pigeon (not really because the pigeon won’t understand the HTTP request)
- This is the first iteration of these notifications, so we plan on improving them soon
This is the third of a series of posts describing the different types of web performance testing. In the first post, we gave an overview of what load testing is about and the different types of load tests available. Our second post gave an introduction to load testing in general, and described what a basic ramp-up schedule would look like.
