StormRunnerLoad version 37 performance testing.pngThe Micro Focus Performance testing team is pleased to introduce the newest version of our cloud-based performance testing solution - StormRunner Load version 3.7. In this release we have included several new features to enhance performance testing methodologies, new public API operations, new analysis capabilities and enhanced Git integration. 

  • Goal oriented run mode for load tests - configure a goal for a load test, so that the load test runs until a configured threshold (hits per second or transactions per second) is reached
  • Enhanced support for advanced scheduling
    • Copy advanced scheduling between scripts
    • Configure advanced scheduling for scripts that run on on-premises load generators
  • Simply OPLG deployment – whitelist SRL sub-domain address dedicated to your tenant to allow outbound connectivity from OPLGs to SRL control component, eliminating the need to configure and maintain specific IP addresses
  • New public API operations – operations have been added that enable you to
    • Get a list of active runs
    • Get an HTTP Responses summary for a given test run
    • Get the enabled schedules for a specific load test
    • Schedule a test run at a given time
    • Delete a schedule of a specific load test
    • Delete an on-premises load generator
  • Additional runtime settings - runtime settings have been added that enable you to download filters and step download timeout
  • Display GIT repository information for scripts - when viewing a script uploaded from a Git repository in Assets, additional information about the relevant repository and branch is now displayed. You can also view details of the commit history.
  • New analysis module enhancements:
    • Metrics for individual error and HTTP codes are now included in the metrics tree of the new dashboard
    • Load generator alerts are now included in the notifications area of the new dashboard and can be added to the dashboard as a table
    • The number of script errors encountered during a load test that could not be sent to Splunk is now included in the notifications area of the new dashboard
    • An option has been added to the new dashboard that enables you to dynamically increase or decrease the number of running Vusers while a test is running
