Durham, NC (PRWEB) March 8, 2007
A new version of the Web Performance Load Tester has just been released, making it possible to load test the most complicated websites, including AJAX-based architectures, without using a programming language.
The goal of the Web Performance Load Tester is to perform website load testing as quickly and easily as possible, and this latest release builds upon that goal, adding support for the most complicated websites, especially AJAX-based architectures.
Test cases are written by simply browsing a website, and the Web Performance Suite's Application State Management feature kicks into automatically to figure out what changes dynamically, like .NET's VIEWSTATE or field names that encode product ids, or any of the million different clever ways to code a website, and gets the test case ready to simulate large numbers of users. This approach helps most customers shave 80% off the time that used to be spent doing repetitive and boring test script configuration.
Advanced Configuration Wizards
Most of the time Application State Management works right out of the box, but with AJAX, for example, some additional configuration can be required. The 3.3 release has the ability to specify site-wide rules for a particular web architecture, and from then on the test cases are configured automatically. By using the built-in support feature users can submit everything required so that Web Performance engineers can create a site-wide config file easily and quickly.
While some customers want everything to happen automatically, others want to control everything themselves. With release of Web Performance Suite 3.3 all of the configuration options available to our engineers are now available to the user, along with a tutorial to show how to use everything.
Streaming Media Support
With the increasing popularity of streaming media across the web, the demands for testing streaming media servers have increased as well. The only problem is in the past testing streaming media servers required complicated and expensive software. To meet this demand the 3.3 release adds support for putting a realistic load on a wide variety of situations where a single HTTP connection remains open streaming binary data.
Dozens of New Features
The 3.3 release also adds dozens more improvements across the board, including site-wide validation rules, domain and URL blocking, easy IP aliasing, syntax highlighting, fixed-repeat playback and many more.
