BlazeMeter Extends Capabilities in Open Source Performance Testing
March 29, 2016

BlazeMeter announced new functionality giving developers freedom to run any combination of Gatling, The Grinder, Locust, Selenium and JMeter tests in parallel through a single unified control language, both locally and in the cloud.

“Developers that want to excel in the era of continuous delivery need tools that give them the most speed and flexibility possible,” said Andrey Pokhilko, Chief Scientist at BlazeMeter. “We’ve been working with the open source community to develop ideal performance testing tools for any scenario. The new functionality combines the best of our community work with the infrastructure we’ve built up at BlazeMeter, marking a new set of capabilities to bring performance testing to new heights.”

BlazeMeter’s new technology allows teams to create load and performance tests as brief fragments of code in any text editor, removing many of the barriers presented by legacy tools. BlazeMeter tests can be defined using familiar YAML or JSON file formats and then easily managed in version control alongside the applications they test.

Parallel test runs shorten build/test cycles and make them more predictable. Adding more tests doesn't make the testing cycle take longer - test suites run only as long as the longest single test among them. Parallel runs, even with widely different open source tools, allow speed and quality to co-exist.

BlazeMeter’s “performance tests as code” format is a simple domain-specific language that controls test logic and performance thresholds for many popular open source tools without the need for expertise in the tools themselves, giving developers and testers greater reach with the tools they already know. Individual small-scoped tests can be run in a targeted fashion or composed along with other tests into sophisticated real-world scenarios at run-time. With a single command line interface (CLI) for local and cloud test orchestration, this approach is seamlessly integrated into any Continuous Integration environment. These new capabilities finally bring performance testing into modern DevOps workflows as a first-class citizen.
