BlazeMeter confirms that the best things in life are free, with launch of enhanced web analytics tool
Pioneering load testing technology company unveils free new plug-in for
the open source Apache JMeter™ project
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL – June 13, 2012 - BlazeMeter, provider of the JMeter based load testing cloud, today announced the release of its plug-in to the open-source Apache JMeter software. Now developers can reap the benefits of BlazeMeter’s commercial grade analytics tools as part of their JMeter desktop software with no extra cost.
For the first time ever, JMeter users will be able to compare reports, metrics and KPIs using an advanced analytics hosted in the cloud.
BlazeMeter’s new JMeter plug-in allows JMeter users to easily integrate BlazeMeter’s advanced cloud-based reporting and test management tools directly on their JMeter desktop software and view reports in a hosted cloud application provided by BlazeMeter.
“JMeter is an excellent tool; however its inherent reporting capabilities are somehow limited. BlazeMeter has boosted reporting versatility, which is great news for load and performance testers. Their new plug-in enables me to use JMeter locally, with a full range of comprehensive reporting capabilities completely separate from JMeter.” said Esa Vaarala of Prove Expertise Oy, a load and performance testing company based in Oulu, Finland.
“These powerful analytics tools help developers compare reports, metrics and KPIs, easily collaborate to fix bugs and quickly bring applications into production,” said Alon Girmonsky, Founder & CEO of BlazeMeter. “With the new plug-in, all test related data is automatically uploaded to a hosted cloud application. Developers can view and compare test results with previous test runs. They can share their reports with co-workers and save them for further analysis at a later time.”
BlazeMeter is extending its cloud-hosted test management solution for free to all JMeter users who download this plug-in.
Pricing and Availability
The new JMeter Plug-in is available for free on BlazeMeter’s Knowledge Base.
