During the process of performance testing we need to collect and analyze results. From time to time it becomes imperative that we compare new results with old ones.
BlazeMeter to save the day...or old data. So without further ado, how to use the compare results feature! (applause, applause)
Curtain goes up and....spotlight!
COMPARE RESULTS enters, stage left.
Say, for example, that several months ago, you ran a load test. You would simply go to the “Tests&Reports” tab via the top toolbar on site.
Select the same test and start it. It will take a few moments to launch the servers.
NOTE- 2 two new tabs, “MONITORING” and “NEW LOAD RESULTS(BETA)”.
So, let’s deal with “MONITORING”.
Here you can see all system monitoring information: CPU Load, Network Throughput, amount of Memory that is used by the server, the number of console connections, etc.
But, take heed at the very interesting dropdown list, which was not present before.
This is the list of previous executions of the same test. You can switch between different records to compare results with previous ones.
Let’s go to “NEW LOAD RESULTS (BETA)”.
New results displaying functionality allows to compare current results with old ones. Old results can be switched from one to another.
Another feature is related to downloading results. In prior verions, rthere was a designated button for downloading results.
Now you can get results in two different text formats, JTL and JSON by using separate buttons for each variant.
Users can use the new 'compare results' feature from different test executions using Blazemeter's Listener. That means you can analyze test results from your own environment! Learn how to user the new Blazemeter Listener.
And now, for the movie.
