We want to make load testing as straightforward as possible. We’ve therefore been making some big improvements to our self-service load testing solution.
As part of this process, we’ve upgraded the Scenario Wizard – the online tool that helps you build your load test quickly and painlessly.
Imagine you’re looking for detailed insight into how your website performs over a short period of time. Perhaps you’re making some changes to content or structure. Or perhaps you’d like to see how the user experience varies over the course of a promotion – or during a load test in advance of a promotion.
Synthetic monitoring gives you alerting and a reliable overview of how performance changes over time. Real user monitoring tells you about performance as it’s experienced by actual visitors.
But what if you’re looking for accurate, real-browser tests, complete with filmstrips, heatmaps and videos? Something to help you understand the experience your site delivers and pinpoint any performance bottlenecks?
This is what the latest update to Performance Analyser allows you to do, thanks to more granular scheduling.
The Interactive Dashboard is our way of giving you an at-a-glance, real-time guide to how your monitors are performing.
It means you can instantly see any changes in performance and whether more than one web page, journey or other online service is affected.
As such, it’s perfect for big screens in ops centres, and we know a number of our customers use it in just that way.
However, some of those customers told us they wanted more.
