Release: LoadGen 2022-Q4 -

Release date

December 28, 2022

Citrix Workspace App 2208-2211

LoadGen will not work when Citrix Workspace App 2208-2211 is installed, either downgrade to 2207 or lower or 2212 or higher.

With our Q4 release, we released our new control validation options in LoadGen, which are an absolute game-changer for load-testing Windows applications and websites.
We also further improved our new recording wizard for Citrix, Microsoft RDS, FAT Client, Azure Virtual Desktop, and VMWare! Read more about this new functionality in this article.
We smashed a lot of bugs, and bring a lot of improvements.


New Features

  • The ability to validate all controls within the visual tree, a specific subtree, or a specific control based on its name and type allows for a much more comprehensive and targeted testing approach. Additionally, the option to specify the Nth control found with a given name gives users the ability to fine-tune their testing and focus on specific controls that may be experiencing issues under load. Overall, these new control validation options are a major asset to our tool and are sure to be a hit with our users. Read more about this feature in this article.
  • The new LoadGen Recorder Wizard for FAT Client, Azure Virtual Desktop, and VMWare is here! The LoadGen Recorder Wizard will let you create workloads much faster than you already can, with no code to write whatsoever!
