LoadGen 2021-Q4 -

LoadGen Flows are not backward compatible

LoadGen You need to manually open the Flows you want to use in the test and Save them before running a test.
With our Q4 release, we bring you our new benchmarking user actions, and we have introduced the ability to send data source information to a variable.
We smashed a lot of bugs, and bring a lot of improvements.


New Features

  • We are proud to release our new benchmarking user actions (read more about this feature in this article):
    • Measure CPU Performance: Calculate x times the th power of n. This action will benchmark your CPU performance of a Virtual Machine, VDI, or hosted desktop.
    • Measure IO Performance: This function will create files based on a size, then you can either read these files or remove them. This action will benchmark your IO performance of a Virtual Machine, VDI, or hosted desktop.
    • Gather System Information: This action will send your Virtual Machine, VDI, or hosted desktop system information to the database.
  • From this release, it is possible to set a variable based on a filter in a data source. So if you have a sheet with multiple columns you create a filter, return an item of a particular column and store this in a variable. You can reuse the variable to retrieve the information of a specific column of the selected - filtered - row based on the variable content. Read more about this feature in this article.
  • You can now add command-line options/parameters to the Start Process user action.
  • We added the following folder and file user actions:
    • Copy a folder or file.
    • Create a folder or file.
    • Delete a folder or file.
    • Check if a folder or a file exists.
    • Move a folder or file.
