LoadGen 2021-Q3 -

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 Q3 release, we bring you a new way to collect Performance Counters from Systems Under Test (machines that will be used to collect Performance Counters during a test), and we have introduced the ability to use variables in Control Validations. 
We smashed a lot of bugs, and bring a lot of improvements.


New Features

  • Systems Under Test functionality is totally renewed, you can now use LoadGen Agents to retrieve Systems Under Tests from machines in the proximity of the LoadGen Agent physical location. As an example: you have multiple data centers in different locations. Just add a LoadGen Agent in each data center and collect the Performance Counters of each machine you want to collect the Performance Counters. Read more about this feature in this article.
  • From this release, it is possible to create Control variables, which you can use in the Control Validations. This is super easy when working in multilingual environments or just to speed up building your Workload.
