Previously Loadero had the same amount of compute power assigned to each participant in every test, but applications that our customers test are different and have different demands for end user machine resources. That is why we added compute units to give our customers better flexibility in test creation. This also allows to run much larger load tests as well as optimize cost of running the tests for the applications that don’t use much compute…

Not always writing test scripts goes as smoothly as planned. Sometimes even seemingly easy tests take way too long to make them right. Especially when just starting to write tests there are a ton of potential issues that can pop up. These issues can be in the website itself and also in the written test script. Debugging is one of the most important skills any automation tester should learn. There are many ways of test script…

There are cases in performance and load tests, when during test execution it’s required to upload a file. If your website allows users to upload files, for example account avatar or any other type, file upload testing is absolutely necessary to test the bounds of this functionality. This testing task may be tricky, as file upload utilizes the native file system prompt to select the desired file with which automated testing frameworks can’t interact. Today…

If you are the only person in Loadero project, sure you have all the permissions possible for this project, but Loadero is used by various sized teams. For a small QA team or large scale enterprise, that utilizes Loadero for filling testing needs, setting member permissions can be very important. There might be a time when a new team member has arrived and should be invited to the Loadero project. Possibly this member should have…

Post-run assertions give a great opportunity to quickly determine if test run results are within the preset limits. If you need to analyze web app performance metrics that can be set as asserts for a finished test run, it is done very quickly in Loadero. For example, it’s quick and easy to assert machine CPU and memory usage to not exceed 60 percent during the test run. Or you can use asserts to focus on…
