Highlights

New Feature

Starting with XLT 8.3.0, load and performance test reports are optionally enriched with a new section named “Scorecard” created by the scorecard feature - a rule-based approach to evaluate a load test report and rate it automatically.

It works by applying XPath expressions on the load test report’s XML document and testing their value for some given condition. Furthermore, it allows you to weight certain aspects of your checks by assigning points to them that are summed up to a final score later on. Finally, you may assign a rating for the load test depending on the final score.

All of this enables you to test for certain performance or even functional criteria in an automated fashion to get a first insight into the load test’s outcome and thus save valuable time.

See #493 for more. An extensive documentation will follow.

Highlights

  • Feature: When testing with the Chromium browser, XLT now tracks Web Vitals metrics and displays the resulting score for each Web Vital and action in the test report.
  • Improvement: The comparison report now shows the Pxx percentile data in general and adds a table with bandwidth values for requests.

AWS AMI Retirement Notice

As part of our regular clean-up process, we will retire AWS AMIs older than XLT version 6.2.x on September 1st, 2023. If you need an older version, please build your own AMI (see here for more details) or copy the respective AMI to your own AMI registry in time.

As a note for the future: Xceptance will not guarantee that provided AMIs (and, in the future, images for other cloud providers) are available forever. We strongly encourage you to migrate frequently to the most recent version. If you need a particular setup maintained for a longer period of time, please talk to Xceptance and consider a support contract.
