Minor release which features a bunch of bug fixes.

  • now bombardier does not checks hostname plausibility when it shouldn't, thus allowing URLs like http://www-service/ (#39);
  • the correct way to set Host header with fasthttp have been pointed out by @nielsole (#41). This also fixes an old bug, previously deemed unresolvable (#17);
  • bug in fasthttp that haven't allowed some valid use cases has been fixed (see #38 for details).

New in v1.2

  • --print and --no-print flags were implemented (as per #25). Read more about usage in GoDoc. In short, you can now choose what to output (a combination of (intro, progress and results) or nothing at all);
  • user-defined output templates. Thorough documentation can be found here. There are also two builtin templates, that you can look at as an example;
  • 95-th percentile were added by @salmonz (per suggestion from #28).

Other things

  • A bug reported in #27 were fixed;
  • It turned out (thanks to #32) that Go's net/http used chunked transfer encoding when it wasn't supposed to. This is now fixed.

New in v1.1

  • Rate limiting:
    Now you can limit RPS by specifying desired upper limit. This is done via --rate (short: -r) flag.
  • Switchable client:
    You can choose between fasthttp's and Go's default HTTP client. Relevant flags are:
    --fasthttpfasthttp's implementation of HTTP client (default)
    --http1 — Go's HTTP client with HTTP/2.x disabled
    --http2 — Go's HTTP client that will use HTTP/2.x, whether it's possible
  • Body from file:
    In some (most? many?) cases it's super inconvenient to paste request's body into the console, so now you can use --body-file (short: -f) flag to read it from file or add --stream (short: -s) flag to stream it from file system.
  • Stats implementation has been reworked. This allows use of higher values for --timeout (previously only 10s — max). Also, you can check out new implementation's repo in case you need a goroutine-safe histogram. It's a bit rough, but usable.

Spread the word

If you like the tool I've built (with a little bit of help from @husobee) or this release in particular, feel free to share information about it (via reddit/Twitter/<other social media> post or in private conversation with a friend, anything will do really) or submit bug/feature request or a pull request. This will help me better understand how people use my tool, what issues they are encountering and how we could improve things.
