Some exciting new things in SmartMeter.io. Not only have we released version 1.3.0, there’s also an updated pricing and distribution of features across all SmartMeter.io versions.
To sum up what happened with the pricing:
You can now access all SmartMeter.io features in the free Light version (yes, even distributed load testing!)
If you decide to upgrade to higher version to access more virtual users, load test time, acceptance criteria and so on, you can do so by only updating the license file
We have discontinued the Developer version
What’s new in the 1.3.0 release
There are some brand new improvements in this latest release.
1) Acceptance criteria
Define acceptance criteria such as failed requests, response times, number of hits or system resource utilization and let SmartMeter.io to auto evaluate test results for you.
It is a must have for running performance tests as part of Continuos Integration.
2) Easy system resource utilization monitoring
Monitoring system resource utilization is an integral part of performance testing. SmartMeter.io bundles PerfMon Server Agent and automaticaly inserts the measured values as graphs to test report.
3) Sharing global configuration
Global configuration enables to share single configuration among many installations of SmartMeter.io. SmartMeter.io can be configured to use shared tests, data, libraries and custom properties.
The advantage of this approach is easy maintenance and version updating, especially if installed on server.
4) Test configuration available in the report
