FunkLoad 1.16.1 is out!


Fri 29 July 2011 By Benoit Delbosc

The latest version of FunkLoad is now available for download. For those who don't know, FunkLoad is our home made stress tool, specifically designed to create complex test scenarios and to produce detailed reports. We use it here at Nuxeo as part of our continuous testing of the Nuxeo Platform and all related distributions such as Nuxeo DM, but is a generic tool that can be used for any software. Plus, like everything we do, it's open source software. To learn specifics, Tarek Ziadé has just written a nice tutorial, How to stress test your app using funkload, part 1, about it.

  • FunkLoad 1.16 comes with a new monitoring plugin contribution from Krzysztof A. Adamski. It enables you to extend the existing monitoring capabilities by adding your own plugins. There are 2 examples you'll find in the contrib folder: the Munin and Nagios plugins -- with these plugins you can display in the FunkLoad report the information taken from Munin or Nagios agents.

  • Since 1.16 FunkLoad supports HEAD or OPTIONS requests or whatever method name you want, this gives you the ability to write WebDAV tests.

  • The distributed mode has been enhanced by Adrew McFague to support different python packages and python paths for nodes.

  • Python 2.7 is now supported, as usual a few bugs have been fixed, check the changelog for more information.

  • FunkLoad has a new logo designed by Thibault Soulcié!
