PC12.60 looks like ALM Octane!

I just did install the new #PerformanceCenter 12.60 server and was surprised by the new look and feel: It is now a pure HTML5 web frontend and looks like #ALM #Octane!!!

You can now define recurrent timeslots for your performance tests if you e.g. want to run performance tests on a weekly or daily (nightly) basis.

Initializing run looks more and more like #StormRunner Load:

All results can be analyzed while the test is running interactively. This view is still available and you can continue analyze the results when the performance test is completed.

#VuGen 12.60 is also now in Micro Focus layout and colors. The following screenshot shows the recording summary. I was deselecting google-analytics etc. and did regenerate the script so that these external pages do not get stressed by my load test.

New VuGen 12.60 also supports the new JavaScript based lightwight #TruWeb protocol:

I was also experimenting with the #Atom IDE plugin which allows you to edit and even run TruWeb scripts from within your Atom IDE:

Also the Performance Center Administration interface is pure Web frontend, runs in all browsers and can comes with a nice looking Dashboard:

If you want to try Performance Center yourself: Register for a free trial:

If you are new to load testing I would recommend the simple, smart an scalable StormRunner Load SaaS based solution:

You can simply register for a trial and will have your own trial version available within minutes. With StormRunner Load there is nothing you need to install, maybe a scripting environment, if you want.

PS: The screenshots are actually from Performance Center 12.61 release. I also did install Patch 1 for Performance Center 12.60. If you install this patch your Performance Center will show up as “Performance Center 12.61”.
