See here for a complete list of all changes.
Detailed status reporting removed from Master Controller
The Master Controller no longer supports listing the status of each individual test user when printing the load test status to the console. Printing the aggregated status per scenario is now the only option.
This reduction has allowed us to drastically reduce the amount of data that needs to be transferred from the Agent Controllers to the Master Controller every five seconds. Note that backward compatibility with Agent Controllers from a previous version of XLT 7.x is maintained.
Report generator enhanced
The Report Generator has been further enhanced to run faster and use fewer resources. This includes optimizations when parsing CSV files and executing request processing rules (also known as merge rules).
List of supported data centers updated
XLT ships with
gce_admin, our tools for managing machine instances in the Amazon and Google clouds. These tools now support recently opened data centers (regions).
In AWS, not all regions are immediately available to your account, but only after you opt in.
ec2_admin automatically filters out regions that are not enabled for your account. So if you miss a data center in
ec2_admin, you may need to opt in first.
Improved “infinity” cells in comparison reports
Fixed an issue with “infinity” table cells in comparison reports. The infinity symbol is now easier to recognize and has the correct background shading when the mouse is over it.
