Hello everyone! Kernl got some pretty interesting updates this month, so let’s dive in!
Average & Median Response Times for Load Tests – Kernl’s WordPress load testing services has always had this data available, we just never surfaced it in a way that was easy to consume. You’ll now see a new tab when you run a load test with information about average and median response times during the course of your test.
Progress Bar for Load Test Initialization – When you create a load test you will now see a progress bar that indicates how far in the process of instantiating your infrastructure we are. Prior to this update it was easy to think that the process had stalled out or broke.
Bug Fixes & Other
- Load test site ownership verification would fail to certain types of HTML minification. This has been resolve.
- Our internal analytics services has been refactors to be a singleton. This reduced each app server’s memory footprint by 5MB.
- The public license validate endpoint now has a 10 second cache on it. This helps us deal with any sort of burst traffic from license validations.
- All packages have been update on our servers.
Thats it for June! If you have any questions reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
