Dynamic Infrastructure (OpenShift) - NeoLoad Web can interact with container orchestrators, currently OpenShift, to provision and use load testing infrastructure automatically for each test. When a test is run through NeoLoad Web, controllers and load generators are spun up for the duration of the test and released once the test is finished. For more information, see Infrastructure providers in NeoLoad Web documentation. See also the Important License requirements section below to access the functionality.
Resource reservation - Previously released in preview mode, now generally available. Reserve load testing infrastructure (Controllers and Load Generators) and Virtual Users to guarantee resources are available for a time slot and avoid testing schedule conflicts among the teams. See the Important License requirements section below to access the functionality.
Enhanced Dynatrace integration - The HTTP header name used between NeoLoad and Dynatrace can now be customized to use the same value as other testing tools integrated with AppDynamics. The default value is the one recommended by Dynatrace. For more information, see Dynatrace.
New CSV format for raw data - The format of the CSV created when exporting raw data at transaction level has been changed. Updates include the elapsed time which is now in milliseconds, a new absolute time and a Virtual User ID to identify the instance of the Virtual User. For more information, see Raw data export.
The CSV format used when exporting Transaction raw data from the Controller has changed and is incompatible with the previous format.
If the header name for Dynatrace integration was configured through the configuration file, then it will be taken in account for “Dynatrace AppMon” only, not for “Dynatrace” in the new release.
Important License requirements
Dynamic Infrastructure and Resource reservation features are included in the Enterprise edition and require that:
The Enterprise license key is installed in NeoLoad Web, not anymore in Neotys Team Server. Note that NeoLoad Controllers from version 6.8 can lease licenses from NeoLoad Web.
