Shine the light on black box testing

Use observability to reduce time and effort in test creation + troubleshooting by 80%

Get Started

Build Tests Easily

  • 98% reduction in time to build a true E2E test: reduce from 12 hours to 15 minutes.
  • Use your existing tests: Cypress, Playwright, k6, Postman, and more.
  • Easier to build tests, so you can easily cover critical flows, resulting in fewer escaped defects.

Fix Failed Tests Quickly

  • 80% reduction in time to troubleshoot preproduction test failures.
  • See the full process, from web to backend, via trace captured with each test run.
  • Identify the root issue and assign the problem to the proper team.

Reduce Escaped Defects

  • Create and execute more end-to-end (E2E) tests.
  • Cover your full system in one test.
  • Improve overall instrumentation when using traces in developing tests.

Works With All Common Observability Tools

Tracetest works with your existing tests, adding deeper testability and visibility to test results by leveraging your existing tracing solution. See integrations.

Tracetest ensures reliable testing across local and CI envs and has a permanent spot in the Tyk toolkit to ensure our future releases are rock solid.

I just caught this demo of Tracetest cypress integration. It looks really cool providing a lot of information beyond the UI tests by also validating the microservice behaviors and allowing the dev or tester to examine the entire action in the backend.

I love the concept of Trace-Based-Testing (TBT). It marries testing and tracing quite nicely - why choose, when you can have both? Also, it helps drive Observability-driven-development (ODD), and brings developers, testers, SREs together. I’ve played around with Tracetest since its early versions and it’s been cool to see the product evolve. Definitely some cool stuff brewing!

My ultimate pick was Tracetest which was a phenomal show stopper for E2E testing and tracing use cases. A phenomenal improvement over other tools in the space that I’ve seen.

Tracetest is a really interesting solution helping us to build our tests cases based on OpenTelemetry. It opens doors to the testing community to build functional and non-functional test cases.

It looks like you already have the visualizations (I really like the model/component graph I saw in y'alls video demo of this) so it'd really be just the extension part. Well I have to say, I'm thrilled to see a project like this one out there.

KubeCon Europe 2024

Paris - Expo Porte De Versailles

Tracetest will be at KubeCon Europe in Paris throughout March 20-22, 2024. Come chat with us at our booth, try out Tracetest, and go back home with some swag. We will also be attending Observability Day on March 19th, the day before the conference, and would love to chat there.Have a lot of new capability to show, including the ability to execute trace-based tests as part of your Cypress and Playwright tests. These are TRUE end to end tests. We'd love to show you how you can get started with trace-based testing in no time at all!
