Troubleshooting tools have evolved! But what about performance testing? There are newer, better tools, but are the same black box testing methods from the late 2000s still being used to check the response? Is this adequate for today’s decomposed services? Let's examine this space.
Tracetest now works with Keptn, a control plane and micro platform for cloud-native application delivery and operations that augments any standard Kubernetes cluster to support delivery based on automated quality gates and self-healing operations workflows.
Today, we're happily announcing that Tracetest now works with k6, a modern load-testing tool used by thousands of developers worldwide. The combination of k6 and Tracetest allows your load tests to check across your entire microservice, FaaS, or Kubernetes-based applications.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to install Tracetest and the OTel Demo App on Nomad running locally using HashiQube. I will then show you how to create and run a simple test with Tracetest, using a couple of Traces from the OTel Demo App.
As a back-end engineer, embracing the DevOps mindset and 'shift-left' mentality means more power and responsibility. Don't stop at code commit. Implement observability and testing tools to release high-quality code. Check out the open-source ecosystem for available tools!
In development and production it’s useful to be able to select a test and run it with a value you specify at run time. This is exactly what you’ll learn in this blog post. Tracetest now enables you to run ad hoc tests!
Distributed system testing is complicated. In this blog post, you’ll learn how to create tests to validate complex user processes that require multiple API endpoints to be called in a particular sequence.
Want to run trace-based tests with Elastic APM? Today is your lucky day. We're happy to announce that Tracetest now integrates with Elastic Observability APM.
