ByteBlower GUI 2.2 is no longer available for download. Please contact our support desk of you think you need this specific version.

WARNING: A 2.2.x GUI only works with a 2.1.x server or higher. To be able to use all new features, we advice to update the server to the latest 2.2.x version! See the server download page for information how to install this server version. GUI 2.x can be installed side by side with an 1.x GUI.

WARNING: On Mac OS X, the 2.2.x GUI needs to be installed on version 10.10 (Yosemite) or later.

Changelog 2.2.10

  • User Interface
    • Fixed bug in the Frame View. Setting a manual IPv6 address is again possible.
    • Displaying user-friendly names in the Congestion Avoidance Algorithm column in the TCP View.
    • Fixed bug in the realtime results processor when no tcp traffic was received during an interval.

Changelog 2.2.8

  • Reporting
    • Optimized report generator. Reports are generated much faster now.
    • HTML reports are generated first, and are opened immediately while other formats are being generated.
  • User Interface
    • The Progress View shows now which type of report is being generated. (html/pdf/csv...)
    • The Archive View dynamically updates itself while new tests are executed or reports are created.

Changelog 2.2.6

  • User Interface
    • Closing the GUI while generating a report is not causing an error anymore.
    • Improved cleanup handling of canceled HTTP flows.
    • Importing Frames from pcap files is working again.
    • Allowing to send a mix of IPv4 and ARP packets.
    • Removed the possibility to override discovered NAT addresses in the Frame View on Layer 4, because this was confusing.

  • Runtime
    • Optimized data communication for realtime results.

Changelog 2.2.4

  • User Interface
    • In the Port View, NAT can now be turned off again.
    • When the Scenario Pause dialog appears, you can now still access the entire GUI.
    • Proper disposal of closed views. Input not set any more on disposed widgets.
    • Added missing menu Icons on Windows.
    • Executed Test meta data will immediately be persisted when a test is started. Now, when you are running a long stab test, and somewhere in the middle there is a power outage, you can still generate reports from the gathered test data up until then.
    • Removed unused Batch Initialization Time preference page.
    • Fixed estimated test end time in the Progress View.

  • Reporting
    • Assuring that the aggregate TCP throughput is using the last available data.
    • Improved results over time chart when the duration of snapshots is bigger than the resolution. This is only noticeable for very short tests, where all points are clearly distinguishable.
    • Fixed bug when generating charts containing empty series. For example when eavesdroppers received no traffic.
  • Runtime
    • Generating bursty traffic is possible again, because of a bugfix in the ByteBlower server software.

Changelog 2.2.2

  • User Interface
    • Port Forwarding now also works when NAT was first set to No.
    • ByteBlower Ports can be deleted again.
    • Fixed desktop icon on Windows.
    • Rounded view tabs.

  • Reporting
    • Fixed positioning of the first second of results over time charts in the report.
    • Latency distribution charts are no longer hidden.

Changelog 2.2.0

  • User interface enhancements
    • The New Port Forwarding View allows for fine-grained configuration of port mapping rules.
    • The Realtime View now features automatic highlighting of updated values.
    • The file menu includes links to recent projects.
    • When only a single scenario/batch is available, the quick run buttons will allow for these to be started immediately.
    • New  Cubic TCP Congestion Avoidance Algorithms.
    • A pause can be configured between initializing and running the test.
  • User interface bugfixes
    • Fixed Jump functionality.
  • Reporting
    • Optimized report generator. Huge reports can now be generated, without using lots of memory and cpu.
    • Aligned charts, so they can easily be compared.
    • Fixed page length for PDF reports.
  • Runtime enhancements
    • Improved handling of realtime test results, resulting in reduced memory footprint and enabling multi-day endurance tests.
    • Port forwarding functionality.
    • Reduced management network overhead by aggregating interaction with the ByteBlower server.
    • Asynchronous DHCP leads to much faster initialization times.
    • Faster and more robust NAT discovery.
    • Caching resolved MAC addresses.
    • A configurable grace period limits the time to wait for HTTP sessions to die.
