Important Note: For optimal performance and compatibility, we strongly advise using "ByteBlower GUI 2.21" in conjunction with "ByteBlower Server 2.21," "MeetingPoint 2.21," and "ByteBlower Endpoint 2.21."
With the all new ByteBlower 2.21 release, you are all set to get your hands on these exciting new features
Heartbeating Mode (Endpoint):
Introducing Heartbeating Mode: Maintain seamless contact with ByteBlower Endpoints by sending regular heartbeats after specified intervalsthrough the duration of the test. Enable or disable this mode via "File" -> "Project Properties" -> "Scenario" -> "Wireless Endpoints" -> "Keep contact with each ByteBlower Endpoint".
Note: Heartbeating Mode is enabled by default for new projects at a 5-second interval. Ensure manual activation for older project files.

Realtime Results (Endpoint):
Experience real-time insights with ByteBlower Endpoint during active test scenarios. Ensure "Heartbeating Mode" is active before project execution for real-time ByteBlower Endpoint results.
Longer duration tests are now more robust than ever. Traditionally, these tests necessitated substantial data transmission towards the scenario's conclusion, often causing disruptions on less stable connections.
However, with the introduction of "Heartbeating Mode," this issue is mitigated. Results from the endpoints are now transmitted at defined intervals throughout the test, significantly reducing data transmission near the end of scenarios. This enhancement assures heightened stability during extended tests, ensuring your results remain uninterrupted.
Preserved Reporting (Endpoint):
Forget the worry of losing data. "Heartbeating Mode" in ByteBlower 2.21 now offers partial result reporting. Even if a device drops out, results up to the last interval are preserved. Ensure "Heartbeating Mode" is enabled for this safeguard.
Flexible TPID Configuration:
Unlock the potential of Q-in-Q and diverse TPID configurations for your VLAN-tagged traffic plans. ByteBlower 2.21 now lets you effortlessly configure various common TPID types via the GUI. Ideal for scenarios involving distinct inner and outer VLANs with different TPIDs.
IPv6 Firewall Traversal:
Introducing the dedicated firewall option for IPv6 traffic, addressing challenges related to downstream traffic transmission.
Refreshed ByteBlower Reports:
A refreshed reporting format awaits you right after running a new scenario. We've maintained the core features while ushering in a modern aesthetic.
Note: Large scale tests may fall back to old version of HTML report.
More User-Friendly than Ever:
Simplify your experience by ensuring that your preferences take the lead over automatic methods, all without interrupting you with runtime issues, unless absolutely necessary.
We've fine-tuned the user interface to ensure a smoother and more pleasant experience.
