Bigger, longer tests using Dashboards




Monitoring live test-results is a large benefit to endurance tests. This version of the ByteBlower GUI makes the results of the Realtime view available for other dedicated tools like Prometheus and Grafana. This allows you to
  • Run longer tests, including multi-day test runs.
  • Add more flows to a scenario since many of the CPU-intensive tasks are delegated to dedicated tools

ByteBlower GUI 2.18.0 Changelog

New Features
  • Realtime Results are now available as a target for monitoring solutions such as Prometheus. Adding Grafana, you get stunning real time graphs.
Enhancements
  • Project Properties can now be specified on a new location. Have a look under Menu > File > Project Properties. Previously, these properties were integrated in the Preferences, and it was not clear enough that these properties were part of the current ByteBlower Project.
  • You can now disable graphs with results over time in the reports.
  • If you have more than 100 flows in your scenario, graphs with results over time will be disabled automatically.
  • ByteBlower CLT on macOS 12 Monterey. This build does require installing an Java JDK separately. This version has been tested with binaries from Adoptium. 
  • Enhanced PCAP Frame Import functionality.
Fixed Bugs
  • Modifications made to items in the TCP view and Frame Blasting view are now immediately visible.
Known Issues
  • Archive View. Reports containing TCP results can not be regenerated. The reports are generated fine however right after a test finishes.
  • On Mac, the Dark Mode is not activated automatically at night.

Server 2.16.4  (2022-05-25)

Enhancements

  • The ByteBlower support tool (byteblower-support-tool) now collects additional information to better investigate the ByteBlower update system.  The following items are now added:
    • The HTTP Proxy configuration of the ByteBlower server
    • Logging of the ByteBlower update system (ByteBlower 1300, 2100, 3100, 3200 and 4100 series servers)

Fixes

  • The ByteBlower update system could not handle an empty HTTP Proxy configuration, resulting in a crash.
    • The ByteBlower Update system did not parse some old style version numbers correctly.  In this case the server was not able to update.
      This issue only occurs when such a specific version was installed on the server earlier on.
  • The ByteBlower Update system sometimes required updating twice.
  • The ByteBlower 5100 server series now allows having a trunking interface with less than 3 interfaces.

Server 2.16.2  (2022-04-28)

Fixes

  • Fixed a MeetingPoint crash when Wireless Endpoint results came in after the GUI cleaned up its resources.

Server 2.16.0  (2022-04-11)

Enhancements

  • Configuration of standard port configurations of the ByteBlower server has been made easier.

            → It is now possible to select the current interface and change it (Trunk ↔ Non-Trunk) and apply a preset.

            → This allows the user more control and flexibility in assigning interfaces and the view in the ByteBlower GUI.
