Welcome to the inaugural installment of Shipping Friday!
Shipping Friday is our new weekly update which answers one question: “what did you ship this week?”
We shipped a minor update to the preview release of Artillery Pro. Nothing major in this one - just making Fargate the default launch type, a couple of fixes, and a bunch of internal refactoring to make the code tidier.
See full release notes in Artillery Pro Changelog
Work is continuing on the next major release of Artillery Core. We shipped another preview release, and if you’re feeling brave, as usual it’s just one
npm install away:
npm install -g firstname.lastname@example.org
Dennis published a whopper of a blog post which you should definitely check out!
We shipped support for sending metrics to Mixpanel in the official publish-metrics plugin.
Awesome work @EmiiFont! You’re the community MVP this week! 🏆 🙌
See the docs for
publish-metrics plugin for instructions on how to set it up.
Francesco shipped an Artillery integration for Keptn. This means that if you use Keptn, you can now use Artillery to run load tests and smoke tests to help your services maintain their SLOs. (Not using Keptn yet? You should definitely check it out!)
The code is on Github: https://github.com/keptn-sandbox/artillery-service
You’ll be able to catch Francesco’s demo of the integration at the next Keptn User Group meeting.
📬 Yep! (coffee and keyboard not included)
OK, these weren’t shipped last week, but they’re worth checking out if you have a few minutes and if production load testing sounds intriguing!
This lightning talk was given by yours truly back in May at SLOConf - the first conference dedicated to the art & practice of SLOs. It explores load testing in production for building an extra margin of safety around your SLOs.
Load testing. In production. is a deeper dive into production load testing, how it works and how to implement it in practice.
