Frontend performance metrics

Frontend performance metrics

Core Web Vitals is a set of key frontend performance metrics that measure user-perceived performance of a web application.

The dashboard will now visualize the performance of every page for load tests that use Artillery's Playwright integration. This will help you understand how user-perceived performance is affected by high load.

Artillery CLI v2.0.0-33 is out

AWS Fargate support

This release adds support for running tests on AWS Fargate. Scale out your load tests horizontally from any of the six supported regions.

Copied to clipboard!
artillery run-fargate --count 10 --region us-east-1 my-script.yml

Supported regions:

  • us-east-1
  • us-west-1
  • eu-west-1
  • eu-central-1
  • ap-south-1
  • ap-northeast-1

AWS Fargate is a serverless solution that requires no infrastructure to be managed, and unlike AWS Lambda does not impose a restriction on the duration of your load tests.

Artillery's Playwright integration is fully supported on Fargate, to let you run browser-based load tests at scale with ease.

Playwright support

Playwright support is now built into Artillery. The integration in artillery-engine-playwright is now bundled into the Artillery CLI.

  • The version of Playwright used by the integration has been updated to v1.3.4
  • Web Vitals tracking has been improved to provide more accurate measurements
  • Playwright scenario file may now be loaded via testFunction attribute rather than flowFunction
  • flow attribute may now be omitted in Playwright engine scenarios

Other fixes & improvements

  • Pass lambdaRoleArn to AWS Lambda engine correctly
  • Fix issue with returning matched groups from regexp capture
  • Track & report downloaded data in HTTP tests via http.downloaded_bytes metric
  • Environment variables may now be accessed through the special $env variable (the current way of accessing those via $processEnvironment is still supported but will be deprecated in future)
  • Dependency updates to address deprecation and security notices
