As a result, customers will be able to gather and visualize load test data, as well as obtain dynamic, customizable dashboard views of their performance metrics, according to BlazeMeter CEO and founder Alon Girmonsky.
"Data analysis is most valuable when you can understand and act upon it instantly.
Testing makes it easy to trigger a symptom, but you need monitoring to identify the root problem in the first place," Girmonsky
and New Relic
provide their customers a full 360-degree view of their systems.
Customers can dynamically define the KPIs they want to analyze, query the application and instantly understand the specific quirks of their system," he
The growing BlazeMeter/New Relic
partnership is also a sign of how IT is increasing its use of machine data and big data to improve their software lifecycle -- design, development, testing and operations.
put it this way: "Considering that usually a test is being run hundreds of times per week, storing the application monitoring data in the context of the performance testing data is critical to get a clear picture.
To be clear, this picture should include: (a) what is being tested, (b) where the problems are and (c) using insights to identify solutions for any problems, he
By working together, BlazeMeter and New Relic
can let IT operations view test data immediately from within the highly-visual New Relic dashboard they are already used to, he
We asked Girmonsky
to define a "conversation" for understanding test data.
"Traditional load testing solutions provide out-of-the-box reporting of certain KPIs.
However, not all applications are created equal when it comes to performance testing.
Quite often, you need to do a customized drill down to find the real problems, to fix them and to get your app up and running," he
With BlazeMeter/New Relic
, users can actively query the KPIs that matter to them and receive instant answers.
"Successful performance testing goes hand-in-hand with sophisticated analytics and we are delighted to broaden our partnership with BlazeMeter
with this new integration," New Relic's Lapcevic added.
The BlazeMeter/New Relic
approach to APM-focused analytics will deliver particular value to mobile and hybrid apps projects, where SLAs and user experience are crucial to the success of apps, Girmonsky
"In mobile, there are many moving parts.
Therefore any platform that is being used for testing, must support all these by providing easy ways to record mobile scenarios and to be able to realistically emulate mobile traffic at scale," he
BlazeMeter's approach lets users "easily build a realistic simulation of any scenario," including networks, devices, scale and even location.
"You can run these tests on-demand and test different alternatives of provisioning.
You can conduct continuous testing until you reach the best provisioning alternative," Girmonsky
As to hybrid, Girmonsky
added, "We believe in the hybrid approach, where your local environment extends to the cloud.
described it for us.
"We first integrated with New Relic
using the Connect API, where we enabled BlazeMeter
users to visualize and store data coming from New Relic
in BlazeMeter - within the context of a test.
We then continued with the Platform API Integration, allowing New Relic users to visualize BlazeMeter's data as part of NewRelic's
set of dashboards," he
also just recently integrated with New Relic
to allow users to ask questions using NRQL, a natural language, on the complete data of the test, he

In a blog post, Alon Girmonsky, CEO and founder of BlazeMeter, said the company has been growing rapidly over the past four years and now has more than 60 employees spread across offices in Palo Alto, Calif., and Tel Aviv.
BlazeMeter has some 3,000 customers, with more than 300 viewed as large enterprise customers, he said.
"Developers and performance engineers want to achieve superior test coverage by using open source tools and tools that can integrate well into the developer ecosystem," Girmonsky
said in a statement.
"Joining forces with CA Technologies
will enable BlazeMeter
to continue developing our technology while enjoying the vast resources of CA Technologies
to better serve our customers."
CA and BlazeMeter
share a common vision for the future of open source-based continuous testing, Girmonsky
said in his
"While nothing compares to the feeling of building an independent company from scratch, I believe it is the right time for BlazeMeter
to join forces with CA Technologies-one of the top leaders in enterprise software," he
also noted that BlazeMeter's
commercial, self-service continuous application performance testing solution is compatible with the open-source Apache JMeter performance testing tool as well as other open source software tools like Selenium, Gatling and Locust.
