Ideas for the Loadtest Portal

Got an idea? Share it here and we'll have a look at it.

LTP - 3G 4G speed emultaion

the 3G - 4G speed options in LTP need to have more options. as current options is 1Mbit then 11Mbit there is not alot of options that actually matches a regular 3G connection. there should be atlest 8mbit and 16mbit options available but as connection speeds differs from the various regions we run tests from i think even more options should be available (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 mbit) and after that maybe 10 16 and then the current options.

    I have found it useful before to throttle checks with other providers to give a more consistent view of regressions in the critical path or waterfall in general. The industry seems split on this with no consensus from Synthetic vendors.  But isn't the whole point of synthetic to control as many portions of the test as possible and let the application demonstrate if it's characteristics change?


    It would be good to have your view of this in general, and especially with 3G/4G you really want to actually do latency as well. Ref: Clumsy - http://jagt.github.io/clumsy/

    Actually, this idea is for our Loadtest Portal - it was sent in to the wrong portal (you can see the references to LTP in the text).

    But the idea is interesting, we can let it live and I can modify the text later.
