Video Streaming Plugin 6.1.0 for JMeter released

We’re happy to announce the release of the new version 6.1.0 of our UBIKLOADPACK Video Streaming plugin for Apache JMeter with many bug fixes and the following new features.

This plugin allows seamless, ultra-realistic and easy load testing of Live and VOD streams using HLS, MPEG-DASH and HSS formats.

It is used by  major actors of the market.

Automatic handling of Audio Stream

Now the plugin automatically handles the playing simulation of the Audio playlist besides the Video playlist for the 3 formats HLS, Mpeg-Dash and HSS.

In case of Live Streaming simulation, it will automatically detect it and also update the corresponding manifest for HLS v4.

Handling of huge playlists

Our plugin is now able to efficiently handle playlists of more than 8 hours with high refresh rate (2s). This makes it one of the most powerful ones on the market allowing you to reduce your infrastructure costs when load testing such streams or shorter ones.

IP – Spoofing

We add in this version ability to do IP-spoofing :

ULP IP-Spoofing

New metrics

Besides existing metrics, we introduced the following new metrics:

  • « ulp_hits »  provides the number of HTTP request that were made when reading 1 video stream.
  • « ulp_avg_chunk_time »  provides the average chunk download time when reading 1 video stream.
  • « ulp_avg_manifest_time »  provides the average manifest download time when reading 1 video stream.

Better bandwidth measurement

With minimum JMeter 3.1 version as a new requirement, we now also provide the « sent » metric.

Reported network metrics previously provided the uncompressed size of video chunks and manifest. We now provide the compressed size which reflects real network traffic.

Support of upcoming Apache JMeter 4.0

The new version 4.0 of Apache JMeter is coming soon with again a bunch of new features that make scripting and load testing even more productive and nice.

You can see some of the new features and bug fixes reading this github page.
