NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2013) - BlazeMeter, provider of the Apache JMeter™ compatible load testing platform for developers, today announced the release of its plugin for the leading open-source blogging software, WordPress. WordPress developers can now launch high volume load tests and optimize WordPress websites in minutes.
BlazeMeter's new WordPress plugin allows users to utilize cloud testing services to optimize the performance of their WordPress sites using BlazeMeter's load testing developer platform.
"BlazeMeter's WordPress plugin has insight into the actual WordPress installation and generates an Apache JMeter and a Selenium script for you automatically. It then provisions and configures a cluster of up to 100 dedicated servers ready to run on demand," said Alon Girmonsky, Founder & CEO of BlazeMeter. "All this is done automatically, saving developers days of scripting, provisioning and configuring, allowing developers to focus on their web and mobile applications."
The BlazeMeter plugin supports WordPress 3.1 or higher. The plugin will create a load script that will simulate both anonymous users and authenticated users visiting the WordPress website. During a load test, a dedicated cluster of load engines is launched from a preconfigured geographic location. These servers then generate traffic based on the parameters which the user defines in the BlazeMeter plugin.
During the load, real time measurements of KPIs present themselves on the report dashboard, where users can easily evaluate system performance and run numerous iterations, allowing users to locate bugs and bottlenecks, fix and re-test time and time again.
Integration details can be found on our Knowledge Base under BlazeMeter WordPress Plugin.
Join BlazeMeter at the NYC Webscale Group Meetup on Thursday, March 28 from 7-9pm EDT, to discuss "Finding & Fixing Performance Bottlenecks At Web Scale."
