Admins can run nGrinder controller using the following command. java -XX:MaxPermGen:200m -jar ngrinder-controller-X.X.war
nGrinder controller war file became the self-executable and Tomcat mount is supported as well. Admins can download agents and monitors from the controller and users can download private agents and monitors from the controller. The downloaded agent/monitor packages already contains the pre-defined configuration to connect the controller from which they are downloaded, so that no agent configuration is necessary. See new Installation Guide.
No more controller-agent connection problem
Previously nGrinder controller was bound to only one IP among all available IPs in the single machine. Sometimes this made it difficult to run nGrinder in which the internal and external IP are separated.(such as EC2)
Now nGrinder controller is bound to all available IPs in the OS to listen all connection requests such as agent connection, cluster member discovery, web connections so that the less connection error will be occurred.
Even IP6 are fully supported.
Easier command line options
The controller and agents now have the detailed command line interface. Please run with -h when executing them to see the available options. Even multiple agent and controller executions in a single machine have become very easy.
Now agents can be upgradable by clicking "Update" button in the controller's agent management page. See Agent auto update
Very small monitor package(<5MB)
The underlying "The Grinder" engine supports only per process ramp up, but not thread ramp up. nGrinder has enhanced The Grinder engine to support the thread ramp up as well so that more smooth ramp up can be performed.
Underlying SVNKit has been upgraded to 1.8.3 version so that 1.8 SVN client works well
Fix the access deny issue when followers access the other's SVN.
More consistent configuration keys.
Configuration keys used in the previous version are supported as well. However we recommends to use the new system configuration keys. You can see the configuration key mapping table in the followings.
