Mobile World Congress is Out of Session

23 March 2015 | Artyom Astafurov

Mobile World Congress in Barcelona gave attendees a glimpse into the future, through the lens of the Internet of Things (IoT). It's amazing how far things have come in just a few short years (analysts predict between 26 and 30 billion devices will be connected to the internet in five years). Entire pavilions at the show were dedicated to the IoT and connected devices, with devices ranging from connected showerheads through automated drones on display.

Apple Watch – Not Quite There Yet

Apple Watch

New Apple Watch, while highly anticipated, remains predominantly a niche product despite high hopes in the industry. It’s not that the idea is wrong – no one disputes that wearables can improve our lives in many ways. However, to date implementation of the idea has been sloppy, and has failed to deliver on the promise of a brighter future. Now all hopes are pinned on Apple, a company known for its ability to enter a challenging market and change the environment with one impeccable product.

Using JMeter for Distributed Load

20 February 2015 | Roman Denisenko


Sometimes during performance testing we have to deal with high-powered systems. Such systems can painlessly handle massive amounts of requests creating an extra headache: how can you emulate such a huge load yourself, without access to the full production side hardware capabilities? Another situation occurs when the system to be tested has multiple servers where the behavior is controlled by forces on the client’s side, and therefore we have to handle a geo-distributed load.

I think every performance engineer has faced the aforementioned issues at least once in his experience. The solution is to use distributed agents to emulate the load. Almost all commercial and free software provide abilities for the utilization of external agents which work simultaneously, increasing the amount of the overall load. In this article, I would like to talk about the ways to make the most popular free performance tool emulate the load from different agents. More specifically, I will talk about JMeter and its performance load agents.

DataArt presents the 1.3.1 release of the IoT/M2M framework DeviceHive

13 February 2015 | dmitry-vyrostkov

DataArt IoT team has prepared the 1.3.1 version of DeviceHive, its IoT/M2M framework. The new release is now available for a download.

We’ve added some new features, like the ability to login to a DeviceHive playground via OAuth from Facebook, Google+ or Github accounts. Our team did this by introducing a new authentication endpoint in the REST API, which allows clients to exchange the OAuth authorization code for a DeviceHive access key. As a result, the Admin Console now includes colorful “Sign-in with …” buttons.

You can find more information about 1.3.1 release at the DeviceHive page.
