NeoLoad

Thumbnail icon

The Sumo Logic app for Neoload provides a high-level perspective, enabling monitoring of test execution, completion, termination, and tests in progress. It also tracks targeted projects, tests, scenarios, and workspaces while assessing overall test and quality status. Also the dashboards delve deeper into performance testing, offering insights into test frequency, test organization by workspace and projects, and various trends and tests with execution time and max virtual users (VUs). The app empowers users to make data-driven decisions, optimize testing strategies, and enhance overall performance testing efficiency.

NeoLoad is a solution for continuous performance testing software to automate API and application load testing. You can use a webhook in the NeoLoad platform to forward NeoLoad Web events to the Sumo Logic HTTP endpoint. Using these logs, you can monitor the web events in Sumo Logic. For more details, refer to the NeoLoad Documentation.

Event types

The Sumo Logic integration for NeoLoad ingests web events into Sumo Logic through an outgoing webhook available in NeoLoad. For more information on supported events that are ingested through the NeoLoad webhook, see the NeoLoad Documentation.

Setup

This section has instructions for collecting logs for the Sumo Logic NeoLoad webhook collection.

Source configuration

Follow the below steps to configure the Hosted Collector to receive NeoLoad events:

  1. In the Sumo Logic portal, create a new Hosted Collector or use an existing one.
  2. Then add a HTTP Logs and Metrics Source.
  3. Configure Source Category in the HTTP Source - for example, webhook/neoload - for the NeoLoad integration.
  4. Expand Advanced Options for Logs (Optional) section in the HTTP Source, then uncheck the Multiline Processing option and check One Message Per Request.
  5. Copy and save the endpoint URL of the source.

Vendor configuration

note

Users must be workspace administrators to access the webhooks.

Configure the webhook integration in NeoLoad to send events to the Sumo Logic HTTP source. Once configured, it will be triggered each time the events occur within your NeoLoad account.

Follow the steps to configure the NeoLoad webhook.

  1. Sign in to the NeoLoad account.

  2. In the left navigation panel, click Settings and select the Workspaces tab.

  3. Select the Webhooks tab. Click Create a Webhook. The webhook form appears.

  4. Enter webhook form data as follows:

    • Event. Select the Test started option to send the payload when a test starts or the Test ended option when a test is finished.
    • NAME. Provide a name for your webhook.
    • URL. Enter the Sumo Logic HTTP endpoint URL (source address) created above.
    • Payload. See the sample body payload below. For more details check NeoLoad Documentation.

    }
  5. Click Save.

  6. Verify NeoLoad events are getting ingested in Sumo Logic by executing the following query on Sumo Logic's Log Search panel.

`_sourceCategory=webhook/neoload`

Installing the NeoLoad app

To install the app, do the following:

  1. From the Sumo Logic navigation, select App Catalog.
  2. In the Search Apps field, search for and then select your app.
    Optionally, you can scroll down to preview the dashboards included with the app.
  3. To install the app, click Install App.
  4. Click Next in the Setup Data section.
  5. In the Configure section of the respective app, complete the following fields.
    1. Key. Select either of these options for the data source.
      • Choose Source Category, and select a source category from the list for Default Value.
      • Choose Custom, and enter a custom metadata field. Insert its value in Default Value.
  6. Click Next. You will be redirected to the Preview & Done section.

Your app will be installed in the Installed Apps folder and dashboard panels will start to fill automatically.

Each panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the panel was created. Results will not immediately be available, updating with full graphs and charts over time.

Viewing NeoLoad dashboards

All dashboards have a set of filters that you can apply to the entire dashboard. Use these filters to drill down and examine the data to a granular level.

  • You can change the time range for a dashboard or panel by selecting a predefined interval from a drop-down list, choosing a recently used time range, or specifying custom dates and times. Learn more.
  • You can use template variables to drill down and examine the data on a granular level. For more information, see Filter with template variables.
  • Most Next-Gen apps allow you to provide the scope at the installation time and are comprised of a key (_sourceCategory by default) and a default value for this key. Based on your input, the app dashboards will be parameterized with a dashboard variable, allowing you to change the dataset queried by all panels. This eliminates the need to create multiple copies of the same dashboard with different queries.
