WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON FOR WPM (Updated July 15, 2020)

Since the release of Web Performance Monitor 2020.2, there have been a lot of things going on behind the scenes here at SolarWinds. Everything from new WPM specific features to Orion platform enhancements are in the works! See below:

  • Enhancements to recorder – Additional features and capabilities for the new recorder to allow for the successful capture and replay of more scenarios, on more web apps.
  • Enhancements to Pingdom integration – Feature parity items for recordings saved to Pingdom such as recognizing key strokes and image match.
  • Support for FIPS Environments – ability to run, capture, and report on synthetic checks while in FIPS mode.

Feel free to submit feature requests for WPM here: Web Performance Monitor (formerly SeUM) Feature Requests

  • After some trials and tribulations with getting this published, the latest update has now been posted.

  • Are you able to expand on the 'Improved Web Application Support' feature?

    Does this include better Java and window handling at all?

  • Our company will be very excited to get our hands on this update!  WPM was very useful to help figure out some issues with our new proxy and "the internet is slow." 

  • Is there a ballpark date for the new version? The conditional logic in the current version is too restricted to be of use & I could really do with having a version with more functionality in this area.

  • Unfortunately we do not publish timeline for feature releases. Feel free to reach out to me via email and let me know what your issues around the current version.

  • Hi Steven

    OK, here's one example, I have a transaction that I want to add a condition to, such that if some text is found, a button is pressed and the script ends, not executing any further steps. However, there doesn't appear to be a way to do this (perhaps I'm missing something)? I can get the script to conditionally click the button, but then it goes on to execute the rest of the transaction, which fails.  Now I could of course invert the conditional logic for the text match, but this would mean having an unnecessary wait for text “not” appearing.

    Going back to the timeline thing I'm not looking for an exact date. Even some idea if it's going to be this year? It's very difficult to plan ahead without knowing whats coming & roughly when.

  • Maybe roll this product into SAM?

  • keithjen​ I'm a little confused -  I would think you can do that in a few ways today, is this an application? Why not have the application spit out something that contains the word error when there does happen to be an error? That way you aren't "waiting" for the not text to appear.

    So instead of waiting for function, watch for the word "error" OR watch for the image you expect to load?

  • I'm afraid that I have no control over the application or it's output. The output that I'm looking for is actually the text that appears on a successful search. Then the conditional action is to logout.

    If the text doesn't appear the transaction carries out a few more steps to try to refresh the search but since the conditional step then executes the remainder of the code, these unwanted steps fail.

    So I need to be able to insert an exit step at the end of the conditional sequence & there is no way that I can see to do this.
