Goose, the highly scalable load testing tool created by Tag1 Consulting, has undergone a number of improvements since its creation. Asynchronous support created a significant boost in performance, but Jeremy felt there was still room for improvement.

In previous posts we’ve talked about Goose, and Gaggles, and how they work. Running Goose for an actual client load test is the true test of its use and, like any software, one of the best ways to find out where additional improvements can be made. Here, we’ll walk through how we set up and proceeded through a test with a Tag1 client, what we found, and where, and what Goose improvements are being added...

Introduced in Goose 0.7, Async enables the simulation of considerably more "users" by giving up the CPU when a task is blocked. For example, when a Goose "user" requests a web page, it's blocked until the server responds. Without Async, Goose blocks an entire CPU core while waiting for that response. With Async, Goose makes the request, then gives up the core (ie, sleeps) allowing another "user" to make a request with that same core...

Drupal 8’s end of life is only a year away (Nov 2021), and that date is unchangeable. Are you ready? Do you need to know more about why you should get started upgrading? Do you want to know if there’s going to be a Drupal 8 Extended Support program (spoiler: there isn’t).

Peta Hoyes, COO, and Fabian Franz, Vice President of Software Engineering, of Tag1 Consulting discuss how teams are working collaboratively in real time and asynchronously more than ever before. Content management systems (CMS) need to meet the needs of users, but to date no system offers real time collaboration, because building collaborative software is extremely complex. Yjs, a real-time collaboration framework abstracts all this complexity, allowing you to enable collaboration in any application. Working with...

We’re going to dig into the process of a working Gaggle, so you can see how it runs, and how to deal with some of the errors you might encounter as you start working with this feature of Goose. Goose does not currently have a UI; this example expects you to be familiar with the command line interface (CLI). This example uses one Manager and two Workers, so there are three different things going...
