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...

DrupalCons are unquestionably the biggest events of the year in the Drupal community. It’s an opportunity for developers, designers, users, customers, and businesses to get together and talk about everything Drupal! This year has been a difficult one for conferences, as everyone cancels, reschedules, or moves online. DrupalCon has been no exception to this, bringing both of this year’s conferences online, in an effort to continue fostering the project’s strong community. Always wanted to go...

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.

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...

Goose, the load testing software created by Tag1 CEO Jeremy Andrews has had a number of improvements since its creation. One of the most significant improvements is the addition of Gaggles. A Gaggle is a distributed load test, made up of one Manager process and one or more Worker processes. The comparable concept in Locust is a Swarm, and it's critical for Locust as Python can only make use of a single core: you have...

In our blog, we’ve previously had a Tag1 Team Talk about Goose, by Tag1 CEO Jeremy Andrews. Goose is a Locust-inspired load testing tool In Rust. Goose has been effective in helping Tag1 support its clients by ensuring their websites hold up under stress.

At DrupalCon Global 2020, Moshe Weitzman, Senior Architect and Project Lead at Tag1, and the creator of Drush (the Drupal Command Line), presented his case for a more robust command line tool for Drupal administration. Many Drupal developers and website builders rely on command line tools to get their work done.

Moshe Weitzman, Senior Architect and Project Lead, gave a talk at DrupalCon Global 2020 to introduce Drupal Test Traits -- a new open source project started by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Drupal Test Traits (DTT) are designed for use with Drupal websites that have existing content, where part of your testing includes checking your content, instead of tearing your website down and reinstalling Drupal.
