Getting started

This guide demonstrates how to start publishing web performance test results to Latency Lingo.

Input file

Latency Lingo depends on the results file generated by JMeter. Learn more about this file in the JMeter integration guide.

Example command to run tests and generate this file.
jmeter -n \
-t test-plan.jmx \
-l 20220810_test_results.csv

Support for other test runner result files is planned, but please reach out with your needs to help prioritize.

Install the CLI

The CLI is used to publish metrics from our test results file to Latency Lingo. CLI releases are available on the GitHub releases page.

For installation, simply download and extract the correct build for your operating system.

Example downloading and extracting the latest Mac OS X release.
curl -L \
| tar -xz

Move the executable to a bin directory included in your path for easier access.

Publish your results file

The publish command is used to send metrics from a test results file to Latency Lingo. Arguments are documented in the CLI reference.

Example publishing a test results file.
latency-lingo-cli publish \
--file ./20220810_test_results.csv \
--label "checkout flow"
--api-key 05b6c656-006b-4107-991d-96a5a2a3227c

Find your API key by signing up and viewing account settings.

The output logs will include a link to the created test run report.
