eValid Supports Mobile Via Device Imitation

We know that many of our customers use eValid in "monitoring mode" which means, roughly, that they use eValid playbacks to collect detailed data about the behavior of their application (performance, validity, reliability, etc.). In most cases these test are run from from one or more geographic locations -- to show (and validate) performance from various locations worldwide.

We know that some of our "monitoring mode" users run multiple millions of tests per month, and that they run tests on some of the very most sophisticated business process software systems. You can get eValid to imitate any mobile device. There are many, many such.
Here is the simple batch command that does it:

start evalid -AGENT "Mozilla/5.0
    (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en)
    AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0
    Mobile/1A543a Safari/419.3"
As the number of devices grows, this especially affects our monitoring customers. But they're covered because they can monitor ANY device easily, and probably with existing test scripts.
You can also see Starting eValid With A Specific User Agent String (UAS) and Illustration of User Agent String Modification.

Feel free to contact us for more details, worked examples, comparative performance checks, etc.
