Sauce Labs is happy to announce Real Device Cloud support for monitoring mobile performance for automated tests.

By including the desired capability recordDeviceVitals in your Appium test script, you can collect performance statistics for the real devices used in your tests, including CPU, Network, Memory, and Thread performance.


Usage information and further info can be found here.


Happy testing,

Asaf Saar
Director of Product Management

In our continuing efforts to provide the best performing, most up-to-date platform for our users, Sauce Labs will discontinue support for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7 on November 12, 2018.  We made this decision due to reduced market share of these versions, along with diminished usage by our customers. 

We strongly recommend that customers update their tests to the current supported versions and devices. Our Platform Configurator always has the most up-to-date list of supported browsers and operating systems.

Please contact support@saucelabs.com if you have any questions or need additional information.

Happy Testing,
Samantha Coffman
Product Manager
