Can you give me an explanation of eValid's Multiple Value Substitution during LoadTest Runs and how It works?
Please be as detailed as possible.
Thanks for posting your question, LeillaC.
When running an eValid LoadTest that involves simulating multiple users -- a different one for each browser session -- you can use the DataSynthesis command to perform value substitution for each script.
To configure an eValid LoadTest to be run under the data synthesis command follow these simple instructions
(1) Prepare the *.evs script by specifying the "DataSynthesisFile" command, followed by the name of the data file at the beginning of the script file.
(2) Create the raw data file -- where you'll add in the names and details of each user -- by clicking on the "Edit DataSynthesisFile" command button from the eValid script toolbar.
(3) Create a new eValid LoadTest script by clicking on the "File> New LoadTest" pulldown from eValid; or edit an existing *.evl file to include the new information.
(4) From the *.evl file, the last arguments fed to eValid for the LoadTest run are the command line switches, which are added to the loadtest to produce specific results.
For the eValid sessions that will be using data parameterization, simply add the "-DATASYN" switch as part of the last argument in a loadtest script.
(5) Press Play!
