Simply way to determine if a script can deal with load tests

Postby KenTobey » Wed Jul 19, 2017 2:34 pm

Hi there.

What is a simple way to tell if my script is suitable to use in a multi-browser server loading experiment.

This would seem to a prerequisite to starting such a task.

Thanks

A great question to ask KenTobey.

We call this requirement "load test safe" in eValid's context.

This as described here in detail:

http://www.evalid.us/Products/Documenta ... .safe.html

This gist of this is that the script can't depend on any desktop resource during playback.

If it did then very likely two (or more) of the tests would interact with each other, via the desktop, and you would have "crazy" results.

The sure way to test if your script is load test safe is to run the script with the eValid browser minimized.

If it runs OK when minimized then you know it is load test safe.

As the document describes, you can use Lock/Unlock on scripts that may need to share the desktop, but even with this in place you are creating delays in playback due to the desktop having
to be shared temporally between multiple playback images.

The Lock/Unlock feature works OK, but not having to use that expedient is a big advantage.
