How to monitor the performance?

While StresStimulus is not specifically designed for application performance monitoring, many users use it that way.

StresStimulus has a robust command-line interface described here http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Automation
Using the CLI, you can launch a preconfigured test, specify where to store or email the test performance report and receive a return code about passing or failing the test.
You can launch the test from a scheduler (let's say every 10 minutes) or from any CIS system (Jenkins, SimCity, TFS, etc.)

Another option is to start a series of extended test (with multi-day duration) with, let’s say, 10-minute pause between iterations.

I want to monitor the performance of the platform, carrying out a variety of common operations, over a long period of time (weeks ideally): log on and perform a series of test transactions once every ten minutes over the course of several weeks or indefinitely, so I can review the statistics and see whether performance is stable across the day and week, or varies. I also want to be able to spot long term trends such as operations which are getting incrementally slower over a period of months. How to accomplish that with StresStimulus?

    It looks like StresStimulus root certificate is not trusted on this machine. Here are the instructions to trust the certificate http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Enabling+HTTPS+in+standalone+version
    Note that you need to have sufficient privileges on the machine to trust a root certificate.

    You can use StresStimulus with no connection to the Internet. To activate your license in this environment, you need to request an offline license as described here https://www.stresstimulus.com/forum/how-to-activate-stresstimulus-without-access-to-th-583

    Is it possible for the load testing to work without connection to the internet (Meaning we can’t connect to the StresStimulus web proxy).

    Hi Team,

    I'm using the stress stimulus version 4.9.6883x64 CLR 4.0. Is there any ways i can publish the load test report from the tool level itself?

    Hi - I have a data set brought in from SQLServer. I have set the databinding to VU-Iter-Random in the data set and I am hiding the advanced databinding section form the individual parameters. However I am finding that it is moving sequentially through the data set.

    You don’t need to install anything on the iPad. However, the iPad must be connected through Wifi with a WIFI-enabled router, and a StresStimulus recording machine must be connected to the same router and be on the same subnet.

    Topic: Connecting to agent
    If your controller is on the same subnet as your agent, then in the agent Host/IP address field, use agent's internal IP address; No additional port forwarding configurations is required.
    If your controller is not on the same subnet as your agent, then in the agent Host/IP address field, use agent's public IP address and then configure port forwarding on the agent firewall.



    • If you want to connect to more than one agent machine on the same network, then every subsequent agent machine must listen on a different port. To change the agent listening port in the main menu Edit > Agent Options > change the listening port. Then set up port forwarding to that machine on the firewall at the specified agent listening port.

    Topic: Connecting to agent
    Is your controller is located on the same subnet as your agent with no additional router or firewall between them?
    • If yes, then you can use agents internal IP like xxx.yyy.###.### with no additional port forwarding configurations (like if the internal IP would be the public IP)
    • If no, then you cannot use such agent with the controller without the agent's public IP address and port forwarding configurations (see my next clarification.)
    If your agent machine is behind a firewall, then you would need to set up port forwarding on the firewall on port 49998 to the agent machine.

    If We don’t have a public IP address for the agent, only internal IP like xxx.yyy.###.###. What additional configuration on the firewall would be necessary?

    It will be much easier if the agent has a public IP Address. Otherwise, additional configuration on the firewall would be necessary as follows:

    • If your agent machine is behind a firewall, then you would need to set up port forwarding on the firewall on port 49998 to the agent machine.

    • If you want to connect to more than one agent machine on the same network, then every subsequent agent machine must listen on a different port. To change the agent listening port in the main menu Edit > Agent Options > change the listening port. Then set up port forwarding to that machine on the firewall at the specified agent listening port.
