Topic: Transaction vs. request
In StresStimulus, a transaction includes multiple requests. Transactions are most often created during recording by entering their names in the recorder - http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Recording+with+Web+Browser
The response time of a transaction comprises response times of all requests in the transaction.

Could you explain what is the difference between Request and Transaction in the Stress Stimulus Report?

I privately sent you a link that you or your manager can use to schedule a support session. Just select one of the available daily timeslots, and you will be booked for a test configuration session where one of our support staff will fix your script and answer questions.

@George, Thank you for your quick response.

I am evaluating the tool and downloaded the trail version of stress stimulus. Can you help me in this scenario? I first tried to register myself using company registered email address, but it seems the company email policy restrict any email coming from external domains. Hence i have to register myself with personal email address.

If you could help me with your support email address, I will request my Manager to share across the details and schedule skype session to look into this issue. He has access to receive and sent email to external domains.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Once again, thank you for quick response.

Regards

Cookie correlation works automatically and usually does not require any manual correlation. Most of the time a different correlation issue is causing cookie correlation failure.

For general correlation info see http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Manual+Parameterization.

To give you specific solutions we would have to inspect your test via a screen sharing session. Please contact your support rep.

Hi Team,

Sorry for posting novice question, But i tried all possible way to pass through cookies and session id to integrated system subsequent request for authorization.

Scenario -

We have an application X (our main product) which is loading another application (Y) within an iframe. We have single signon mechanism which automatically login users into the other system. Application Y is java based web application and when trigger from application X its auto login itself by connecting to our identify management system.

The very scenarios where application x login work fine, I am able to extract cookie and pass it to the subsequent request of application X are able to retrieve and gives 200 OK status.

But, within the same scope, when we are running request which are part of application Y, we are getting unauthorized errors. Digging it shows that there are three parts passing in cookie for application Y i.e SESSION, XSRF-TOKEN, and JSESSIONID. I did extracted these three parts from previous request and passed in subsequent request, but no luck.

Can you guys please help me with some counters or route me to some documentation to resolve this.

Thanking you in advance

Thank you for your clarifications. Our product team will add support for PATCH requests. Expected delivery time - next week.

In the meantime, I posted it on the SUGGESTIONS & FEATURE REQUESTS forum here.

Thanks for your suggestion!

Yes, PATCH is being captured by Fiddler session without Stress Stimulus.

Unfortunately I dont have a public URL. Sorry

Are the PATCH requests being captured in Fiddler without using StresStimulus?


Do you have an example of a public URL that uses PATCH requests so we can test it?


Thanks

Good day,

Just had a question with regard to scripting in Stress Stimulus. I have identified whenever a PATCH call( request type for partial modification, similar to GET and POST) is being hit in the application, it is not getting recorded in Stress Stimulus. Request are even not available in Fiddler session of SS which are created by default. Not sure if the tool is rejecting the same or if it’s a config issue.

As an alternative, I was able to record this call by opening the application and Fiddler side by side and later plug the call into the already recorded script.

I assume SS is able to handle GET and POST very well and not PATCH.

Could you please let us know if there is an alternative solution or setting to work with PATCH request type as doing it manually is a tedious task if there are a number of patch calls.

Topic: Test case mix weight
You can’t set the mix weight of a test case after creating TC Groups as per documentation described http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc49/Sequential+Test+Case+Groups
  • When at least one TC Group is created, the Mix Weight and cache control-related properties are moved from Test Cases to TC Groups because all test cases in a TC Group are executed with the same frequency and must have the same cache control settings.

Please help me with the below situation:
- Where we can find the mix weight option fro the TC in stresstimulus as I could not find as per the documentation though it is available for TC Group. Below is the screenshot for reference:



- If it is available then how can we set it based on the no. of users like TC1 to be executed with 30 users, TC2 to be executed with 40 users and TC3 to be executed with 50 users.
Thanks

Load agent technical requirements

here is no definite answer how many VUs a machine can handle. Besides your machine configuration, it depends on many factors such as your test think time, number of requests, and even web server response time.

The best recommendation is a trial and error approach. Try starting with 50-75 VU per machine and increase by 25. Pay attention to the health monitor as described http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc49/Monitoring+the+Test

If it turns yellow or red your computer is getting overloaded.

Also, starting with version 5.0 that supports cloud testing, you can create multiple AWS-based load generators from StresStimulus with a few mouse clicks as described http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Creating+AWS+EC2+agents

Due to the limitation of number of workstations, we currently mimic 125 VUs per PC. What is your suggestion or tech limit about VUs per load agent?

Here is our machine (VM) config:

CPU – Xeon E5-2640 v4, 2 Virutal CPUs

You need to use Host Remapping feature that allows to re-target the host, which was used to record a test case, to a host which should be load tested http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Host+and+Port+Remapping

We already have the script created and stabilized for say environment A.com and we got another environment with the same data as B.com(replica of env. A) then how to remap it with the existing script so that we don’t need to create a separate script each time when there is just a change in the URL name and there is no change from the server/application side.
