To join a StresStimulus support session, you would need a meeting link. It will be in an email that you received after scheduling the meeting.
To make sure that you would be able successfully to join the session, install Cisco WebEx Meetings ahead of time from here https://www.webex.com/downloads.html
To test that your WebEx is fully installed use this page https://www.webex.com/test-meeting.html

When joining the WebEx meeting, click on the meeting link. It will bring you to the meeting landing page below. Enter your name and email. Then click on the right of green arrow and select Always join from the desktop app. Then click Join Meeting.

Administrative privileges are required to install StresStimulus on the agent machine. Once installed, Administrative privileges on the controller are not required to add the agent. Furthermore, when adding the agent, you do not need to provide Administrator credentials of the agent.

If you use AWS cloud agent option then the agent provisioning with all required privileges will be performed automatically.

after we were able to add the load agents to our controller, they disappeared when we loaded a test case. Is there a setting we should check to ensure that the load agents remain connected to the controller? We have 40 test cases and we’re wanting to avoid having to manually add the load agents for every test case.

Load agents are part of the test and not the machine. Every test has its list of load agents. However, all test cases within a test can use the same agents.

It looks like in your situation the test cases are stored in the separate tests. In this approach, you would need to add agents to every test manually. Below is a technique that can simplify this process.

Alternatively, if you put all 40 test cases into 1 test, then you will only need to add agents once.

The simplified method of Copying agents from one test to another:

The agent data is stored inside a .ssconfig file in XML format. Here are the steps:

  • Add load agents to one test.




  • Open script editor
  • Navigate to the bottom and copy the entire <Agents> section to the clipboard (or to the notepad)
  • Close script editor
  • Save the test.
  • Open a second test that you wish to copy the agent information to
  • Open script editor
  • Find the <Agents> and overwrite the entire section with data from the clipboard (or notepad)
  • Click the Save & Exit button to reload the test.

    Pages can be created automatically under two conditions:
    1. You need to check the box "group requests into pages" on the recording wizard
    2. Your application should be not a "single page" application.





    If your application is heavily ajax-based, then page breakdown maybe not entirely accurate because several clicks can round-trip to the same page, and the report will show the combined response time and not an individual time of every click.
    Because of that reason, StresStimulus has a similar but more accurate mechanism called Transactions. During recording, you can create transactions that precisely represent user actions which you want to track performance - see http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Creating+Transactions
    After that, your report will show subreports for page, transactions or both.

    Manual parameterization is described here.

    To see the recorded value you can see the Session Inspector as described here.

    Installed Root Certificate Name & how remove it?

    The name of the Fiddler root certificate is DO_NOT_TRUST_FiddlerRoot.

    To uninstall Fiddler open Control Panel > Uninstall a Program > Select Fiddler


    Fiddler uninstaller does not remove the certificate, and it has to be removed manually as follows:
    Open Internet Explorer > Main menu > Tools > Internet Options > Content Tab > Certificates button > Trusted Root Certification Authorities tab > Delete the certificate mentioned above.

    The name of StresStimulus root certificate is StresStimulus Recording Root Certificate II. Its removal steps are the same as for Fiddler certificate.

    What is the name of the root certificate that StresStimulus / Fiddler installed?
    How do I ensure that StresStimulus uninstall has removed it, especially since uninstall does not seem to let me checkmark the option to uninstall Fiddler?

    Extractor value usage in other test

    This is possible in v5.0 if you create a test case group (TC Group) and each VU will run test case 1 (TC1) and test case 2 (TC2) sequentially.

    Once you create a TC Group here are the steps to pass an extractor from TC1 to TC2.
    • Create an appropriate extractor in TC1. Call it Ext1.
    • Create a dummy extractor in Session #1 in TC2 that won’t return a value. Call it Ext1 also. For example, the extractor will be text delimited, begins with ‘aaaaaaaaa’ and ends with ‘bbbbbbbbbbbb’.
    • Create the appropriate parameter using Ext1 in TC2.

    When you run the test the value of Ext1 will be passed on to a parameter in TC2.


    Hope this helps.

    Hi Team,
    Will it be possible to use an extractor which is part of test 1 in test 2.
    I have two test cases saved as two different test. In test 2 I have imported test 1 under which i have created an extractor from the response. This value is required to be pass in another request which is under test 2.
    I tried to use the parametrization format ( {{extratorname}} ) and kept the test case sequence properly. But the request having parametrization is not replacing the value from the extractor.
    Can you please help me to understand if this is feasible. Can we be able to configure such scenario?
    Regards
    Tanveer

    Topic: Chrome is not on the list
    If Chrome is installed, then there is likely an issue with installation integrity. Here’s how to troubleshoot it:
    The list of installed browsers must be in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet as described https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43633190/getting-a-list-of-installed-browsers-on-the-computer
    Check if Chrome entry is there. If it is missing, then try reinstalling Chrome.

    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.
