We would like to determine if your tool requires any components installed on any servers, or if rather it queries them directly to get KPI & counter data off servers.
Typically, we cannot install components onto servers in data centers.

Max number of users on machine

There are many factors that determine how many VUs a local machine can support. Some factors are machine dependent, such as CPU and memory. Other factors are test related, such as think time and requests/s.
The best way to determine the answer to your question is to do trial and error. Run a test with a few hundred VUs and keep an eye on the health monitor as described http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Monitoring+the+Test
If the test runs fine then you can increase the number of VUs and run another test, or decrease the number of VUs if your machine is overloaded.

Topic: Can free version expire?
StresStimulus Free Edition never expires and does not require activation. To switch to Free Edition which has a limited feature set for simple load tests with up to 250 VUs, go to Main Menu-> Help->Free Edition.







FYI: After downloading StresStimulus, it works as an unregistered trial version of the Enterprise edition limited to 3 VU. This trial version will eventually expire. To continue using it you can request a trial extension or purchase a license.

Issue with adding a load agent

It’s most likely due to a firewall that’s blocking the controller from connecting to the agent.

Try opening Windows Firewall on the agent TCP listening port (default 49998) or disabling Windows Firewall all together and try connecting again.

I have a machine that I’m trying to add as a load agent, but it is failing for no apparent reason. I have another machine almost identical to it which is added and used with no issues.

Specifications for VM capacity

We only have general VM recommendations as hardware utilization can be impacted by the number and complexity of test cases.

Regular VM with 8GB of RAM and 4-core x2.8 GHz CPUs can handle between 500 and 1000 VUs when used for test cases of medium complexity.

Your team should be able to more accurately determine the VM capacity requirements for your test cases during the POC. Once we configure 1 or 2 test cases that are typical to your application, we can run a test that ramp-up users until the CPU utilization reach 80-90%. Then we can determine how many VUs can emulate one VM and then determine the number of VMs you may need.

There seems to be a configuration issue on your machine. Please try to install StresStimulus and Fiddler in another environment. Also you can try using standalone version of StresStimulus instead of Fiddler addon.

If the issue persists then please contact your StresStimulus support rep for further support options.

It looks like you might be using Fiddler v2 which does not support Tls 1.1 and 1.2.

Install Fiddler v4 or higher then try adding tls1.1 and 1.2 to the supported HTTPS protocols.

After you do that go Options > HTTPS tab > Click Actions > Reset Certificates (shown below)


Then restart Fiddler.

Hello George,

Thanks for the reply.

It looks like you have a problem with certificate.

Refer to solution described https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16195469/chrome-doesnt-trust-fiddler-root-certificate

  • Click Tools > Fiddler Options.
  • Click the HTTPS tab.
  • Ensure that the text says Certificates generated by CertEnroll engine.
  • Click Actions > Reset Certificates. This may take a minute.
  • Accept all prompts

In your screenshot your certificates are created by MakeCert, which is not supported by Chrome. Change it to CertEnroll (see the red square outline below).



Also, you might want to consider changing the supported protocols (see the green square outline) as described https://amoghnatu.net/2017/12/04/enable-tls1-1-and-tls-1-2-in-fiddler/

Tests stored online or locally?

StresStimulus saves tests locally and not online. By default, the SQL Server CE test files (.sdf) are stored in the test folder


%Documents%\Fiddler2\StresStimulus\{test name}

or in

%User%\AppData\Local\StresStimulus\SQLCE\{test name} .

The default SQL Server CE folder can be changed as described http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc49/Test+Result+Storage
