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.

Topic: Recording with credentials
The feature you are trying to use is only necessary when your web application uses Channel Binding Tokens as described http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Other+Recording+Options which is typically rare.

Typically in load testing, you would record with one set of credentials. Then, when running the test, you can provide multiple credentials for every VU.

Please see this video how run a test with multiple credentials for server authentication https://www.stresstimulus.com/videos/test-with-multiple-logins-server-authentication and this video about multiple logins for forms authentication https://www.stresstimulus.com/videos/test-with-multiple-logins-form-authentication

I am using a trial version of stress stimulus for recording a web application hosted on another internal server within the organization. While I am supplying credentials in Test Wizard -> Recording Source -> Other options -> Recording Credentials , it is still recording with my base machine credentials.
Can you tell me if trial version supports this credentials feature ?
If yes , what else could be the problem?

Topic: Silent install
StresStimulus silent installer should install all default settings including desktop and start menu shortcuts. If you do not see these shortcuts then your remote installer may be missing permissions to create shortcuts. You can check permissions or create them manually after the installation.


Based on your feedback, we released a new build of StresStimulus command line installer where we added the following switches:
  • To enable Agent mode after quiet installer use the /agent switch: StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe /q /agent
  • Help switch to display all available switches: StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe /?

The new installer can be downloaded here.


Thanks for your suggestions!

Use the following switches to run in quiet mode (silent):

StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe /q
To run the installer in quiet mode


StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe -u /q
To run the un-installer in quiet mode



Hi, thanks for that, the user's just got back to me. It installed OK but with no desktop or start menu shortcuts.Additionally the user wants the just agent installed on some PCs. Is there a list of command line switches? I tried StresStimulusInstaller_cmd.exe /? but that just started the installer.

Thanks

Javascript object identification in Grid

Carlos,

StresStimulus (as well as all other tools that work on the protocol level) does not provide full browser emulation including JS execution.

If you need to parameterize a value using custom JS calculations you can use an external variable that re-implements the calculation algorithm that is described here.

You can use the following languages: C#, VB.Net, JScript .Net

- Cheers

Javascript object identification in Grid

Folks,

I have some questions in regards to identifying an object in a grid in Dynamics, I have a request that sends the PositionalParameters based on a JS calculation of the rowheight during runtime, when I run the script it fails because its sending the parameters based on the scripting object I selected and not the newly created one which sits on the bottom of the grid list during replay.

There are no references to it in previous requests, only in the JS file that does the actual calculation.

My questions:
How do you handle these situations?
How can I enable to execute JS during test replay?
Do I have to choose an specific browser?

thanks,

Carlos

Topic: Creating modular scripts
You can try the following:
1. Record a test case (TC) consisting of transactions: Login, Operation_A, Operation_B, ... Logout.
2. Clone the TC several times http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Creating+Multiple+Test+Cases
3. In every clone, delete all transactions except one and call the clones by their name, e.g., TC_Login.
4. Save the test with the name Library. The TC in Library will be somewhat similar to modular pieces of code.
Now, when you create a new test, you can import from Library any TC containing the required transaction http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Import+Test+Cases+from+another+test
You can also export transactions from Library to your new test http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc50/Clone+Objects
This method may not always work. There are several reasons for this:
• Your application does not support the sequence of transactions you are creating.
• The reusable transactions were created with extra or missing requests.
