If you used the correct credentials then the issue can be that you're connected to your web wire company proxy that requires authentication with Windows credentials. Upgrade to v4.7 that has the proxy authentication option enabled automatically.

If you do not wish to upgrade, then use the Fiddler add-on version.
Before recording your test case, in the Fiddler main menu go to Rules > Automatically Authenticate.





After that you should be able to pass authentication during test recording from the first attempt.

During recording I am unable to pass the following step after I put my credentials.

Record many test cases but with single login

One way of accomplishing a single login followed by multiple user actions is to record a test case consisting of a login followed by some other actions. After that, you can create a loop (http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc45/Loops) or conditional loop (http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc45/Do...While) to execute actions the other actions multiple times without logoff.

You can also record several test cases and then combine them in test groups for sequential execution in any order, as described here http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc45/Sequential+Test+Case+Groups
One of these test cases can be login, which you want to run in the beginning.

I would like to know if it’s possible to perform a test where a user logs in to an application (with a Login form) and then executes many tests once the user is logged in.

All the Dynamic values are getting added but Username is properly recorded . in the same step if password field also there but it is hashed. when i run the step it fails in the same step. which step do i need to provide password actual value post that it is converted as hash code for every login.

one step ahead to finish one script?

If I understand correctly, during login into your web application, the browser submits a hash of the password. If this is the case then StresStimulus will record the hash of the recorded password and it should work during test playback.


If you wish to parameterize the username/password credentials to emulate multiple different logins, then you can create a dataset (http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc47/Creating+Datasets) with username and password fields and in the password field insert the password hash instead of the password.


Also, if you know the hashing algorithm that is used, you can create a scriptable variable as described http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc47/Scriptable+Variables

I have recorded a simple login screen and open a home page using valid credentials.
Sessions ID's all are captured by Password was unable to capture which is hashed after submit.

Any help on this?

Topic: How to interpret graphs
StresStimulus creates performance metrics for requests, pages and transactions. You are correct that in your case, performance metrics for pages is not relevant. You should disable it. To do so, when you record a test case, uncheck the box “group requests into pages”, as shown on step 3 here
If you already recorded with the page breakdown and do not wish re-record, delete pages in the test case tree. This will remove irrelevant metrics on your reports.


Regarding graph metrics, below is an example how to read response time on KPI graph - the green line. Because Range = 10, the 93% value on the graph represents 9.3 seconds. This is your maximum response time of a single request. To determine which requests cause the slowness, you have to look at the test result -> detail view -> request details, as described here Since the graphs are interactive, you can also zoom in in the graph for more detailed analysis of the problem areas.





StresStimulus also can monitor your server infrastructure and report metrics of Windows performance counters as described here You can select meaningful metrics out of hundreds available Windows performance counters. You would be able than correlate slow response time with extreme value of a specific metrics of a Web server, ASP.NET or SQL Server.

I am unclear how to read the graphical results. Our product is a single page application. Therefore, the slowest pages don’t carry the same meaning like in the server aspx architecture. Here is one of the examples.








The average statistics / text are clearke to gain a solid understanding of the charts to be able to explain in meetings and more importantly improve the response times / weak areas of our product.

Thanks for your update.

In v4.7 the recorder has an event log and proxy troubleshooter that detects misconfigurations and displays a message with troubleshooting steps that help to resolve situations like yours.

Thanks for the feedback.
Just to confirm that I appear to have resolved the problem.
What I noticed was that the Test Recording worked no problem if I did it immediately after installation.
From this I wondered if the permissions for the first execution were inherited from the installation process.
So I closed the program and re-executed it using the Microsoft "Run As Administrator" feature.
Now the program appears to work okay.
Thanks for the prompt response.

This looks like a system proxy issue on your VM. StresStimulus automatically changes system proxy settings so it can capture web traffic.

Troubleshooting steps are described here http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc47/Configuring+Proxy

Check the security settings on the VM to make sure you have permission to set the system proxy settings.

What version of StresStimulus are you using?

-Cheers

I have tested StresStimulus locally and it works okay. I can record and replay test cases no problem.

Now I have installed StresStimulus on a VM so that I can load test a server array. The software installs okay.

When I try to record a test case the recorder panel is visible, but there are no steps being recorded and/or visible in the StresStimulus program.

Why would this be happening?

Sure. The procedure of offline activation is described here http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc46/Activating+License in the Offline Activation section.

In the licensing dialog, click the Advanced tab, then click Request Offline Activation.





After that, in the appeared form check the box that you agree to bind your trial license to this machine, click save to save the request text file. It contains your server hardware fingerprints that are necessary to generate your offline license. Finally, send the license request file to support@stresstimulus.com for processing.

The server that I’ve installed StresStimulus on doesn’t have access to the internet so I’m unable to activate it.

Can you please assist with an Offline Activation?

Reading parameters from a script

Yes you can. Click on the Script Editor to see the XML script. Parameters are stored in the Parameters collection that is documented here http://support.stresstimulus.com/display/doc42/Collection+Parameters

Scripting is an advanced feature but it can increase productivity in creating multiple scripts in some situations. For example, if you need to create many similar parameters in different test cases, you can copy and paste parameter definitions and then manually changed some attributes (e.g. ParameterNumber)
