Question: I am fairly new to using Loadrunner, got training, but dont have a mentor at the moment.I hope to have one in the weeks to come.
My question is the following:
1) I have a .Net application which access SQL Server 2000 via a datatier component. Across environments, the identity of the user using the datatier, and the SQL Servers change. The information is for the connectionString is within a config file which the datatier accesses and the datatier user is used for all security purposes.
When I record via Loadrunner in one environment and use it in another environment, do i need to change anything or the internal architecture will take care of everything.
2) Is it a good idea to use Click and Script over the traditional HTTP.
3) When should one be using Multi-protocol over single.
Thanks much in advance
Re: .Net application against SQL Server 2000
Your ? numbers:
1) Minimally you would change the connection string.
2) Click 'n' Script: If it works better, then use it. However, be fully aware that the footprint on your load generator(s) is much larger than HTTP/HTML - typically. It is recommended you do some load generator usage testing.
3) Multi? When called for in siutations such as Web/OracleNCA, WebServices/HTTP-HTML. One cannot do multi-for everything. There are really only a handful of combinations for dual-protocol.
- It is recommended you upgrade to 9.1
