How to simulate the NightWatchman request
We got an application,NightWatchman product of 1E, for the porformance testing. This tool will run as a syttem service and collect some info on the system and will send to a webserver & the data'll store into the Database server (MS SQL Server). I've captured the network data using Netmon and observed its sending a HTTP request.
I tried to create a script using LoadRunner (9.10 & 8.1) with different protocols like HTTP.HTML, Winsock, MS SQL Server, ODBC but no luck.
Did any one work on this tool?
All the tips & Sugggestions are wel come.
Re: How to simulate the NightWatchman request
If you feel** you must use LR, you would:
1) Manually put the http requests into a a LR script if you actually need to simulate NightWatchman, or
2) Do one leg of the transaction only by capturing the traffic from the Webserver to the DB server and put those requests into LR if LR supports that particular protocol AND/OR you create a custom template to support such activity.
** Why not run several instances of NightWatchman instead of using LR and/or increase the service rate periodic?
