Performance of printers
what are conditions to check the performance of printers?
There is Application that print the papers using normal printer and it should print the paper within 5 sec. so i need to check the performance using Loadrunner tool
Re: Performance of printers
You will need a different test mechanism, for there is no effective mechanism to stop a timing record when the first page of a print job ejects from the printer. Furthermore, you may have a substantially queued set of print jobs, such that something you print now may not print for 30 minutes. Is this then a pass or fail? Are timing from when the page definition hits the printer and five seconds from then or from when someone hits print in their application. Or, is it sufficient to measure the difference between when someone hits print and when it shows up in the queue? What if your printer takes 15 seconds to awake from idle, but then after that spits out 60 pages per minute, is this acceptable?
Plus, LoadRunner does not support file and print protocols directly, so you would need to build something custom.
Just hook your laptop up to the printer directly. Allow the printer to get to a defined initial state (idle, warmed up, ....) then copy a print job consisting of a single page to the printer port (Copy <print job name> lpt1. Time the window between hitting enter to submit the job and when the page is ejected.
