Fix protocol testing by loadrunner
I have a trading application and we need to do performance testing of that.
I search quite a lot on net but unable to find anything where I can script test on loadrunner.
Can please someone help me to give some pointer in this regards.
Thanks in advance
what have you tried so far?
it helps if you tell us that so we can help
I've just started on this and looking the way communication happens.
I am not sure how to do transport of messages ( over http ?) also I am looking a way if loadrunner have some recording functionality for that ( or any other protocol?) or I need to build custom request.
I was seeing FIXML and that can be one way but I am looking if people have done perfromance testing of fix-protocol and if so then how they have done.
Thanks a lot
so architecturally the transport mechanism is http - in that case LR should just be able to record the traffic
i would start with trying to record it with html protocol and probably also with fiddler (or similar) if possible

It is not over http but tcp.
I am looking on winsock protocol but not sure how to proceed on that.
with extreme difficulty - most people run from winsock protocol
I'd advise reading the manual as a good starting point
Finally We've implemented the customize solution in C# outside loadrunner ( and running it as .Net VUser).
