context sensitive and analog functions
Am having a nightmare trying to find information about context sensitive(cs) and analog(a) functions.
What is an advantage about using web_submit_form(cs) instead of web_submit_data(a)?
(Is it to do with GET and POST?)
What determines which of the 2 above is recorded by Vugen when in HTML mode?
Which mode context sensitive or analog allows more vusers on a machine and why?
(context, as is records less information in script thus uses machines resources less?)
I have an idea for the questions but am not completly sure, any advice would be very much appreciated.
Re: context sensitive and analog functions
Well there are advantages and disadvantages to both methods. Html (context sensitive) uses more resorces on the load generating machines, because it uses data from the last page returned by the server to create the next page to send. In doing so there are less corelations you have to do and also the script is easier to follow since there is less data actually being recorded, items like image files etc are grabed on the fly. With http all of those items are recorded in the script, making it harder to follow, but allowing you to use the load generators resorces more wisely. Also since all of the data is capture, there is more data that needs to be correlated, expecially if the pages are dymanic in nature.
