My application architecture is mention as below in this case how can i decide to select the proper protocol. How can i know which protocol is used for recording of script. And what r the diff. parameters I can monitor during & after the running of the Vusers scripts.
It is Client-Server 3-tier application. VB as frontend & Oracle as database. Now We used the COM architecture to connect with the database, means each user has to connect with the App.Server ( i.e. COM architecture )App.Server is connect to the database server through Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle.
Re: Protocol Selection
I think you answered part of your own question. LR tests the connection between an app and it's server. In this case, that would be between the client app and the middle tier, which, I believe you mentioned, uses COM. Therefore, the protocol to use is COM.
As to the others - what can you monitor, etc. - I'd strongly suggest you check the info available to you at Mercury's web site. They have extensive product information, as well as white papers. If you actually have LoadRunner, check the Controller manual. It has all the info you need. In short: there's a *great* deal LR can monitor, and I have no idea what you're looking for!
