CPU usage increasing to 100% and winrunner not responding
While executing the automated scripts in Win Runner in batch mode for about 200 test cases, IE(application opened in IE) is going to 99% CPU usage and WinRunner status goes to Not Responding.
Test Set up configuration is as below:
OS : Windows 2000
RAM : 512 MB
IE version : 6.0, SP1
WinRunner : 7.6 with Java and Web-Test add-ins.
Re: CPU usage increasing to 100% and winrunner not responding
could be a number of issues; you might need more ram, you may have a memory leak on the aplication under test, you may have scripts not closing down correctly and so "holding" systems resources, both the tool and the application may be resource heavy and the machine may not be powerful enough to handle it, it could be an IE memory leak, you may not have enough virtual memory assigned for this task.
It might be worth investigating these areas. Have you talked these options through with your IT support desk, or tools experts in the organisation you work in?
