Performance tester can be used with HTTP or web application but what i actually wanted to know about is,
can it be used with client/server architecture?
what are the prerequisites to be consider while going for that testing?
Please respond if anyone have an idea about it
RPT supports more than just http/https..it can support other protocols such as SAP, citrix meta frame and ERP such as Peoplesoft.
TO answer your question, RPT can be used on client server systems but you will need to record the applications protocols individually as its not possible to combine dual protocols during the recording process as it is done in loadrunner.
After the recording and script enhancement, its however possible to do performance testing with a combined protocol.
