    simulating load using testmanager

    i am using rational test manager to run scripts captured through robot for simultaneous virtual users. I have inserted a synchronisation point in my user group to introduce ramp up time for the virtual users. However after a test completes test manager gives a message which says
    "specified load was never achieved "
    moreover there are entries in server logs for each simulation thereby indicating that the server was indeed loaded.. for e.g for a test with x simultaneous users there are x entries in the server logs... however NO performance reports are produced by testmanager.....kindly help

    thanks in advance

    I think that you cannot get a performance report from GUI scripts. I think that performance data is only generated by VU scripts.

    oh, sorry about that. For an unknow reason, I though you said you where using GUI scripts.
    I don't know why you dont get a performance report then.

    Re: simulating load using testmanager

    What are the details of your test suite?

    Fixed users? Percentage of users per groups? What are the properties of your transactors? Using selectors? Weighted scripts?

    Re: simulating load using testmanager

    I am using 2 user groups within a suite...66% to one user group and rest to second one... no transactors and selectors used.... only sync point for ramp up...

    Re: simulating load using testmanager

    Have you been able to access the test log to see what your users are seeing? I think if you have even one user hang or not complete its scripts will cause the entire test to hang while waiting for that particular user to arrive at the synch point.

    Re: simulating load using testmanager

    That is exactly the point... My application logs show that all the VUs succeeded i.e. did what they were supposed to do without hanging. My backend also confirms the same... That is what is the most bewildering part...
    and ya thanks in advance for all your inputs Steve and 507073 ...

    Re: simulating load using testmanager

    Did you manually verify through the Virtual Tester Associated Data tab in the Test Log? I've had users "Pass" when in fact they didn't.

    Another option might be to run your test with FULL view and watch the users cycle through your scripts.

    If all you're concerned about is rampin, have you considered a user delay? Our team often does something like this:

    delay (_uid * 1000)

    User 1 delays for 1 second, 2 for 2, etc. Just an idea. It provides a stairstep approach to your full load on the system.
