Virtual Users in SilkPerformer
does anybody know how virtual user simulate browser request? does each virtual user use seperate port to send/receive request?
We are doing a load balancing test and would like to have more background information, so we try out diff balancing algorithm on the load balancer with diff silkperformer settings
Re: Virtual Users in SilkPerformer
Silkperformer vusers send/receieve requests/responses on ports specifically assigned to the vuser. You can also simulate these virtual users coming from different IP addresses if that is a configuration you want to test with the load balancer. I don't recommend basing load balancing on source IP though. Proxy servers can cause headaches and such for load balancers using source IP.
