I would like to know how measure the downloading time of 100 multiple users from a single webpage served by a webserver. The following are my issues:
1. I already made a test script using the model script command, however, I only download the files by clicking the files' URL and saving it one at a time. Is there a way that I can just record and produce a test script wherein all the files can be downloaded using a single command? How?
2. Using the operation above, I would like to loadtest the webserver by emulating 100 users. How would I do this? I already tried adjusting the workload. I am just not sure if adjusting the workload is thr right way of emulating 100 users.
3. From issue #2, I noticed that the testing operation seemed to run infinitely, meaning, the testing doesn't stop. I noticed it by looking at the performance monitor. I would like the test to just run once. How would I do this?
I am sorry if I had a lot of issues. I only started using the silkperformer yesterday and I know I still have a lot to learn. I already saw the tutorials provided in the doc folder, but I still need additional information on how to operate the silkperformer. Any help from you would be appreciated. Thanks
Question for part#1 is there a way for a regular user to do this function (all the files can be downloaded using a single command? How?)? If this is not a function a normal user would do why script or even test for it? For Part 2 it depends on what you are trying to determine (can the system handle 100 concurrent users or can 100 different users use the system?). IN any case depending on the type of system you might want to think in transactions per hour as opposed to concurrent users (unless of course you have a contractual reason for 100 concurrent users). As for part 3 that sounds like a configuration issue (without seeing the test parameters).
