    Using SilkTest as performance testing tool

    Hi all,

    I'm currently setting up SilkTest scripts to record performance of the screen transitions on our application.

    I'm using the Timer functions and checking that the screens have loaded correctly and that certain objects exist/active/enabled etc before stopping my timer.

    I'm doing this to cut down on the manual work that we currently do. I'm also using SilkPerformer to create a load on the system.

    But in terms of SilkTest has anyone had any unsuccessful experiences or problems that they have faced which I need to be aware of regarding capturing screen timings? Could SilkTest cause performance issues in the application?

    Thanks in advance.

    The time it takes for a browser to render objects while SilkTest is driving it is slower than when it does it alone. The difference is only slight per page, but if your transaction includes several page loads, this difference can add up and your results will appear to be slower that 'real life'.
