    What is the cause of Silk test making IE and NT crash so often???

    It seems like as soon as you think everything looks like it is working you always get Dr. Watson or IE crashes. Especially if run a script more than an hour??? Is there a way to prevent BLOD's and make it more stable?

    We have similar issues. When we see some slowness with Silk, we usually reboot the machine. It is a real pain in the neck. But we have no other way. Also, we couldn't find a pattern for this problem. Most of our PCs are NT workstation 4.0, IE 4.0 and 128 MB RAM.

    Segue suggested us to turn off any virus scanning stuff running in the background. But that didn't help us.

    There are KNOWN memory leak issues with SilkTest 5.0.2 which SEGUE is in fact working on for my project RIGHT now. The memory leaks I see come into play after 5 MINUTES (and leaves Silk inoperable.) Silk 5.0.2 has MAJOR problems introduced since 5.0 which Segue has fixed, specifically for us, but the memory leak is taking them some time.

    Without knowing much about your target test configuration, I'd have to guess that you are running into memory issues. Attempting to execute Silk automation with NS or IE browsers for hours at a time is a recipe for the kind of failures you are experiencing.

    Our Win95/98 target test systems have a minimum of 128 MB of RAM installed. Anything less and you're sure to crash while testing with browsers.

    We also have found that closing down the browser and then relaunching it in the course of extended duration testing will alleviate those pesky browser crashes.

    In our case, we aren't testing the browser, or for that matter even the content of a web site, so regularly closing and reopening browsers is not an issue for us.

    Your mileage may vary...
