I am new to QA Load. Please guide me where I am doing wrong.
I am recording an application which generates reports based the criteria made on frontend. These are Microstrategy reports.
1. When trying to validate the script after recording, I am getting bunch of compilation errors as follows:
C:\PROGRA~1\COMPUW~1\QALoad\MIDDLE~1\WWW\Scripts\& lt;name of report>.CPP(398) : error C2022: '126442' : too big for character
2. But when I converted the .cap file to .c and validated, it is fine and also I am able to play with multiple VUsers.
Why is this happening and whats the resolution? Try to use always the .c file????
I'm going to focus on only one of your followup questions.
When you are using conductor, it is the *.dll file that you will be selecting, not *.c or any of the Visual Navigator source files. When you successfully compile the *.c script an associated *.dll file is created. That is the one that conductor uses.
I think the rest of your questions can best be answered yourself by **carefully** reading the help file (you can get the associated pdf file from the Compuware Frontline web site) and looking at the conductor screens. These things are hard for me to describe. I think you should just experiment as much as possible.
It helps if you have a hands-on mentor. My mentor learned it all the hard way :-) I got lucky, I was able to have hands-on help from my mentor. I also took the introductory QA Load course from Compuware.
Another tip would be for you to have made a fresh posting of the questions which really were a seperate topic so that others could more effectively respond.
Thanks for the reply.
I am using QA Load 5.2 and WWW Middleware. I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0.
So, it is better to turn off the Visual navigator and use the .c script in conductor.
Also, can you please let me know regarding session duration. I couldn't find much help for these.
Session Duration, Enabling test recording
Transactions, Service level Threshold, Pacing,
Timing Options, Data Thinning
Max threads, Max Processes, Performance data ( enable performance data for this player? "Checked"-- We really need to gather performance data so, why is this again?)
Can we select either .c file or .vistree file?
What does Time Intervel mean?
What if starting Vusers is not same as Ending Vusers?
How is session duration and time interval go by?
What is the different in Thread/Process?
