We have web application that we get times for around 100 screens. We manually capture the time it takes to open website and put time into and excel spreadsheet. Then capture time it takes to login. Can Load Testing Tool capture and report on these times using virtual users?
Re: Can Load Testing tool capture real client times?
Any automated functional testing tool can capture these times. Take a look at your automated functional tool for timing functions. In the HP/Mercury line of tools these will be timing 'transaction' related.
For the traditional big players, HP, Microfocus and IBM, their functional tools can also be used as Graphical Virtual Users during performance tests, allow timing information to be collected at the GUI layer under load while the majority of the user load is generated using API level users which require significantly fewer resources per virtual user and can be loaded by the tens/hundreds/thousands per host versus GUI virtual users which are traditionally bound to a single graphical user per OS instance
