IP Aliasing with Rational Performance Studio
Has anyone ever tried to use the IP Aliasing with Rational Performance Studio?? We are trying to send 100 virtual users from one server and want to setup a data pool with different IP addresses for every 20 users. Anyone have such experience?
Re: IP Aliasing with Rational Performance Studio
First of all it is not possible to create a datapool with IP addresses for IP aliasing.
What you have to do is define multiple IP addresses on your agent server, check the IP aliasing option and the system takes care of using different IP addresses for every virtual user.
Now if you want every 20 users in a 100 user run use the same IP, I suggest you create 5 different IP addresses on your agent server. Once you run your test the system will use all the 5 addresses over the 100 users (so 20 per IP address).
For the setup Pls. check your documentation on aliasing. Or check this Microsoft article
Q149426 ( http://support.microsoft.com/support..._SRCH&SPR=CHS)
which talks about adding multiple IP addresses to your NT server.
We have tow agent servers with 500 ip addresses each and it works like a charm.
Hope this helps,
