Web App Stress Tool Page Hits
Does anyone know how to set the MS Web App Stress tool to test hitting a page or a sequence of pages once?
Currently I can only set it to run for a certain time period not specify the number of hits. How do you do a specific number of page hits?
Re: Web App Stress Tool Page Hits
you dont. what u do is work out the # of hits u want in say 60 mins, and taking the average response time of 1 user, calculate the # of requests per second. from this you can either put this straight into the tool using delays in the script, or calculate the # of concurrent users and design the test for this using threads.
when u have done this, run the test, check the results for total # of hits. it will be slightly less than u expect due to latency at the server and network (this is after all what u are trying to test). tune the script iteratively.
I can provide an example if necessary..
