    How Many Virtual Users Per Machine?

    December 18, 2013 Share
    One of the more common questions we hear from load testers is how many virtual users can be run from one load test generating computer.  For testers wanting to exercise their web application with thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of virtual users, understanding how many test generators are needed helps them appropriately plan for load testing activities. The implications of using too few load test generators can be significant.  If the processors are too slow or the machines don’t have enough memory, it could prevent the test from accurately creating and measuring load on the application.  ...

    Keeping a Browser Window Open

    December 17, 2013 Share
    Greetings, testers. There's a question I see fairly frequently in the community forums and in the support channels, and it often looks something like this: "How can I keep my browser from closing when a test is done?" What it usually boils down to is that the person asking the question is really trying to do one of two things, at different times during their testing process. Test Creation "I want to be able to execute the test, leave the browser open when it completes, and the continue recording the next steps." That's a very normal way of building tests, ...

    It’s been 2 years, 4 months, and 28 days since my last blog post – so I figured this one had better be good. Over the past several years, the team at Telerik has shipped countless new features evolving Test Studio from an automated testing tool to an end-to-end testing solution. While the focus has always been and will remain on end to end testing – we’ve decided to split our offering into two solutions – one focused on functional test automation, and one focused on load testing. For those who want it all – fear not, we will continue ...

    Dynamic Frames? No Problem.

    December 09, 2013 Share
    Many sites and web applications are using iframe elements to create tabs or sections on the page which the user can enable/disable/move at will. These often are being created in such a way that putting an ID on each frame is difficult or not feasible. As each frame is created or destroyed, of course, the index of a given frame within the frames collection changes. These factors combine, making it very difficult for an automation framework to reliably locate elements within the frames. Beginning with the R2 release, Test Studio 2013 introduces Custom Tags for Frames, a way to ...
