    Hello.

    I am trying to perform a load test on a ASP.NET web application using following steps.

    1. Log in

    2. Open a popup window and enter some info and applying (POST) and closing the window

    3. log out.

    This works perfectly in a functional test, and the load test is recorded using the same functional test, using IE.  I have tried to add wait times in all steps, but that does not help. Can you please advice?  I am using Test studio V2015.3

    Hi Ragnar,

    I am a little bit lost in understanding what the technical problem is. A Test Studio load test does not launch a browser. It simply plays back the raw recorded HTTP transactions and sends them in mass to your web server. Thus it is simulating lots of browsers hitting your web server concurrently, but no browser is actually being used. You will not see any browser windows when running a Test Studio load test.

    Please describe in more detail what you were expecting to see versus what you're actually seeing. Then we can start diagnosing the cause of your symptoms.

    Hi,

    I am expecting a record to be created in a database as a result of the post from the popup window (simulates user registering hours). The login is also logged in the database and that seems to be successful.

    This test did work on a previous version of our system but for some reason that is not working now.

     

    Regards,

    Ragnar

    Hello Ragnar,

    Thank you for the additional information. I can help you with the problem of record not being created in your database as expected. To diagnose this I need the following information:

    1. A copy of the logs from the execution server as it's trying to run the load test
    2. A copy of your load test. This is a .tstest file on disk. Place it into a .zip file then attach the .zip file.
    3. A Fiddler trace of your load test trying to run. Please start and end with only 1 VU.
