I created a load test and was finally able to run it. It is simply a user logging in to the web site via https and then log out. The web application adds a record to the database each time a user logs in.

After I ran the load test, I reviewed the database table, I did not see any records in the database for the users that I used. The load test did not indicate any errors. I am puzzled. Please help!

Hi Maria,
I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with this.

It sounds like your VUs are not getting the job done. Here's what happens when you run a Load test:
Your virtual guys go through a list of HTTP requests sending each on to the server. They do that even if the server is down. Occasionally they might hit TCP/IP errors. This doesn't stop them but Test Studio notices that.

When a VU hits an TCP/IP error it's listed as a Faulted User - a user that couldn't complete his task. Faulted Users is a parameter you can monitor along with Created users, response time etc.
http://www.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools/support/documentation/user-guide/load-testing.aspx

So rerun your test and follow the number of Faulted Users closely. If you have the same number of Faulted users and Created users - we would know something is up and the users are not getting the job done. From there it's a question on troubleshooting where the workflow is breaking down.

The Dynamic targets might be the first thing you should check if a problem is present:

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the prompt response. Once I unchecked all the dynamic target checkboxes, the login portion of the script appeared to be working and the Faulted Virtual Users return 0.
