Dynamic variables set up for the LoadView test

Some LoadView test may require you to provide some variable data that will be used in the tasks of your device. For example we want to simulate different users logging in or visitors searching for different products. To achieve this you need to set up and provide a list of values that will be used during the LoadView test.   Setting up context parameter for http/https test   Open the task for editing, scroll down to the Additional Parameters section and open it up. For the Get, Post Parameters or Headers in the action button select New Context Value. Confirm Read more

LoadView: Test Execution Profiles

There are three LoadView test profiles: Normal User Simulation Maximum Speed Simulation (For Stress Testing) User Session Simulation   Normal User slows down page interaction and adds random delays between actions of 3 to 6 seconds. Maximum Speed  Runs the test scripts as fast as possible, essentially attempting to stress the server to maximum capacity User Session  Simulates a slower user interacting with the website with the slowest page interactions and random delays between actions of 6 to 10 seconds.

LoadView Setup (Stress testing and Load Testing)

LoadView emulates users on your website or server by performing specified actions on your website (device) like browsing, searching, adding products to their shopping cart etc. or generating certain types of requests to your device. Knowing how much your device can handle helps planning further software or hardware updates and get ready to real traffic. You can define the number of users that will be performing these actions, the duration of the LoadView test and set up a fully custom scenario with the rate of arrival/departures of those virtual users. While the test is running you can monitor the basic Read more

LoadView Platform

LoadView is a web-load stress test tool that helps predict how a website will respond to various traffic levels. LoadView can answer questions, such as: How will the number of website users affect website performance? How many simultaneous users can my website handle? Where are the bottlenecks in my web application? What’s the breaking point for my website, or when will I run out of resources? Dotcom-Monitor provides external on-demand, self-administered website load test services, implemented and executed within minutes using an online control panel. The service does not require an investment in any hardware, or software infrastructure. Website traffic, or loads, are Read more


Time Stress Test

Time Stress Test The Time stress test option is a flexible way to create testing scenarios and approximate environments that are closer to real-life loads. The Time stress test option allows for sequential steps within a load test. Each step can specify a unique virtual user load, the number of minutes to run under such load, and the minimum and maximum time-delays between hits by virtual users. Time option stress test Shopping Cart example Consider a scenario where stress testing is being set up to occur on a website with a seven-step shopping cart. It is known that visitors to Read more

Cycle Test

Cycles The Cycle stress test is the simplest website stress test option. Cycles stress testing allows you to specify: a. the number of virtual users going to a website and b. the number of times that each virtual user will go through an online transaction. Cycle option stress test Shopping cart Scenario In this example, there is a need to stress test a shopping-cart transaction that has seven-steps. You can set up a Cycle stress test to have 200 simultaneous virtual users where each virtual user completes the seven-step shopping cart transaction 100 times.The repetition of the shopping cart transaction Read more
