[LoadUIWeb] Simulate File Transfer


I have a problem with WebLoadUI Pro. I'm trying to load test a website, but in the normal workflow a file has to be uplaoded. But when I go to playback a recording the file transfer itself doesn't seem to be happening. 

Is this normal? I need this to be simulated during these tests to see if bandwith is impacted with multiple users. Is there a way to simulate this? 

I tried with Jmeter and this seems to work fine. Would this be a limitation of LoadUIWeb Pro?

  • It works for me with LoadUIWeb 2.90. Are we talking about a standard HTML <input type="file"... element within a <form enctype="multipart/form-data"...? Or is it some custom client/server upload component? Also, what size file are you posting?

    The confirmation of this functionality is from my IIS log file, where 5890141 is the number of posted/received bytes on the server-side...

  • Hi SmartBear Team,

    I am also having a problem with uploading a file in my load testing. We are running LoadUIWeb Pro v2.95 on Window 8 and recorded browser is IE10. The file is uploaded during the Verify Scenario. But when I ran with 50VU, the document is not uploaded to any of the 50VU. It is a PDF of 572kb and every VU is uploading the same document from the same location C: drive. I saw in your reply you are asking some technical question, so I have attached the screen shot of the Scenario. Hope this help.
  • Sorry, the Verify Scenario does not upload the document. The document is uploaded during Recording Scenario. Here is the Text format:
