Error in Creating a Report in LoadUI with test name does not contain special character

Having the same issue as 

But the test name has no special characters and only empty spaces. Version 3.3.0. 

Also when opening the loadUI then click on one test name, cannot switch to another test. If trying to click another test name does not work.


There weren't too many error and only 1 failure (see screenshot bottom right) for the whole test. Not sure how to run from command line and how helpful it is as need to monitor the error with response. Also as you can see from the screenshot the test name is very brief and simple without any special characters.

The issue keeps happening even if restarting the machine every time before the test run and kind of annoying and wasting time.


Also once you close the loadUI, you cannot retrieve the previous report and no history report view, anyway to find the reports that cannot be opened in loadUI and open the report file in other tools such as pdf reader and excel?

Hi @totester,

In my practice, such errors usually occurred because of an insufficient amount of resources on the machine where the load test had been run, so the usage of a more powerful machine may help. There cannot be strict recommendations about how many resources are required for your specific load test because a lot of factors come into play here: a number of simulated virtual users, complexity of your SoapUI and LoadUI tests, using files from the hard drive, and so on. In most cases, the right configuration of the machine can be defined only empirically: the simplest check you can do is to try reducing the duration of the test and/or the number of simulated virtual users and checking whether the reports are generated successfully in this case. If the issue does not persist, it may mean that your tests require more resources than the current configuration can provide.

As a workaround, we usually suggest generating reports on the Statistics page. On this page, you can add the required statistics as a graph or as a table, and then create a printable report or export data in the CSV format.

If this information does not help you to resolve the issue, please submit a new case here and provide the project file containing the actual configuration of your load test and agents if any so that we could investigate the issue in our lab.
