Real-time mode option in recording a load test

Hi,



I want to record a load test in the same way as the actual real-tme intervals between user actions. Can we use the real-time mode in the Recording option under project options for a load test ? I recorded the load test with the option "Real time mode" as checked but the total run time does not differe that much with or without the option checked.



Thanks,

Sumedha

RE: Real-time mode option in recording a load test

Real-time mode as a setting only applies to functional user tests.  Load tests in TestComplete do not interact with the UI and are simply traffic recordings of HTTP POST and GET messages to and from the web application. 



As far as I know, there's not an easy way to do that with the load testing.  However, you can come a little closer in TC 7.52 with synchronization points where you can indicate that all of your virtual users need to get to a particular request before they go on together.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

RE: Real-time mode option in recording a load test

Hey Allen,



Thanks for the suggestions. In the meantime,I am increasing the load on the server by repetitively running the load test multiple times as I won't be able to use the delay as I want to do a concurrent run for the users. Is this a feasible approach ?



Thanks,

Sumedha
