I would like to capture the traffic of a web service host in order to create a web-service load test.
The host is running on CentOS5.3, and use the tcpdump tool to create the capture file:
/usr/sbin/tcpdump -s 0 -e -w dumpfile.cap
I create a new WebServices test script in Loadrunner VuGen 9.51:
Opening the dump file with VuGen's Analyse Traffic function fails, and I receive the following error messages:
"Could not open file"
"16-bit application recording is not supported"
The error message is a bit strange, considering that it should work from a network capture file...
I checked the dump file with /usr/sbin/tcpdump -r dumpfile.cap -X , and it contains the captured traffic.
Have you got experience with webservice traffic capturing?
Any proposal is welcome : - )
PS: retested with VuGen 9.52. The same issue is experienced.
