Can we RUN/execute a performance type test present in the performance center from the commandline?
Is there a way we can execute/RUN the performance test by a VBA script developed using OTA API or any other API?
In cases such as Maintenance's or addition of New load generators/controllers; we are currently verifying the problems by executing a test over these LG's and Controllers through performance center.
What I want to achieve is the following:
Develope a code ( kind of SRT, nightly batch job ) which will trigger a test in the performance center accepting the list of LG's and Controller as a dynamic input from some text file.
After the nightly test was run a status report ( SUCCESS / FAILURE ) should be sent to a distribution list.
In case of failure, the following report should be sent:
i. Name of the LG where the test failed.
ii. Why did it fail ( error message of the failure should be captured).
ex: "LoadRunner Agent Service" might be down.
"Remote Management Agent Service" might be down.
Load Generator or controller might bt offline from the network and not accessable.
I am very intersted to know how this can be achevied.
Not to mention; I tried recording the steps with QTP but again stopped working on it since I cant capture the above mentioned data in case of any failures.
Please provide your valuable thoughts on this.
