IP Spoofing not working for Performance Center 11


We have a new installation of Performance Center 11.0 and have the installation such that our LoadGenerator and Controller are on the same machine.

Issue: Whenever we enable IP Spoofing and execute a Web protocol script, we get the error message which states that either execute the script with thread as an option or modify something (unable to recall the full message).

We have 5 static and dedicated IPs available to us for ip spoofing.

Moreoever we tried using web_set_sockets_option("USER_IP_ADDRESS", "{PARAM_IP_ADDRESS}");
and it worked fine.

The problem is we need to add a code to the script every time we need ip spoofing which otherwise is a facility provided for ease.

Can anyone please suggest a possible solution for the problem mentioned above.

Appreciate your responses and time in advance.

Re: IP Spoofing not working for Performance Center 11

when u r using web_set_sockets_option...r u assigning a particular ip to a particular credential manually??? as per ur code it seems u r feeding the ip address manually to the user credentials (taking the ip directly from the parameters)....so what I am thinking is that problem with ur loadbalancer (did u ever tried to check out how ur loadbalancer works???)....and it is ip based and rest of the explanation u'll get after finding if the LB is ip based, enjoy 😉
