Re: Loadrunner 12.55 Recording

In most cases, you select the protocol according to the comunication type between the client and the server and not according to the programming langauge you develop your application (exceptions are COM, .Net and GUI protocols).

got the information that COM and .Net protocol is used in my application.

but while selecting multiple protocol i can see only COM/DCOM and i am not abole to see .Net protocol so please suggest how to select COM and .Net protocol for recording.

Re: Loadrunner 12.55 Recording

Hi

As mentioned above, the exception for combining protocols are COM/DCOM and .NET so they can't be combined for recording.

This is an "either / or" situation. I suggest to fine tune your need and choose the appropriate protocol for you performance test.

Good Luck,

Re: Loadrunner 12.55 Recording

Hi,

tried to record with .Net and COM/Dcom protocol seperatly since both are not available in multiple protocol selection but was anavailable to get any events during recording with these two protocols.

please suggest how to proceed this PoC is very important for us.

thanks

Re: Loadrunner 12.55 Recording

Hi

Next suggestion would be to either use one of the GUI protocols, or Citrix / RDP if this is a VDI machine,

Good Luck,

Re: Loadrunner 12.55 Recording

Hi

GUI and COM/DCOM are not part of the community edition, so this may not help you in running performance.

how are you trying to use .NET? did you follow the documentation on recording in .NET?

Thanks,

Re: Loadrunner 12.55 Recording

Hi

well, for one - did you install the supported visual studio version on the Vugen machine?

second, what happens when you start recording? did you configure all the recording options? pointing to the executable of the application? adding the shared dll's of the application to the Run time settings? creating the needed filters for recording?

is this a WCF application? if it is - see here for more info.

In short, ,NET recording is not trivial and requires a lot of tweaking before it can work properly.

Another option to consider is not to record the application, but the transport layer - what is the protocol the application communicates with the server? you can try recording with wireshark or Fiddler and see what the actual communication looks like. if it is web / web service, you can record the communication directly and skip the application setup.

Good Luck,

Lior

Re: Loadrunner 12.55 Recording

Hi

Than follow the instructions / questions provided in previous post.

install Visual studio on Vugen, start recording and debug from then on.

This is not a "plug and play" protocol like web, there's alot of work involved here in debuggin and proper defenition of recording filters.

read the documentation completely and try from there.

Good Luck,

Lior
