In this blog post, we will show you how you can replay load test scripts that make use of the HTTP/2 protocol. Before we jump over to Silk Performer and show you the details, let's first discuss what HTTP/2 actually is. Revision 2 of the hypertext transfer protocol has been released in 2015, 16 years after HTTP/1.1. It is a major advancement compared to HTTP/1.1 - in essence, it provides for a considerably faster communication between client and server.
The trend to more frequent and shorter release cycles in the software industry also results in tighter time frames for all your testing efforts. One way to save time and make use of synergies is to reuse your existing functional tests for load testing.
In this blog post, we'll show you how you can do just that, by using Silk Performer 18.0 and Silk Test 18.0. We will demonstrate how to export a Silk Test keyword-driven test to Silk Performer and how to execute it as a load test.
In this blog article, we're going to introduce you to HTTP Live Streaming, or HLS for short. You will learn how HLS works, and we will explore how to actually record media streams in Silk Performer 17.0. HLS is an HTTP-based media streaming communications protocol, which has been adopted for video delivery across the industry all around the world. Silk Performer automatically detects HLS traffic during recording and simulates a video player consuming HLS data during playback.
