How can I determine the size of a downloaded document during a load test?

How can I determine the size of a downloaded document during a load test?

By using the WebParseResponseHeader function, with the "Content-Length" parameter, you will be able to return the size of a file downloaded during a load test.

The syntax should be as below, where sHeader represents the source URL of the document:

WebParseResponseHeader(sHeader, STRING_COMPLETE, "Content-Length");

A worked example follows:

  transaction THeader

  var

    sHeader : string;

  begin

    //capture the specific content-length data
    WebParseResponseHeader(sHeader, STRING_COMPLETE, "Content-Length");

    //our target url, here a pdf file
    WebUrl("http://www.borland.com/resources/en/pdf/company/news/press_releases/q1_2007_earnings.pdf", 0.0);
    
    //print content-length data to Output file 
    write("PDF document size:" + sHeader);

  end THeader;
