How can I ensure that each virtual user in my loadtest is assigned a unique IP address?

How can I ensure that each virtual user in my loadtest is assigned a unique IP address?

To assign individual IP addresses to virtual users, you first have to set up multiple IP addresses for the network device. This is done with the Silk Performer System Configuration Manager, which can be accessed from the Silk Performer Workbench under TOOLS | SYSTEM CONFIGURATION MANAGER.

More details on doing this are available in the "Client IP Address Simulation" section of the Silk Performer Help - SILK PERFORMER | HELP | CONTENTS.

Silk Performer can automatically assign these address to virtual users (on a round-robin basis), however it is possible to assign particular address to individual users via the WebSetLocalAddress function.

NOTE: Before running this script a file IPAddress.csv must be in the Data folder as defined in:


and it must be added to the project. This can be done via:

PROJECT pane | DATA FILES context menu (right-click) - Add Data Files
