Using IP address multiplexing with browser driven loadtesting projects

Using IP address multiplexing with browser driven loadtesting projects

SilkPerformers' IP Address Multiplexing feature is currently not available for use with Browser Driven Loadtesting projects.  An enhancement request has been created to consider implementation of this feature in a future version of SilkPerformer.


Some content on Community Tips & Information pages is not officially supported by Micro Focus. Please refer to our Terms of Use for more detail.

This is quite dated, Silk Performer documentation now states:  

IP Spoofing

For successful replay of such a script with parallel virtual users, each user must

use a unique IP address.

Check the option Client IP address multiplexing in Silk Performer's Active

Profile/Internet/Network tab page, and configure enough IP addresses on Silk

Performer agents so that each virtual user can have a unique IP address ("IP

Spoofing"). IP addresses can be configured using the IP Address Manager in the

System Configuration Manager that ships with Silk Performer.

As I read the foregoing, Silk Performer 9.5 can now accomplish ip spoofing?

The question I have, coming from the QALoad realm or domain, is whether or not the ip addresses one wants to spoof need to be bound to the network card as they did in QALoad?

This article refers to BDLT testing where ip spoofing is not supported.  The documentation you refer to is for protocol level testing. It is correct that the ip addresses must be bound to the network card which is done using the System Configuration Manager for ease of implementation.
