RE: Silk Performer : How can perform Stress & Load Testing of REST & SOAP web services using silk performer?

Hi,

If there is a client to interact with the WebService then it may be possible to record the actions of this client at protocol level to record the underlying requests and responses.

If there is no client then you can load the service in a 3rd party product such as "SoapUI" and record this using the Silk Performer recorder.

For both of these options you will need to add an application profile for the client that you want to record.

Adding Recording Profiles.

It is also possible to manually script a solution using the WebPagePost() function in a Silk Performer script to send SOAP requests.

This approach is discussed here: https://sourceforge.net/p/signsoaprequest/wiki/SilkPerformer_usage/

Regards,

Neil

Hi,

I see two other options here :

 

* Silk Performer SOA which is specifically targeted at testing remote services and APIs, such as web services or remote Java and .NET components.

 

* Create your Silk Performer test script from Visual Studio. This will allow you to leverage Visual Studio features, such as embedding web service calls.

See following video for a full demo. Starting at 2 min 35 sec, it shows the web service stuff :
