Starting Silk Performer from the Command Line

Jump to solution

I've been using this as a reference, among others:

http://documentation.microfocus.com/help/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.microfocus.silkperformer.doc%2FSILKPERF-22DB5B20-STARTINGFROMCOMMANDLINE-TSK.html

If I run this, it works OK.

c:\Program Files (x86)\Silk\Silk Performer 15.5>performer C:\Repository\ClientServer\Projects\RSChoice\RSChoice.ltp /Automation 3 /WL:LoadTest48Users


If I run this:

c:\Program Files (x86)\Silk\Silk Performer 15.5>performer C:\Repository\ClientServer\Projects\RSChoice\RSChoice.ltp /Automation 3 /WL:LoadTest48Users /nogui /noexit


I get this:

I am attempting to work on some continues integration by running my tests via scheduler following a new build. I'd like the test to run in the background without intervention. Oh, BTW I've tried several combinations of the commands listed above. Only the top one seems to work.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Tony

Hi Tony,

The full list of available parameters is here:

Have you considered evaluating Silk Central Test Manager to schedule your tests?

Best Regards,

Ah, OK so there really isn't a way to run these unattended? Oh, and no cash available for Test Manager 😉

Hi Tony,

You should be able to create batch files using the command line options and then call these batch files using the Windows scheduler as long as you time the tests so that each test will finish before the next test is due to start.

Let me know if you have any problems with this.

Best Regards,

Neil
