What is the processor and memory load for the SilkTest Agent, Runtime and Development executables?
The processor load (by which is meant the percentage of the CPU devoted to the process) will vary depending on what is being done. For example, it will probably be at 100% while gathering window children, especially if it is a complicated window/browser page.
The memory usage for Agent.exe starts at about 4 or 5 MB. Maximum usage will vary depending on the test. The memory usage for the standard Partner.exe should start at around 10 MB, and again will vary depending on the test. The figure for the Runtime Partner.exe is probably about the same as for the standard.
In addition, if using an extension, there will be a memory load for the AUT. For example, when using the DOM extension IE will use additional memory, the amount of which will vary depending on the complexity of the pages being tested.
Again, the memory usage figures are minimums -- maximums and will vary according to the amount of information being exchanged with the application being tested.
