Slow UFT performance with SVN integration

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

I maintain my UFT tests via our Subversion server and use TortoiseSVN for this.

Since I do this all of my tests are running much slower than normal.

 

To give an exampe. A test wich is running 45 minutes requires now over 3 hours.

This effect not so problematic if this test with the Test Batch Runner and use the "invisible mode". But it is noticeable that the test runs slower.

This also affects the opening of every test.

 

I have noticed that UFT also seems to check the svn satus. All of my actions have an svn overlay like I can see it with TortoiseSVN.

Could this be the problem?

 

I have tested this with UFT 12.53 under Windows 7 and 14.02 under Windows 10.

 

Did I something wrong?

Can you help me to find a solution for this?

 

Thanks in advance.

hi, 

with SVN enabled, UFT does check the status of the file and it could bring down the performance. If it is OK to manage assets still in FileSystem instead of UFT, meaning you cannot check out\in in UFT, you can try the below workaround.

Create DWORD value DisableSVNIcon=1 under registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mercury Interactive\QuickTest Professional\MicTest

with this, UFT will skip all the SVN checks and should restore the performance. However, the replaying performance issue is not likely a result of SVN check. I hope it will be gone together. If not, it's another story.

Thanks.

I use a local copy of my svn repo which has very little overhead (other than locking the library files) overhead. Is this an option for you?

Thank you,

This seems to work. My tests are much quicker now.
