Load Testing of MQ topic/subscriberOpen in a New Window


In my current project, I need to load test one architecture consisting of event services which will publish messages to the MQ topic and there are subscriber applications which will listen to the topics and take action accordingly like sending notification or updating database. My question is what should be in scope of load testing for this arcitecture:

I have the services to send the messages to the MQ topics, but dont have any information how the subscriber application is listening to the topic assuming the call is asynchrnous in nature. Do we have any mechanism to test the subscriber funcationlity at all with loadrunner or we should restrict the testing of the publishing messages only? 

Any help will be highly appreciated


Javascript Syntax for lr.[start][end]Timer FunctionOpen in a New Window


Can anyone help me with the lr.startTimer | lr.endTimer function? I can't find an example of syntax. I want to use it to measure different sections that are loading to a page independently of each other.

Can I use it like lr.start|endTransaction or do I need to develop a method?

JS files does not load on TruClient browsersOpen in a New Window

Hello Team,

I’m trying to record a TruClient script for a customer. Their website seems to work perfectly on all the browsers [Chrome, Firefox and IE]. But when I try to develop the script using TruClient, the page that loads some java script files from an external source doesn’t work and what happens to be a scheduler doesn’t get generated. [Screenshot below]. I even checked the console log, it says the JS files couldn’t be loaded, it is considering the files as insecure content as they are using HTTP instead of HTTPS.

Could you please suggest me a work around for this.

How to handle cookies in Load RunnerOpen in a New Window

Hi guys,

I have a loadrunner script with too many refresh_tokens and access_tokens. Both refresh_tokens and access_tokens are changing on every links in my script. I collerrated all these values and/ pass them to the links below. 

the problem starts when I'm loading users for a test. they fail with the error, "No match found for the requested parameter "pAccess_Cookie_4". Either the specified boundaries were not found in the response or the matched text is longer than current max html parameter size of 4096 bytes. The total length of the response is 25 bytes. You can use "web_set_max_html_param_len" to increase the max parameter size."


"access_token": "eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsIng1dCI6ImEzck1VZ01Gdjl0UGNsTGE2eUY
 "expires_in": 60,\r\n
"token_type": "Bearer",\r\n
"refresh_token": "9e92534807396d483bcd50a90bdb676d"\r\n

Please help me find a better way to handle these tokens.




No Snapshots Available! time to learn a new fact about itOpen in a New Window

Snapshot view is the feature I use the MOST for my script dev and it can get really frustrating sometimes to not find your replay snapshots for no apparent reasons. I do understand that if you're hand coding the script, there isn't going to be any recorded snapshot but replay snapshot should only depend on the "Snapshot=" argument in action functions. It doesn't always.

I have a script with following structure (shown in figure) where the logic for execution is in the main action. It determines and then execute any one or two of the other named actions. For some reason, I don't see any snapshot for the named actions. All the code in vuser_init and Action can capture and display the snapshot but not the rest. The result folder contains the snapshot files captured but for some reason LR vugen doesn't display those. A big inconvenience.

Chinese Language support using Vugen protocol http/html & web serviceOpen in a New Window

Using Loadrunner 12.53 on windows 7  64 bit o/s, Vugen with a multiple protocol for http/html & Web service.  I am trying to update and use "chinese characters" in a soap request that works today using English characters.  When i copy / paste the chinese characters "名" in the request it is sending as "???".    I tried using a paramter but still it converts to non character. 


Any ideas?  I need to process this as it is passed to a converter function and I need to performance test the impact of the process.  

                           "<GivenName>晨 辰</GivenName>"
                           "<MiddleName>晨  辰</MiddleName>"


in replay becomes 

<PersonName><GivenName>hf \xB0\x8F\r</GivenName>

<MiddleName>hf \xB0\x8F\r</MiddleName><Surname>hf \xB0\x8F\r</Surname>

Response time mismatch while running Selenium in Java VUserOpen in a New Window

Hi All,

I am trying to execute the selenium script as Java VUser script. When I executed the script, I am experiencing mismatch in the response time of Java VUser script  compared to response time captured in the web script of the same test case. For eg. 90 percentile of Launch the app transaction takes 0.5 secs in web meanwhile same takes 3.5 secs in the Java VUser script.

Please suggest me how to identify the server response time for the same transaction. Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
