    Hello Everyone,


    I am trying to create a test tool setup to do some load testing. I have followed CA documentation for preparing test tool setup for stress testing. Everything runs but there is no result. And it is also not showing any error as well.


    I am uploading test tool setup files, if anyone can find what's the problem in my script files, it would be very helpful.

    There are a couple of issues in Control file (e.g. missing thread / repitition control / .connect should be smtest.ini).

    Please check this thread. I have a sample Control File and INI file pasted as replies.


    Re: SiteMinder Stress Test




    TRY THIS as you Control File.



    .sleep 5000

    .connect smtest.ini

    Hello Hubert,

    Have corrected it now but still no success. I referred to the link as well to see if I am missing anything. I am suspecting that test tool is not calling my smtest.ini file.


    Correct me if I am wrong.

    smtest.ini file will have stored configuration which is related to only test agent connecting to policy server successfully. I have kept smtest.ini file in folder "C:\Users\appadm\Desktop\test_tool_files\neeraj\" and have tried both options separately.


    .connect smtest.ini

    .connect C:\Users\appadm\Desktop\test_tool_files\neeraj\smtest.ini.


    how does .connect call smtest.ini file? When I click on run script, I see that 50 iterations are happening but test tool is not reading the data present in smtest.ini file or smtestrecord.txt file.


    Do you see any mistakes in smtest.ini file ?

    No No NeerajChase


    Do not create a file called as smtest.ini; this is a proprietary command to initiate the SmTestTool.


    smtest.ini is not a physical file.



    TRY ONLY THIS. Do not create a smtest.ini file. It is a initialization command for SmTest Tool.



    .sleep 5000

    .connect smtest.ini

    So have only 2 files under the SmTestTool folder.

    - Control File. (e.g. see above).

    - Recorded File (e.g. smtestrecord.txt).


    Now open a SmTestTool. Run one Txn i.e. Connect / IsProtected / IsAuthenticated / IsAuthorized.


    Then flip to Advanced Setting. Open the control file in SmTestTool. Then execute.
