  2. Automatically update codepage to that of current system

    When exporting projects and sharing with colleagues who have different codepages the codepage function produces an error until the codepage is updated. So it would be good if part of the import included a check for codepage and an update of this function.

  3. Add in some new css styles for overview reports

    At present there is only one template for overview reports, some flexibility would be good here to better customize the finished report. only basic customization is available at the moment.

  4. Post test results to a web server

    It would be good to have results automatically posted to a web server and a link provided for where they are available.

  7. Right click context menu for declaring variables

    When coding it would be nice if after typing a new variable you could right click on it and declare it at the top automatically.

  8. truelog customize seeesion handling - including header data

    Current sesion handling is only works with response body data. In the field multiple transactions is the mostly used rather than single transaction and this creates webcookie functions with hard coded session data. We need to handle this one manually and consumes a lot of time.

    ex) WebCookieSet("JSESSIONID=FCCF2F70D0BA8DC414DAAAD25507F127; domain=10.30.23.22; path=/; expires=Sun, 08 Jan 2023 11:31:23 GMT", "http://10.30.23.22:8080/kc/tu/KCTUStatAlert/selectM1.do");

  9. Spliting up the response time from Total Time.

    Spliting up the response time from Total Time.

    Example:

    In one of my application after clicking the tab, grid is going to load in 3 passes i.e. first the standard columns, then the column of action buttons, then the user-defined property columns.
    We want to measure response time for all 3 stages individually. Currently this is not possible using silkperformer tool.Using “fiddler” tool we can do it

  12. Ignoring recorded fwait values on playback

    Allow on Playback of the recorded script the capability to ignore any fwait values without running the workload in stress mode. We understand the purpose of the fwait, but would prefer the default of 0.00 to be used without having to modify every fwait that has a value greater than 0.

  13. Allow browser driven to record silverlight applications

    Allow browser driven projects to record silverlight applications. We are seeing more of these types of applications, and would be nice to be able to record them and do performance testing on them.

  14. Show in any case in the Overview Report the available measurements

    After the load test was terminated with Kill All, although measurements are available, but are omitted in the Overview Report.
    Since the measurements are available, it would be very good to display this in the Overview Report.

  15. Provide a way to check inside the script if stop button was pressed or loadtest has ended

    Currently it is possible only to end the script at the moment the loadtest has ended or to finish the whole transaction. If some parts of the transaction should not be interrupted, but the whole transaction might take a long time to complete, we have to wait for the whole transaction to complete at the end of the test.

    As an example - we have a loop inside the transaction that will go to the next iteration based on some probability, so while the mean number of repetitions is low, it might climb even to several hours. We can not…

  17. Option to Extend Acceptable Attribute Value with Browser Driven Recording in Silk Performer

    During a BDLT recording, it seems that the acceptable max value length for an attribute is 20 characters long, if the value supersedes this length the recorder will move on and select another attribute as part of the XPath Locator.

    A feature which increases the acceptable length of a value for an attribute during record would be beneficial, for example SilkTest have the ability to edit the following:

    OPTXBROWSERLOCATORMAXATTRIBUTEVALUELENGTH

  19. .Net Explorer doesn't support for passing optional parameters to C# methods

    Currently Silk Performer 9.0 doesn't support passing optional parameters to C# methods. When I call methods without optional parameters, it throws exception "Missing Method" and when I pass all parameters it works fine. I strongly recommend Micro Focus to implement this feature.
