  2. 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…

  3. command line enhancements suggestions

    Ability to automatically run a load test, generate the report in html format and generate a cross load result of new build against previous build (baseline) to detect the performance imipact (html format), without the manual involvement. Thus the command line features of silk performer components are very important.

  4. export/import user profiles

    For our test campaigns we generally reuse same user profiles from project to project. It would be glad to have a small tool allowing to export/import user profiles, allowing to store them out of individual project into a kind of user profiles repository.

  5. Provide features to filter results (Timer/Transactions/Scripts)

    Please provide features to filter results after a testrun.
    So it would be great to hide specific page/custom timer or just hide TInit/TEnd Transactions. Furthermore I would appreciate if it would be possible to hide whole Scripts. Maybe you habe a test where also a monitoring script was executed but you don't want to see this in the Overview Report.

  6. Option in the GUI to start monitoring from multiple instances of Performance Explorer

    When using multiple instances of Performance Explorer on different machines; have an option to start monitoring and "write data" for all of these monitors.
    This is already possible using the command line but a GUI option would be helpful.

  7. Email report at the end of a load test automatically.

    It would be good to have the option to automatically email the overview report at the end of a load test.

  8. easily add/remove CloudBurst agents for specific scripts/workloads in the same way that you can currently with locally installed agents

    The ability to easily add/remove CloudBurst agents for specific scripts/workloads in the same way that you can currently with locally installed agents.
    Currently you need to do this on the 'agent assignment" tab of the Workload Configuration dialog but it would be useful if CloudBurst agents were treated just as local agents.

  9. 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.

  10. Performance Explorer – launching program as the remote server user

    Having to launch Perfexp as the remote server user should be improved. I should be able to give a user account with the relevant permissions when monitoring perfmon.

  11. License server details in Help | About

    Have an entry in Help | About showing which license server provides the licenses in the same dialogue.

    Saves some time checking which server is currently used in the LS config manager.

  12. Persisting changes to the active profile

    I've been convinced by support that adding jQuery to:

    settings

    /active profile

    /record

    /web browser driven

    / Recording tab

    so that I end up with something like:

    CHECKED, DISABLED, style, width, height, size, __, class, JQuery*

    is a good thing.

    Could you please make this so we can make the change globally and keep it, as opposed to having to edit each individual / new project to add this value? It would save users valuable time having to go back and troubleshoot the same issues over and over.

  13. 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.

  14. 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");

  15. Define Transaction Iterations outside the script

    Ability to define the no.of iterations my transactions inside the script should run. Currently, this is done within the script. So, say if I have to run 5 iterations of each script and there 20 scripts in my project I will have to manually open each one and update the counts and change it back when needed. This is a pain. Easier way to do it would be outside of the scipt. Please consider.

  18. error rate

    It is rather common to fix as of acceptability criteria a maximal rate of error.
    Overview report's user types section provides #Transaction OK and #Transaction failed. But error rate must be manually calculated. Can be a good think to get this information built-in the report.

  20. Change the color scheme of the horizontal & vertical scroll bars in the new Test Summary pages

    In the Baseline Summary page the horizontal scroll is not too visible. I think the grey color theme could be changed such that both the vertical and horizontal bars are seen easily. If the screen is re-sized, the Next Steps and Help topic sections are not displayed in view.
