LoadRunner

Hi Experts

I am trying to use Loadrunner to record Business processes in ECC5.0 to perform load test. This process requires upload of a document from my local machine every time I do the transactions to trigger a work flow. Without the workflow the transaction does not write to the data base. Now the problem is that the LR recording engine does not record the file upload process as it happens on the local machine inside a windows file open box and there is no network communication happening. Can you guys suggest something to counter this issues. Thanks.

    I'm not sure whether I understand that.

    Actually, if you "upload" something to a web server than there must be network communication.

    In Internet Explorer you can use for example http://www.httpwatch.com/ to find out what request is send, when you upload a document.

    Hi Markus

    The transaction is being done in the SAPGUI frontend. This is not a web recording. The whole process is thus like

    open the sapgui frontend and log in and then execute a transactions such as fv50 and enter the various line items and park the document. Opent he parked document to store a business document. This is the time when the doc is uploaded into the IXOS environment. This triggers the workflow. I hope you understand the situation now.

      Ok I understand.

      I'm not familiar with IXOS and how upload is done.

      I would suggest that you open a customer message.

      If a standard protocol like HTTP is used, than you can manually add the request to your Loadrunner script.

    Hey Pankaj,

    If you are using loadrunner with the web/html protocol and trying to upload via the sapgui within the web/html script, you will to use the loadrunner sap gui protocol to record this. The web protocol in loadrunner/vuser will not work as soon as you initiate the sap gui.

      Hi Pankaj,

      In order to perform this, you need to use SAPGUI <b>together</b> with SAPWeb protocol. Loadrunner supports multiple protocols within the same scripts already for many years.

      This will result in a script which performs both SAPGUI and Web operations.

      BTW, you need to have license for both SAPGUI and Web protocols in order to be able to replay such scripts under load.

      If you activated both protocols and still the upload is not recorded and/or replayed as expected, please, contact Mercury support. If you have no luck there, you can contact me directly.

    Hi Pankaj

    You're right, Loadrunner is intended for Web environment, however you have a free tool included in your Solution Manager (if you have an ECC 6.0, you must have one) that is based on eCAT, you can program those eCAT to perform the test over standard SAPGui based scenario.

    Hope this helps.

    Best Regards,

    Luis
