Product Details

The AppsLoad® and AppsMon® aim is to simulate all user actions and to replay them while computing the response time delays compared to a reference time.

AppsLoad® and AppsMon® record a scenario like an intelligent macro recorder and replay user actions like an automat. They handle Windows objects as well as thin client environment (TS or Citrix). There is no script to be written. What you need is simply to record user actions and replay them

Since AppsLoad® and AppsMon® are protocol independent, the application to be tested may be very complex and can include, for instance, Microsoft servers, Unix machines and even mainframes. They track performance from the end user’s perspective and support drag and drop, drawing, etc. The other advantage of recording action sequences is that the result obtained reflects real user activity (keystrokes, mouse movements, etc) whereas a traditional scripting tool generally reflects the result of an action and not the sequence used to reach the result.

When executing a scenario, AppsLoad® and AppsMon® test the graphical context of scenario execution on a continuous basis so that they remain synchronized with the reference scenario. This method can be used to adapt scenario execution speed to system constraints in real time and to precisely calculate application response times.

  • Measures end to end application response time.
  • Simulates user actions from different points of the infrastructure.
  • Identifies application issues around the clock (in production).
  • Protocol independent
  • Support any windows applications (Citrix, Web, Client/server, mainframe,..)
  • Alerts application managers via email, snmp traps, syslog, etc...

Features

  • Simulates virtual users at the graphical interface and not at the protocol level.
  • With no script, user actions are simply recorded and replayed.
  • Automatic recognition of application Windows objects.
  • Automatic recognition of pseudo bitmap objects with pattern matching.
  • Scenarios breakdown in transactions.
  • Scenarios packaged into Meta Scenarios.
  • Same scenario format for AppsLoad and AppsMon
  • Tests graphical context on continuous basis. If application response time slows down, the scenario does it as well
  • Scenario variabilization with different set of variables used on each loop.
  • Computes automatically the application response time and overall drift per scenario.
  • Computes automatically the transaction response time and drift per transaction.
  • Logs all metrics in a Microsoft SQL Data Base.
  • Performance visualization thru graphical interfaces.
  • Screenshots automatically taken on a scenario error.
  • Can run automatically batch file (.bat, .cmd) on alarm or/and error.
