Measure on the user perception application response time and availability rate. Verify consistency between different elements on the infra to communicate to each other smoothly on a long run and load conditions.
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.
