Product Details

Micro Focus's Silk Performer is a load testing tool. It employs physical or virtual machines for load generation. In a Citrix load testing scenario Silk Performer uses the Citrix scripting API of the Citrix Receiver to simulate user input and thus generate load on the server.

Silk Performer is a stress and performance testing tool. It allows users to record user actions and capture them in a script. By associating scripts to settings profiles the user can design workloads following based on different workload models. While running the load test from either physical or virtual machines, Silk Performer captures server-side metrics to correlate them with the client-side measurements collected. A full-featured analysis and reporting module allows the user to detect and track down performance issues and create different business-level HTML or Word reports.

Silk Performer supports a variety of technologies, such as Web protocols, terminal emulation, Oracle Applications, SAP, Citrix and many others.

Benefits of integrating Silk Performer with Citrix product

  • By load testing itrix Virtual Apps, formerly XenApp or Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, formerly XenDesktop servers Silk Performer allows to do proper hardware sizing and capacity planning.
  • Using the Citrix Receiver scripting interface Silk Performer provides unique end user-focused response time measuring. Non-intrusive optical character recognition is used to capture and validate objects on screen while visual replay and logging shows exactly what happened when a failure occurred.
