Simulating Users

Post by tnt.Keith » Fri Nov 16, 2012 4:53 pm


I'm fairly new to Ranorex Studio, and as such I am in need of assistance.

I am trying to simulate a large number of users to a website, and I'm wonder if Ranorex is capable of doing so. We're hoping to simulate this to test the state of our servers and understand how to better the site in the case of large amounts of user-based traffic.

I'm assuming there is a data-driven test that may be able to replicate this need, but am uncertain. Can anyone assist me?

Let me thank everyone ahead of time.

Ranorex is a Functional Automation tool and not a Performance tool. Therefore it is not designed to simulate users to test performance or stress testing. You need to either look into using a tool designed for simulating large amount of user's traffic or code your own.
