This guide provides an overview and describes the task flows to get you to start with HCL OneTest™ Performance. This guide is intended for new users.
Task flows for performance testing
The task flows are designed to help you understand the end-to-end process of some of the capabilities of performance testing. For some of the technologies, there are specific task flows that you can follow to gain a clear understanding of the process.
Product overview
You can gain the conceptual understanding of the product and its test extensions with these topics.
Streamlined Eclipse and full Eclipse overview
When you work in the streamlined Eclipse mode, only those functions that are directly related to the product are enabled in the workbench. When you install the product, by default, the check box to use the streamlined Eclipse mode is selected. With the full Eclipse mode, you have access to all Eclipse functions.
This section describes about the sample project which can be used with HCL OneTest™ Performance to test the functionality of an application.
Installation tuning tests for WebSphere® Application Server
The installation tuning tests were created to quickly and conveniently apply load to an application server for the purpose of tuning the application server for maximum throughput. The three tests that are provided stress various parts of the application server.
This guide describes how to install HCL OneTest™ Performance. After you install the product, you can perform administration tasks such as license configuration and integration with other products. This guide is intended for administrators.
Installation of the product
Installation of the product involves verifying requirements, planning, managing licenses, and configuring web-based help. This section lists all such topics.
License management
Licensing for HCL OneTest™ Performance is administered through HCL Software License & Download portal. This portal is a FlexNet-based web application that helps to manage software entitlements and licenses.
Product upgrade and migration
When you want to use the enhanced functionalities of HCL OneTest™ Performance, you must upgrade to the latest version of the product software.
Configuration of the product
Use these topics to configure the product.
Integration with other products
You can integrate HCL OneTest™ Performance with certain products to run tests, manage test assets, and create defects.
This guide describes how to create test scripts in HCL OneTest™ Performance and enhances tests by applying different test elements such as dataset, variables, and verification points. This guide is intended for testers.
Creating tests
To create a test, you record representative interactions with an application.
Editing tests
After you record a test, you can edit it to include datasets (to provide variable data rather than the data that you recorded), verification points (to confirm that the test runs as expected), and data correlation (to ensure that returned data is appropriate for the corresponding request). You can also add protocol-specific elements to a test. When you edit a test, the modified items appear in italic type. The italic type changes to regular type after you save the test.
Compound tests
You can create compound tests to help you organize smaller tests into scenarios that can then be run end-to-end. You can combine tests from different extensions to achieve end-to-end flow.
Simulating services with stubs
Service stubs enable you to simulate the behavior of an actual service for a wide variety testing or integration purposes.
Sending service requests with the generic service client
The generic service client enables you to send requests to services for which you do not have a convenient client and to view the responses returned by the service.
Emulating workloads
You emulate a workload by creating a schedule and adding user groups/rate runner groups, tests, and other elements to it.
This guide describes tasks that you can perform on schedules, test execution with custom code, and Extending HCL OneTest™ Performance to support other protocols. This guide is intended for testers or test execution specialists.
Running schedules with performance testing
After you have added the user groups, tests, and other items to a schedule, and you are satisfied that it represents a realistic workload, you run the schedule.
Extending test execution with custom code
You can extend how you run your tests by writing custom Java™ code and calling the code from the test. You can also specify that results from the tests that are affected by your custom code be included in reports.
Extending HCL OneTest™ Performance to support other protocols
The HCL OneTest™ Performance Extensibility Software Development Kit (SDK) enables you to create extensions to support testing new protocols without modifying the core product code. You can create an extension that provides functionality for testing other protocols in addition to the HTTP protocol support that is standard in HCL OneTest Performance.
This guide describes how to keep track of the performance of the application by evaluating the test results. This guide is intended for test managers.
Evaluating results
After the test or schedule run completes, the performance data is displayed in the results. The results include various reports. You can evaluate the results in the web analytic reports. Web analytics collect data using new technologies thereby providing better user experience.
Customizing reports
You can customize reports to specifically investigate a performance problem in more detail than what is provided in the default reports.
Export test results
You can export the test result in different formats to share it with different stakeholders.
Viewing response time breakdown
You can do detailed analysis of the response time to find bottlenecks in the HTTP traffic of the application.
Viewing resource monitoring data
You can analyze the performance of the computer resources, application server, or database servers by viewing the resource monitoring data in web analytics reports.
Logs overview
HCL OneTest™ Performance uses logs to store different types of information, which you can use to determine the reason for a test failure.
Reports and counters
See the description of the counters for all of the performance reports.
