By default, a test case recorded against a website will test the same website. The Host remapping feature allows to re-target the host, which was used to record a test case, to a host which should be load tested. If you need to re-use a test case for another website, the host name or IP address and its port can be changed. For example, a test case originally recorded against a production server has to run against a test server.

    Port remapping allows to record a test case against the host listening on the port other than 80 (or 443 for HTTPS) and then target a different port during load tests. If the port is not specified, then HTTP will be used port 80 and for HTTPS will be used port 443

    To configure host/port remapping, follow these steps:

    Standalone version

    1. In StresStimulus Main Menu -> Options -> Hosts/Content-Types, select Remap Hosts

    3. Make sure that the Enable Host Remapping is checked

    4. On every line, enter a new host and the original host, separated by at least one whitespace character ; optionally add the new port and the original port to the host: {New Host}:{New Port} {Old Host}:{Old Port}

    Use host names or IP addresses. For example: 111.222.33.44:8888 testedwebsite.com
