The first step in load testing with StresStimulus is to record a test case. A test script is automatically created by recording a user navigation scenario.

The user's requests and server responses are captured by a proxy and stored in StresStimulus as test case objects.


Note: The add-on version uses Fiddler's proxy. The Standalone version uses its own proxy which can work side-by-side with the Fiddler proxy.

To start recording, click Record Test Case in the Workflow Tree. The Test Wizard will display the Recording Source step.

Enter Test Case name (optional), then select a recording source.

  • To load test websites, select Web Browser, then from the drop-down, select the browser type and click Next. Browsers installed on your computer will be on the list. The following browsers are supported: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari.
  • To load test other client applications, such as Silverlight or Flex, select Non-browser applications, and then click Record.
  • To load test mobile apps accessed from external devices, select Mobile device, then click Record.
  • To open a previously saved test, select the Open existing test and click Open
  • By default StresStimulus breaks down requests into pages. You can disable automatic page breakdown. To do so, un-checked the Group requests into pages box. This can be helpful when, instead of tracking the performance of pages, you prefer to track performance of transactions which are used to group requests manually. Disabling pages is also helpful when testing Web services.
