titleSQL Server Notes:
  • The user specified in the Login section should be a database owner (dbo) to have sufficient permissions to create tables and other objects as well as insert and update data. If you specified a new database, the user should have permission to create databases.
  • The network connection between the StresStimulus controller and SQL Server should be fast enough to transmit real-time insert transactions. VPN or WiFi networks maybe not fast enough. If StresStimulus determines that the network connection slows down the test execution, it will stop the test and display a slow connection error message.
  • If you use load agents that run as a Windows service, then SQL Server Windows Authentication will not work. This is because load agent Windows services run under Local system account. In this case always select SQL Server Authentication.
  • Increase the default SQLCommand Timeout property (sc) property when you have large tests and get errors like: Timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation.
