Certain web resources create little impact on website performance and can be excluded from the load test. You can filter out HTTP sessions with certain content types that you aren't interested in testing.
When Test Wizard reaches the Content-Types step, a list of hosts used in during the recording will be displayed.
Note: Sessions with the content types added to the Excluded Content Types List before the recording will be automatically deleted.
Tip: You can also display the Content Types dialog by clicking Content Types on the Test Case Tree toolbar.
There are two ways to remove sessions with unwanted content types.
- Manual purging. To delete sessions from the test case with content types that do not require testing, in the Content-type filter list, check the boxes (a) on the left of the content types names and click Delete (b) on the toolbar.
- Automatic purging . After every re-recording, sessions with unwanted content types should be deleted again. To automate this process, StresStimulus maintains the Excluded Content Type List. Sessions with content types from this list will be automatically deleted in subsequent recordings. To add the selected content types to the list click the button (c) on the toolbar. To edit the Excluded Content Type List, click the button (d). You can access and edit the Excluded Content Type List after the recording from Stimulus Main Menu -> Host/Content-types -> Excluded Content-types. This list can have the content type or content type with wildcards.
