loadtesting peoplesoft application in loadrunner

Hi,
Could you please let me know which protocol has to be used for testing peoplesoft application in loadrunner?
Is it web(HTTP/HTML) or Peoplesoft protocol?
Thanks.

Re: loadtesting peoplesoft application in loadrunner

Web can be used to record Peoplesoft applications. However, you might end up with a lot of long strings to be correlated even after using the correlation rules for automatic correlation. The peoplesoft protocol has better correlation rules to correlate strings that you would encounter in a peoplesoft application. The best one should be the peoplesoft protocol. However, you can record a sample flow in both the protocols and see which one would be comfortable for you to work with.

Thanks

Prashant is correct in his view.

Attaching the list of LR supported protocols.

Its part of Oracle E-Biz bundle.

Try recording using peoplesoft click and script and let me know...if you have any issues...

Re: loadtesting peoplesoft application in loadrunner

Hi,
Could you please let me know if any specific software needs to b installed like the tuxedo for load testing pplsoft application.Have you faced any peculiar issues during this loadtesting?
It would be great if you can share your knowledge w.r.t loadtest pplsoft.
Thanks in advance.
P.S:
We are going to use web protocol as we dont have the license bundle for pplsoft.

Re: loadtesting peoplesoft application in loadrunner

Since your application is being accessed by a web url, you will not be requiring any additional setup at your LG to enable you to load test the application. Your virtual users will use the url to access your application(which can be hitting a Tuxedo server), hence it would not affect your plan.

Before you can conclude on this, I would suggest you to create a simple script of login and logout of your application and run it for a simple 5 users and see if it satisfies your requirement. This will enable you to confirm your idea with a POC.
