Rule-Based Recording

This section explains how to configure Silk Performer's Recorder (HTTP, TCP/IP) using recording rule files. It describes the structure and syntax of recording rules and shows examples. Recording rules are an advanced Silk Performer concept. You need to have a thorough understanding of the involved protocols (TCP/IP, HTTP and HTML) and of Silk Performer.

Note: You can not only manually script recording rules, you can also use templates from the Recording Rules tab.
Recording rules allow you to configure the Recorder in a number of ways:
  • TCP/IP: By providing protocol descriptions of proprietary TCP/IP based protocols.
  • HTTP: By specifying the scenarios in which the Recorder should script parsing functions for dynamically changing values and generate replacements for those values.
