Note: The following protocols are directly supported by Silk Performer and do not require the types of customizations that are described in this section. Protocols not listed below, including so called legacy systems, do require script customization:
  • TN3270
  • TN5250
  • VT100
  • VT200+

All of the protocols discussed in this section are based on TCP/IP. With Silk Performer, you can record protocols at the TCP level and customize the resulting scripts using WebTcpip functions. With Silk Performer enhanced TCP/IP support, TrueLog Explorer, and rule-based recording, the process is straightforward.

This section has two objectives:

Memory Usage of TCP/IP Virtual Users

Each virtual user running in its own process requires approximately 1.6 MB system memory.

Running more than one user per process results in the following memory consumption:

  • 25 vusers: Approx. 0.2 MB per vuser
  • 50 vusers: Approx. 0.1 MB per vuser
