Analyzing Tests

Once a BDL-formatted test script has been recorded and saved using the Silk Performer Recorder, you should test the script by performing a Try Script run. Try Script runs are not actual load tests; they are trial test runs that provide you the opportunity to see if your script requires debugging. It is recommended that you perform a Try Script run each time a customization is added to a script. When a Try Script run is initiated via the Try Script button, TrueLog Explorer opens automatically with the TrueLog of the most recent test run open.

Test analysis with TrueLog Explorer involves the following three tasks:
  • Viewing Virtual User Summary reports
  • Finding errors
  • Comparing replay test runs with recorded test runs
