How to exclude the Unwanted hosts/URL's in web performance test? RRS feed

Answers

  • A plugin for filtering (removing) unwanted dependant requests is described on page 189 of "Visual Studio Performance Testing Quick Reference Guide" (Version 3.6), see http://vsptqrg.codeplex.com/ . It is easy to create variations of the plugin that have tests other than the Url...StartsWith() written in the core of the code.

    We tested a web page that included some image files but some were not available on the severer and so those dependant requests always failed. The images were merely for logos and not important for the test. So we called the above plugin specifying the image URL and the missing file did not cause a test failure. Of course we told the developers about the missing images.

  • Hi Nandini

    I think we can delete them from WPTs by delete button on keyboard. Select the unwanted url and hit delete button. I am not sure about the impact on WPT by this deletion.

    Thanks

  • Hi Sudhish,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I dont want to delete any URL. wanted to know whether do we have any option to exclude hosts/URL's.

    In dependant request am not getting few host names. Internally the main URL is calling some hosts.
