I haven't really understood how this scalibility tool handles QlikView Server Clusters. If I have a Cluster with 4 nodes, should I run  four different tests on these nodes seperately? Or can I add all the nodes into the configuration and analyse them in one test?

Hi you can run them in one test, then you link the performance counters together using the Testlogmeta.txt file, you can access this from within the QVD generator.

I'm getting an error when I try to compare results from the regression analyzer. Has anyone else received this error before?

I haven't had a read problem, but I would check this, in this order:

  1. Is it the files in (ToolRoot)\RegressionResults\(TestName)-(QvVersion)-(Timestamp) you're comparing?
  2. Can you access the file manually, e.g. open with notepad?
  3. Is the file corrupt in some way?

Thanks Daniel. It seems when I run my tests one of the ending tags is missing from the output xml </requestedobject>. It happens each time I run a test.

Sorry for late reply.

If I understand correctly this happens for just one requested object, the other ones in the script are working fine.

Could you please give us information in what type of object is failing for you (ListBox, MultiBox, ...)?

Also information on which version of QlikView are you testing on can be helpful.

This should help us investigate.

This occurred in a script making static selections from a listbox and multibox. It also occurred in another script when making a selection from a straight table.

Hi Sebastian,

I'm having the same issue. The XML file is not generated correctly. The same script runs fine in the previous version.

Also the server version and the "open document" action are not recognised:

Version 1.1

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<testresult testname="Regresion - op in 02 Regr1 - Simple" QVSversion= "11.20.13405.0409" Document="OP IN 02 Indirect sales analysis report Regr1.qvw" timeStamp="2017-02-17-040557">

  <requestedobject action="OD #2" id="OP IN 02 Indirect sales analysis report Regr1.qvw" inputValue="" threadIteration="1" testLoop="0">

  <returnedobject id="LB615_430655325" type="LB" help="ListBox" mode="hidden">

.....

Version 1.2

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<testresult testname="Regresion - op in 02 Regr1 - Simple" QVSversion= "NoVersion" Document="OP IN 02 Indirect sales analysis report Regr1.qvw" timeStamp="2017-02-17-054624">

    <requestedobject action="null" id="null" inputValue="null" threadIteration="1" testLoop="0">

        <returnedobject id="LB615_430655325" type="LB" help="ListBox" mode="hidden"></returnedobject>

....

Many Thanks,

Adrian

Hi ,

I am new to scalability testing and while collecting logs I am facing a issue that Failed to get QVS list From Localhost(server name) .

Please find the screenshot below. What could be the issue ?

Hi,

First, it's not recommended to run a scalability test towards the local machine since the tool will use a few GB of memory which might effect the performance of the engine.

Secondly, there's a "Log" tab which possibly might contain information of why logs cannot be collected.

The reason that you don't have access rights to read the webserver configuration, or don't have one.

Since you're running locally it might be easier to collect the log files manually or semi-manually.

Semi-manually: Click the "+" under "Paths to log files" and enter the paths where log files are saved, then press the "scan" button to the right within the "Paths to log files" box.

Using the servername "localhost" might also get you into problems connecting the sever info and performance counters in the analyzer app, make sure to correctly edit the meta-data om qvd-generator to have these connected properly to the servername in performance counter log files and server info xml (response time would still show correctly though).

Re: QV Scalability Tools (QV10,QV11,QV12)

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your reply.

One more thing I want to know is that how do we come to know that the application has been connected to the tool. Like in case of qliksense there is connect to app button which tells us that if the application is connected to tool or not and ready to use. In this case I am not able to identify whether my app is connected to the tool or not.
