QV Scalability Tools (QV10,QV11,QV12)

This package (referred to as QVScalabilityTools) contains a complete set of tools for easy creation, execution and analyzing of load/performance tests and regression tests.

 

QlikView documents to help analyze result and log files(This was previously included in this package):Scalability Results Analyzer

 

Older versions of the tool can be found here: Tool for easy creation of load/performance tests of QlikView (v.10 and 11)

Tools for Qlik Sense can be found here: Qlik Sense Scalability Tools

 

Note: Using windows built-in unzip functionality will not allow the .exe to launch unless unblocking zipped package first (properties -> unblock).

Note: Regarding Apache Log4j, reference CVE-2021-44228 (also referred to as Log4Shell), these set of tools are not directly vulnerable to the exploit, however JMeter, the tool required as a separate download, is. How to mitigate the vulnerability for JMeter has been documented here : https://community.qlik.com/t5/Knowledge/Qlik-Scalability-tools-and-log4j/ta-p/1872009 

Included parts are:

  • Standalone application for creating a JMeter script
  • Support files for launching the script by utilizing the JMeter engine (JMeter installed is a pre-requisite)
  • Documentation on how to use the package

Version 1.2.7->1.2.8

  • Changes Section Access requests

Changelog 1.2.6->1.2.7

  • NTLM support removed due current solution broken and lack of a new secure solution.

I am trying to use this tool to run some regression tests but am running into a problem with authentication. I have the test using NTLM authentication, and am also able to confirm that I can get into my apps using my network credentials without any problem.

The test is very simple - login to access point, open document, then make a random selection from a listbox. Whenever I run my test though, I see this in the logs:

1582847730495,9,/QvAJAXZfc/Authenticate.aspx,401,Unauthorized,QlikView 1-1,,false,140,1,1,9

I also see this error (I replaced object IDs with # symbols):

1582847765326,51,JSR223 Sampler - validate ObjectID,418,Assertion Failed! Extraction of values to make selection in ##### failed. Please check if Object ##### exitst.,QlikView 1-1,text,false,0,1,1,0

Any suggestions on where I should look to find out where I'm going at this incorrectly?

Hi Fellas,

Will the scalability tool works on DMS with NTLM Authentication ?

Hi,

NTLM support was removed in  version 1.2.7

Yes I'm aware, was hoping to get any other solution with my current Auth method. So the only way to go forward in Header Auth ? Thanks for the response @Daniel_Larsson

Header auth is the currently preferred method yes. Theoretically it should be possible to set it up with Anonymous with IIS, however this has not been tested by us for a long time.

Hello,

We are trying to run the benchmarking tool for QV12. Post-implementation of all the steps mentioned in the pdf as it is, we are getting the below error when PowerShell tries to  Invoke Web request to Access Point.

401- Unauthorized access is denied due to invalid credentials.

We have enabled DMS authorization (we use NTFS and NTLM)and set the authentication type to Header as mentioned in the docs.

The chrome extension is also enabled for QVUSER, but we are still stuck with this issue.

Hi,
I assume with "the chrome extension" you mean a header mod extension. If you try to use that to log in manually with header authentication towards the server, does it work?

Hi Daniel,

We are able to manually log in to the access point using the header mod extension.

Getting the above error 401- Unauthorized access is denied due to invalid credentials when we try to do the same thing with the Powershell script.

There's one more thing, even with header extension enabled with all appropriate settings in QMC. Access Point still Prompts for the credentials.

After providing my creds, it logs in with QVUSER.

Ideally with DMS authorization and Header enabled, it should not prompt us for user creds?

If you are getting a credentials prompt you are logging in with your NTLM user and not the user set in the QVUSER header.
So this mean the DMS and Header settings are not correct and this is the reason the tool cannot login, nor the login using header extension mod.

Can you please verify your settings comparing to the screenshots in the documentation?
