Thank you. Since I was only doing parallel user testing, I set the iterations from 25 and 1 leaving the concurrent users at 25. This time I didn't get any max sessions used error since every user is used only once.
I am still getting the "ERR failed to get DocList: EOF Action=openhub"; not a showstopper though.

This error is most likely due to authentication problems, your settings for the server etc is correct and a websocket is established, but on first command we are instantly disconnected without error.  Assuming you are using header authentication? In that case make sure the headername corresponds to the header name defined in your virtual proxy.

Also please also please verify you can log in "manually" as that user towards the virtualproxy using a modify header extension in your browser. E.g. if using chrome, https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/modheader/idgpnmonknjnojddfkpgkljpfnnfcklj . There are many others, same for firefox.

Excuse me for me ignorance here, but none of the users I used show up under QMC - I felt these were virtual users with no real existence. Do all these users need to exist on Qlik and need to show up in QMC?

To add, none of these users have showed up in the tool command run output as unable to login or anything like that. I found the logs from the time when i run the tool and all entries show up as the root user --> DEV1623\qlikadmin.

If you can run a test without errors yes they should show up, as far as Sense knows they are real users. But as I pointed out in previous post you seem to have an authentication issue and the users are not actually let in.

I am able to run the tool and see the results as well as the results log. But the traffic logs are not being generated.

Thanks @Daniel_Larsson. I got the tool working.

I am able to get the tool log file; but in spite of me telling the tool to generate traffic logs, it is not generating any tsv file.

Hi! The tool does not generate a separate traffic log - the traffic logging is added in the regular result log. So take a look in there and you should find additional log lines marked with traffic in addition to the regular logging.

In your screenshot you have clearly named the file *.log so in your case you would have a file called .log in the path you defined. This is a  .tsv file, if you want it to work in the analyzer you need to save it with .tsv extension.

And just to note, We normally do not recommend having full traffic turned on if you want to analyze performance as this would create a very big result file, and you would most likely performance test your harddrive instead. For performance analysis using the analyzer no traffic is needed. If you want for some reason to see the response time of individual requests you can turn on the traffic metrics instead of traffic. The only reason to turn on traffic would be to see all sent and received requests including everything in the result file, i.e. mostly for debugging.
