QlikView 11 Hardware Benchmarking Package

This download contains a document that outlines all required information on how to access/execute/analyze/submit results for the QlikView Hardware Benchmarking test package. The goal with the QV HW Benchmarking package is to have a unified QlikView specific Hardware test that can be executed for various environments with the aim to establish a matrix for comparisons on how different servers and configurations perform with QlikView. The document contains information on how to download additional files needed and where to upload the results. This package only supports QlikView 11.

The QV Hardware benchmarking package consists of two parts, stand-alone QV desktop based and a QlikView Server based Benchmark tests, focusing different areas of hardware performance. QV documents and scripted tests are part of the Benchmarking package.

This package can be used for analytics on your own to perform comparisons of performance for different hardware configurations, but more important is that any test results are provided to the Scalability Center, making sure that your results becomes part of the general summary to improve coverage and statistical accuracy of the results.

Please take the time to help out with these types of activities to establish useful guidelines about which servers to recommend (i.e. where QlikView performs well).

  • Benchmarking Analyzer with documentation is available on FTP

Major changes for version 3.0:

  • Larger data volume in Benchmarking application – change done to put heavier load on server, it also should reduce load client dependency
  • Updated Batch files:
    • Added: Feedback if automatic remote restart of services is possible
    • Added: execute selected scenarios only
    • With functionality to execute only selected scenarios Benchmarking package can be run if remote service restart is not possible (NOTE: restarts of QVS and WebServer should be performed manually)
  • Reduced execution time (to approximately 4,5h)


We got some reports about problems with QVScalabilityTools and QlikView Hardware Benchmarking test when used with JMeter 3.2. We recommend using JMeter 3.0 or 4.0.

Best regards,

Scalability Center

Hi all;

How many user cal's are need for Server tests?



The application contains an embedded license up to 1000 Document CALs, so you should not use any of your own platform. The document describes how to set it up so you don't have to allocate any additional CALs from the server that hosts this QVW.

Hi Miguel!!

Great to read you,

Thank you very much,

Best regards.


I was getting errors in the benchmark logs "Non HTTP response code: java.lang.NullPointerException". After googling I found that this is due to cookie policy.  load testing - Non HTTP Response code:java.lang.NullPointerException error when running jmeter test ...

Remove the following line from each file in the BenchmarkJMX folder to correct the problem.

      <CookieManager guiclass="CookiePanel" testclass="CookieManager" testname="HTTP Cookie Manager" enabled="true">

        <collectionProp name="CookieManager.cookies" />

        <boolProp name="CookieManager.clearEachIteration">true</boolProp>

        <stringProp name="CookieManager.policy">rfc2109</stringProp>

We are on v12 and the benchmarking test is only available with v11.Do we have QlikView Hardware Benchmarking test for V12?





At the moment we do not have benchmarking package for QV12. We are working on it.
