    How to test QlikView performance?

    Doron Reichenberg

      Hello,

      Do you have experience with running performance tests for QlikView server? We would like to run and test scenarios of concurrent users performing queries according to a pre-defined scenario. The problem is that we couldn't utilize QlikView to work with LoadRunner, for example. It seems like we cannot record and run the scenario using the ActiveX plug-in or the Ajax ZFC becasue of the QlikView authentication method. Any suggestions?

                      Here are some guidles (credit to Alex Braslvasky, Retalix):

                      Settings are involved in the process:

                       

                      1. Disable Named User CALs for Anonymous Access.

                      2. Configure QlikView Server Authorization/Authentication (Found in QEMC on the System/Setup/ Security/ tab.)

                      3. QlikView Web Server Ajax access (Found in QEMC on the System/Setup/Ajax/ tab.)

                      4. Anonymous user addition to the document.

                       

                      To Disable Named User CALs set next options:

                      In QEMC on the System/Licenses/QlikView Server/Client Access Licences(CALS)/General

                       

                      Set identification : Machine Name

                      Turn on "Allow license lease"

                      Turn on "Allow dynamic CAL assignment"

                       

                       

                      Anonymous Access Using DMS Authorization

                      QEMC on the System/Setup/ Security/ tab

                      QlikView Server Authorization: "DMS"

                      QlikView Server Authentication: "Always Anonymous" or "Allow Anonymous"

                      on System/Setup/Ajax/ tab QlikView Web Server Ajax access: "AlwaysAnonymous" = selected

                       

                      Restart QlikView server.

                       

                      In QEMC on the Documents/User Documents/Authorization tab for the document add the Anonymous user using the "Edit User" dialog.

                      Hope it helps...

                          Hi Doron

                          What method/client did you use when you did your scripting: IE Plugin, Java or AJAX ?

                          Thanks

                            Hello,

                            On the LoadRunner side, did you have to use a AJAX Click and Script protocol or did a normal Click and Script work? Or, did you have to use some other protocol?

                            Thank you,

                                i was using web ajax client, which will be sending the requests through http , so i was able to record it normal way using http:// protocol.

                                there were some settings that i followed to over come a errror that i was getting as " no connection " error. i followed these settings and little more than this , not sure wat i added for CALs for each qvw file in the webserver.
