How does ANTS Simulate Virtual Clients?

Postby dhani43 » Fri Mar 02, 2007 7:49 am


I'm quite new to ANTS Load and have explored only some of the options available.

I did a small test, using the state info, i tried logging into a website. I simulated for 5 clients while i used only 2 rows of data in State Info.

Even When i gave wrong Usernames/passwords in State Info, the Tool gave more or less identical results. Thereby, raising the question of how ANTS LOAD simulates the virtual clients
Can anyone explain how this could happen? Your help would be much appreciated.

Hello Guru,

Hard to say for sure. What may happen is that your particular web application has a custom error page, so the test may be generating errors, but the server is returning the error pages as HTTP 200 OK instead of 403 forbidden, for example.

The only way to find out would be to use Me.LogToFile(WebClient.HttpRequest.Content) after the request and look at the actual web pages being returned by the server.
