Ants load stops sending request (CPU Maxes out)

Postby jb007 » Wed Feb 28, 2007 1:12 am

We have noticed an issue with ANTS load where in the application stops sending requests to the server and the CPU maxes out. We have noticed this happen during the second or third iteration of the running of the script.

Any reasons why this would happen? Any ideas to prevent this from happening?

We are using version 1.75 bld 4

Is this happening on distributed tests?

I've seen the load balancer flake out before, decide a host wasn't responding and send all of it's load to another host which can't cope, causing the whole test to bomb.

In that case, I think adding a second mediator to your topology could help.
