  18. 18. CCoorrrreellaattiioonn  Generally in RPT, Correlation can be done automatically by the Tool itself. (Automatic Correlation)  We can also do Manual Correlation as follows : Go to Substitution site > select the value > Go to Previous response > Find that value in Previous Response > Right Click on that Value > Click on Create Reference > Enter a Name that should be unique > Click on Check and then Continue > Opens a window >Select values need to be correlated include Potential Matches >Finally Click on Substitute Checked Option  Manual Correlation can be done only when the tool cannot find some Correlated Values Training 18 Material on RPT 15-07-2014
  19. 19. WWhhaatt iiss DDaattaappooooll??  A Datapool provides variable data during test runs. Rational Performance Tester scripts use data from when the test was recorded. By associating a datapool with a test at runtime, you can substitute the variable data in the datapool for the data in the test. Training 19 Material on RPT 15-07-2014

EExxaammppllee ffoorr CCoorrrreellaattiioonn && DDaattaappooooll To help you work with correlated data, the test editor uses color coding and provides navigational aids: • When you click a page, you see a Test Data table for that page. By default, related datapool candidates are shown in green text on a light green background, values that are already associated with a datapool are shown in white text on a green background, and references are shown in blue text.  Test data table Training 24 Material on RPT 15-07-2014
  25. 25.  If correlated data is not displayed, right-click the table and verify that Show References is selected. To navigate directly to a page request containing correlated data, double-click a table row. To associate correlated data from this table with a datapool, click the row, click Substitute, and then click Select Data Source to open the Select Data Source window. You can also use the Test Data Sources view to make substitutions. In the test editor, right-click the Test Data table, and then select Link with Test Data Sources View. When you click a row in the Test Data table, the Test Data Sources view displays information about the selected substitution site.  When you expand a page, green text indicates page requests that contain datapool data or candidates. Blue text indicates page requests that contain references. Training 25 Material on RPT 15-07-2014

When you click a highlighted request, datapool candidates are highlighted in light green, data that is associated with a datapool is highlighted in dark green, and correlated data is highlighted in red. If you right-click a value for correlated data, as shown in the example, you can then click Go To to see its reference: Training 27 Material on RPT 15-07-2014

Is this the expected window? The following are the Major verification points are included in Test Perspective: Content Verification Point - searches for a specific string on a page. Page Title Verification Point - compares the page title against the recorded title. Response Code Verification Point - compares the HTTP code returned against the recorded code.  Response Size Verification Point - compares the page size returned against the recorded size.

You can also regenerate the results for viewing and analysis after a run. Performance has by default eight types of reports:  Overall Report--contains information on the progress of the state of the run and a bar chart showing the overall success of the run  Summary Report--displays the most significant data to the test run and lets you analyze the final or intermediate results  Page Performance--displays the average response of the slowest 10 pages in the test as the test progresses  Response vs. Time Summary--displays the average response trend as graphed through time  Response vs. Time Detail--displays the response trend as graphed through time  Page Throughput--presents an overview of the frequency of results being transferred per interval  Server Health Summary--presents an overall indication of how well the server is responding to the load  Server Health Detail--displays specific details for the 10 least successful pages Training 46 Material on RPT 15-07-2014
