Do You Know These HTTP Status Codes as a Performance Test Engineer

Knowing the following application response status codes will help you to fix the issues promptly. Always we see these response status codes in performance testing tools Loadrunner, Jmeter and Neoload etc.

200 Status Codes:

Most the 200 status codes are success status codes. The server or application has successfully returned the requested page.
Sometimes we validate the pages by using these status codes. The function that we use here is web_get_int_property in loadrunner.

300 Status Codes:

These Status Codes are re-directional codes. The page has moved to a different address, for example, if you type the page will move to this is redirection.

There are two types:

301 redirection: The page you are looking no more exists and it is moved permanently to a different address.

302 Redirection: The page has been moved temporarily to a different address for many reasons like due to maintenance purposes.

Due to 301 and 302 redirection sometimes we will not able to find correlation values in Loadrunner.

404 Status Code: 

The page you are looking does not exist on this server. It's been removed or you might have entered a wrong URL.

500 Status Codes: 

The server has problems in processing the request and these are mainly server errors and not with the request.

File operations in loadrunner with examples

In this post I will explain how to capture a value from server response and save to a text file using vugen.
How to capture and save to text file using loadrunner:
First I have recorded the script using and then i searched for IBM. We will get 10 results. I have captured all the 10 values and saved to a file.

Sitescope Monitoring Tool Features and Monitors

Why Sitescope is called Agentless Monitoring Tool?
HP SiteScope monitors the application/infrastructure/server/operating system without installing any agent software on the system to be monitored. This feature makes the installation, usage and maintenance of Sitescope simpler when compared with the any performance monitoring tools like Diagnostics.
Sitescope Monitors:
Sitescope has also upgraded and changed drastically to meet the rapidly changing technologies and environments like virtualization and cloud computing. Using Sitescope we can monitor different web servers, application servers and database servers. We can also monitor operating systems Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, IBM AIX. It has more than 100 monitors including Weblogic, Websphere, SAP, SIEBEL, SNMP, LDAP, Network Monitor etc. HP SiteScope can also monitor cpu utilization, response time, disk space, and resource availability of a variety of host types and application platforms.
