Disabling Test Script Services

Implementing Tests as Suites

VU Connect
Connect environment variables pertain to VU test scripts that record
HTTP and socket protocols. They control the number of times a test script retries to
connect to a server and the delay between retries.
VU HTTP
HTTP environment variables pertain to VU test scripts that record the
HTTP protocol. These variables let you emulate line speed for http and socket
requests. They also enable an HTTP test script to play back successfully if the
server responds with data that does not exactly match what was recorded--for
example, if the server responds with partial data, if the response was cached, or if
the test script was directed to another server during playback.
VU Reporting
Reporting environment variables pertain to VU test scripts. These
variables let you set how to check for an SQL unread row results and set the
maximum number of bytes to receive in an SQL response.
VU Response Timeout
Response time-out environment variables pertain to VU
test scripts that record HTTP, SQL, IIOP, or socket protocols. These variables let
you set the time-out for a VU emulation command, scale timeouts, and set the
action to take if a time-out occurs.
Note:
For more information about TSS environment variables, see the
VU Language
Reference
or the Rational Test Script Services manual for your language.
Disabling Test Script Services
You can disable Test Script Services during a suite run. Disabling Test Script Services
lets you reduce runtime overhead. Disabling also lets you create a test script that uses
all Test Script Services and then, based on what is enabled or disabled, test only
functional-related or performance-related services.
By default, no Test Script Services are disabled. To disable Test Script Services:
1
Open a suite, and then click
Suite > Edit Settings.
2
Click in the
TSS Environment Variables
column.
3
Choose the
TSS
tab in the TSS Environment Variables dialog box.
