    Description

      Hi, 

      As Part of CI/CD Pipeline creation for Load Test execution, we are using Pipeline project type in Jenkins to plan to execute load test and integrates with Silk Performer. 

      In pipeline execution, we are invoking Silk Performer via command line and it executes the load test and stores the result files in the Jenkins Workspace directory defined for the project.

      Here we are facing a problem where the Overview report files html, .xml files are not getting created which  i need to parse and extract the results for plotting graph to represent the Avg, Min & maximum along with percentile response times.  

      Currently available results are detailedreport.xml which does not holds the average and percentile response times. However in freestyle project using Silk Performer plugin the required overview report files are getting created and stored. 

       

      Kindly advise on this situation.

          Hi,

          If I understand correctly, you are using Silk Performer via command line and not using Silk-Performer-Plugin, right?

          If that's the case Silk Performer run will not generate the Overview Report files, for that you have to run Silk Performance Explorer. You can see in help the command line arguments.

          Thanks,
          Mihai

          Hi Mihai,

          Yes, per your understanding I am executing the scripts via command line using the parameter PERFORMER.

          Could you please advise if we can execute the load test via command prompt using the Silk performance explorer?

          Thanks,
          Chandru.

          Hi Chandru,

          First you have to execute the test using Silk Performer and after that you have to use Silk Performance Explorer to generate de Overview Report from the results generated by Silk Performer, from the TSD file.

          PerfExp.exe /TSD:"path_to_tsd_file.tsd" /EXPORTOVR:"path_to_location\OverViewReport.html" /NOGUI /EXIT

          For more command line attributes you should check the help.

          The tsd file should be the une with "m@".

          Thanks,
          Mihai

          hi Mihai, 

           

          Just wondering will the above Perfexp.exe command will also generate OverviewReport.xml as well?
