is operational or not
Check whether you are running the actual script/scenario in right project/domain
Have you checked-in the updated script in Performance Center?
Validate the Runtime Settings in PC
Validate the Run Logic
Validate the Iteration pacing and think time
Validate the Proxy Settings
Validate the WinInet/Socket Replay
Validate the Authentication Settings
Validate the Browser Settings
Validate the Cache Settings
Validate the Parameter file and other parameters.
Check whether the
function is present at the top of your script.
Check whether the actual user credentials has access to the application under test (AUT).
In few instances, we use test credentials in the script, if those credentials expired or not authorized, script will fail in Controller.
Validate whether the user credentials added to the application user group or distribution list.
Some application will have additional layer of security where the user credentials must be added to security group, distribution list or database.
Validate whether the application uses third party or in-house authentication/authorization layer.
Make sure that you are using different machines for Load Generator and Controller.
Make sure that your application is not being used by some other team. Block your testing window ahead of your testing.
Make sure that you are not running the tests during maintenance window.
Validate whether all the correlations have been handled in the script.
Disable the logging during the load test. Due to heavy logging controller might go out of memory during testing.
Validate the HTTPS certificates are properly installed and not expired.
Perform the scenario manually to make sure the functionality is working fine.
Check all the web_reg_find and other checkpoints have been updated. You can leverage web global function as well.
Validate all the instances of your web/app/database servers are up or not. Also check load balancer and any other third party servers are up or not.
