Website URLs List Import¶
The quickest way to create a Virtual User is by feeding OctoPerf with your website URL.
Create Virtual User: Website URLs¶
Simply enter the URLs you want your Virtual User to visit:
You need to enter valid URLs and include the protocol (I.e. https://octoperf.com).
If you select 'Parse response HTML to extract sub-pages?', OctoPerf automatically parses the HTML of the given URLs to extract other pages. So you may only need to fill in the homepage of your WebSite.
You can Copy/Paste a list of URLs (one URL per line) into the URL field to import multiple URLs at once.
This way to create a VU is OK only for static websites or webservices. You should not execute real load tests with Virtual Users generated this way and expect meaningful results!
Creating a VU using a list of URLs will not let you simulate realistic behaviors: it's quite hard to extract and re-inject dynamic parameters without recorded requests/responses.
