Setting the Browser Simulation Parameters

Many characteristics of the simulated browser can be set by the user:

First, you need to note that Webserver Stress Tool simulates a browser only from a “server’s point of view” (e.g., sending the requests, etc.), but does not simulate the rendering on the client’s screen or the execution of client side scripts. Thus Java applets, Javascripts etc. are not executed (running scripts of many users would also put excessive load on the client's CPU).

For example a scripted inclusion of a banner ad is not processed and thus the image request is not sent to the server. The implication is that the performance effect of such client side portions of the web application cannot be measured by this webserver loading/stressing technology.

Also any requests that are generated through Javascripts will also not be processed, use the Custom URL Script to add the these URLs manually.
