Capture POST Requests Using DiveTrace

Testing the performance of your site often requires going beyond simply measuring page load times at varying virtual user levels. More complex sessions generally involve not only getting data and presenting it to the user, but also posting data back to the server. If you are concerned that user registration, form completion or order submission may be taxing your application and degrading the user experience, DiveCloud now has the answer!


The Solution? DiveTrace POST

With DiveTrace you already have the ability to record and then replay sessions with DiveCloud. Now this simple process for creating complex sessions goes even further by capturing POST requests from any data entry form, submission or transactional workflow making your tests more like real user sessions. Just press RECORD, navigate to the pages you want to test, enter input values and let DiveTrace do the heavy lifting for you. All of your GET and POST requests will be recorded, available for editing and ready for testing. And, since POST data often requires unique or structured input values, you can now add expressions to your session data and pass a custom value with each POST.
