Executing RPT and RFT tests simultaneously on the same machine
Can you execute tests on IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT) and IBM Rational Functional Tester (RFT) simultaneously on a single machine?
Since the combination of RPT 7.3 and Rational Robot 7.0.1 causes 100% CPU spikes when running on the same playback machine (which is why it is not supported), you need to know if simultaneous testing with RPT and RFT on a single machine would cause similar issues.
Yes, RFT and RPT scripts can be executed simultaneously on a system successfully.
The co-existence of RFT and RPT has been tested in following environment.
- Windows 7 OS machine with 8Gb RAM and Processor speed 2.19Ghz .
- RPT version 8.5
- RFT version 8.3
Note: As a best practice, IBM Rational still recommends RFT and RPT to be installed in different package group even this combination works fine.
