Error description

  • The first time one selects a load test after opening the
    project, the test data is refreshed even if one had no
    intentions of looking at the Mapping tab.
    User is running a load test which makes use of underlying SQL
    data sources that are fairly complex in itself and hence takes
    several minutes to run. There are many such tests built in this
    way that comprise a Performance Test workload scenario.
    For various reasons, testers have had to check / update the
    config of these tests and when doing so, when clicked upon,
    each test refreshes the data, thus performing the underlying
    SQL and thus taking quite some time.
    Impact:
    This all adds up to > 2 hours effort and is quite illogical
    especially when because the time is being taken to pull data
    that you're not interested in.
    Proposed Solution:
    Only build the data when you click on the "Input Mappings" tab.
