1. Narrowing search results by selecting products
If a general search provides too many results, reduce the scope of the search to one or more products. You can also click Add Products... under the search field to add more than one product. Click Done to apply your search scope. Only results from the version, product, or products that you selected are returned. The product you selected is shown on the search bar.
2. Other search tools
To find information more quickly, limit your search results by defining filtering options under Search Results. Only the search results that match your filter selections are returned. In addition to using products, you can filter your search results in the following ways:
Date range : See only topics added or changed in the last week, month, or year, or define your own range of dates.
Tasks : Limit results to specific task types, such as installing, migrating, or troubleshooting. Only documents that are defined as that task type are included in search results. Results might be incomplete if some documents have not been assigned task types.
Operating systems : Limit your search to documents that are relevant for the selected operating system and version.

A scenario where a web application was recorded using Rational Performance Tester (RPT).
After playback, data correlation errors were noticed in spite of manually creating the references. Upon analyzing the server responses, it was noted that some of the responses were sent in binary format.
Data correlation cannot be done on the response content if the data is in binary. The response should be in readable format to implement data correlation.
The below steps were followed and the script was re-recorded:
Open RPT Workbench -> Select 'Window' -> 'Preferences' -> Select 'Test' -> 'Test Generation' -> Select all the check boxes and record again.
The server responses after the above settings looked fine, however, the correlation errors still remained. Upon further investigation, it was noticed that the users ran into trouble at the "Home - Portal" page.
Instead of getting redirected to http
It was also noticed that the initial URL was rather odd, it had a jsessionid incorporated in it:
Usually the initial URL is rather generic, something like
The concern here is, Incorporating the jessesion (8AF54....) value in the URL for all the virtual users, the playback sessions for the multi-user playback are not fully differentiated by the server.
The issue was resolved by using a different URL without specific information like above.
