In RPT, the script which is recorded using socket recording do not contain information in request and response format. The recorded script is in send and receive format. Information recorded in the send and receive format is basic in nature, meaning the information is either in binary, ASCII or Hex.

Socket recording script correlation in Rational Performance Tester (RPT):
Correlation of these values manually is difficult. The binary data need to be converted to ASCII format before the correlation is performed. Dynamic values are dependent on both the application type and the encoding format used in the application. Hence the correlation in binary format is not done.
Correlation of ASCII format is handled like normal manual correlation.
. The value is searched in the reponse content of the receive message.
. A reference is created, for the ASCII value.
. This is replaced in the send requests in the script.
Sometimes, hex codes are also considered for correlation. Here the hex codes in the receive format are manually converted to ASCII format and the relevant values are considered for reference. Once the reference is created, this is replaced in the send request, as done in ASCII format.
This topic covers the basic of correlation of scripts recorded using socket protocol, using RPT.
