Monitoring a virtual user during RPT schedule execution- This is a demonstration of setting up the monitoring of a virtual user during schedule execution in IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT) V8.6. This is helpful if you want to check on the status of a virtual user independent of the result of the entire schedule execution. You can find more information about this activity in the Rational Performance Tester docu

The Rational Test Workbench family of products includes
These products have optional components and sometimes it's hard to figure out which package to down load to get everything needed for one of the products.
The components are available individually but they're also bundled into three offerings
RTW (Rational Test Workbench) Offering contains
RPTS (Rational Performance Test Server) Offering contains
RTVS (Rational Test Virtualization Server) Offering contains
Note that some of the individual products are available in two different offerings. In addition some of the optional components for a product requires obtaining two of the three offerings.
For example, to get Rational Performance Tester you'll want the Rational Test Workbench Offering and then the Rational Performance Tester Agent from either the RPTS or RTVS offering.
The complete set of four components for Rational Integration Tester are:
1. Rational Integration Tester (RIT)
2. Rational Integration Tester Agent (RITA)
3. Rational Integration Tester Platform Pack (RITPP)
4. Rational Tester Control Panel (RTCP)
It doesn't matter which offerings these components are obtained, as long as you get all four of them. For Rational Integration Tester customers I usually recommend getting the Rational Test Workbench offering which includes RIT, RITPP, RTCP, and then either the RPTS or RTVS component to get the Rational Integration Tester Agent.

Datapool values duplicated when schedule is executed using multiple agents in RPT- This video demonstrates how to troubleshoot the issue in IBM Rational Performance Tester 8.5 where datapool values are duplicated when a schedule is executed using multiple agents. You can find the documentation referenced in the video about datapool options here

IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT) is a tool for automated performance testing of web and server based applications.
It allows users to create tests that mimic user transactions between an application client and server.
RPT captures data at the protocol level and supports applications based on the below protocols:
During test execution, these transactions are replicated in parallel to simulate a large transaction load on the server. Server response time measurements are collected to identify the presence and cause of any potential application bottlenecks.
RPT test playback does not invoke the client of the application you are testing. RPT does load testing only on the server (no testing is done against the client).
