Once again, our friends at IBM Rational User Education have released some great videos to help you with integrating DOORS and RTC, as well as discussing some advanced functions and features in the DOORS 9.x versions. Both series are a bit of a different style video than you may be used to from support as they are presented by product SMEs in a webinar / discussion style.
Note: We've only embedded the first video so as to not overwhelm this post with embedded youtube players.... for the other three, you'll need to click through the title links to enjoy.

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).

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.
