5. Using the proxy recorder¶
The recorder has three plugins: for HTTP, WebDAV and for PostgreSQL.
To start it, run tsung-recorder -p <PLUGIN> start, where PLUGIN can be http, webdav or pgsql for PostgreSQL. The default plugin is http.
The proxy is listening to port 8090. You can change the port with
To stop it, use tsung-recorder stop.
The recorded session is created as
~/.tsung/tsung_recorderYYYMMDD-HH:MM.xml; if it doesn’t work,
take a look at
During the recording, you can add custom tag in the XML file, this can be useful to set transactions or comments: tsung-recorder record_tag "<transaction name='login'>''
Once a session has been created, you can insert it in your main configuration file, either by editing by hand the file, or by using an ENTITY declaration, like:
<!DOCTYPE tsung SYSTEM "/usr/share/tsung/tsung-1.0.dtd" [ <!ENTITY mysession1 SYSTEM "/home/nniclausse/.tsung/tsung_recorder20051217-13:11.xml"> ]> ... <sessions> &mysession1; </sessions>
For PostgreSQL, the proxy will connect to the server at IP 127.0.0.1 and port 5432. Use -I serverIP to change the IP and -P portnumber to change the port.
5.2. HTTP and WEBDAV¶
For HTTPS recording, use http://- instead of https:// in your browser
New in 1.2.2: For HTTP, you can configure the recorder to use a parent proxy (but this will not work for https). Add the
option to enable parent proxy, and use -I serverIP to set the IP and -P portnumber to set the port of the parent.
