During browse on my website through Paessler URL Recorder, POSTDATA requests are not recorded for all POST HTTP requests. If POSTDATA cannot be recorded, can i manually used Header and Body of POST request available in my browser to format POSTDATA files and use them in Webserver Stress Tool?

Thanks!

Below an example of Header and Body:

Hello Olivier,

I'm much afraid that the webserver stress tool comes as is and without any support. We would be happy to assist you, but I'm not familiar with the tool myself. Maybe another user of the Webserver Stress Tool can guide you in the right direction.

Best regards, Felix

Thanks for your message. For another users of the Webserver Stress Tool: I would like to have an example of the file content where POSTDATA must be present. In Admin guide of WST, only explanations about the location and filename, but not about the how must be the content :

POSTDATA: … You can also use the content of a file for the POSTDATA by entering the filename with “@” at the beginning and at the end, e.g. @[email protected] Note: This file must reside in the folder of the webstress8.exe file.

Thanks!

I found a solution to exclude postdata files, used directly URLs with POSTDATA in WST :

Example:

http://myweb.site/sites/mypage?CONTENTofBODY
