Payload Configuration – Vulcan Manager
You can define the application-layer content in the payload configuration panel by expanding the test scenario tree and clicking either Download or Upload depending on your traffic direction mode.
Payload Pattern defines how the payload content looks. It provides four modes: Increment, Random, LongRandom, and Custom.
Length Type defines the length of the application-layer payload. Infinite means that the application- layer content is large enough so that there will always be payload from the application layer during the test. The Finite means that the application layer has limited content to send to the lower layer, you can define the length in the Patter Length field.
The example below will limit the application- layer content to 10000 random bytes. As soon as these 10000 bytes are transmitted by the lower layer, the application layer will stop generating traffic.
PAYLOAD IN TRANSACTION SCENARIO
You can define the application- layer content in the payload configuration panel by expanding the test scenario tree and clicking either the Request or Response.
In the Payload Editor, you can freely import or remove the content. The length the of the total application- layer content will be automatically calculated.
