Network Virtualization integration
Mobile Center integrates with Network Virtualization (NV), enabling you to test how various mobile networks affect your application's performance on different mobile devices. You can:
- Impose network impairments and constraints on your testing environment.
Emulate real-world network conditions, including bandwidth, latency, and packet loss.
- Test your application behavior under varied network conditions, observe if the transactions complete successfully, and determine transaction response time.
- Analyze performance results and view recommendations for improving application performance.
Integrate with Network Virtualization
|Install and configure Network Virtualization||
Install and configure Network Virtualization.
|Set up Network Virtualization integration in Mobile Center||
You configure the Mobile Center server to work with Network Virtualization to enable Network Virtualization functionality on testing tools that are using Mobile Center.
|Define NV profiles||Network Virtualization profiles are a set of network conditions to use during test runs. You can use one of the built-in profiles, or configure new profiles in NV Test Manager.|
|Run tests with Network Virtualization||
Configure your tests to use Network Virtualization, based on NV profiles. When you start your test, Network Virtualization applies the network conditions to the network traffic of the mobile device where the test is running. When the test is complete, network emulation stops.
While a test runs, Network Virtualization captures the mobile application traffic and saves it on the Network Virtualization machine.
After the test has completed, you can download and view the NV Analytics / NV Insights report in NV Test Manager.
|Perform exploratory testing with Network Virtualization||
Using Mobile Center, you can perform exploratory testing with Network Virtualization to check your app's behavior on mobile devices.
You can then download the analysis results in the NV Analytics / NV Insights report, or as a HAR (HTTP Archive) file for testing with StormRunner Load or LoadRunner.
