I am buildiing a WAN optimization test plan. I want to script to automate and measure as much as possible without user intervention or having to use a stopwatch. I have created scripts for the following:
map Windows drive/copy file
download SharePoint document
download FTP file
Basically I start tshark (Wireshark command line capture), perform the task, stop tshark. tshark captures the entire transaction event and I can get specific time measurements from task start to finish.
I would also like to measure:
map Windows drive/open remote file (PPT, XLS, DOC)
Does anyone have any tips/tricks or scripts for automating and measuring these tasks? Any other network activity test scripts you have to share?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Software/Hardware used: MPLS WAN, SharePoint, Windows Server, MS Office, MS SQL
