Is anyone else experiencing issues with latency with UFT 11.51?
Here are some areas where UFT 11.51 is running at least 50% slower than QTP 11.0:
-- ALM Lab Management remote execution -- The script is running super slow. Everything looks good on the machine. It's also a fully patched UFT 11.51 instance running on Win7 x64 with 2 gigs of memory and 2 vCPUs.
-- Frequent freezing and crashing, and sometimes copy and paste doesn't work.
-- The biggest hit in performance right now is working with the editor to create new procedures where the procedure library is fairly large (over 3000 lines). I see delays in characters typed being rendered on the screen, and I see the message that UFT 11.5 is getting low on resources after working on a large procedure library for an hour or so.
For point two I concur. A lot of freezing and crashing. And the problem here is that the feedback is minimum. Even if it weren´t it is so often that nobody can really be asked to analyze the logs. You paid for something that you need it to work...
For point three, I also try to have my tests as modular as possible and with less lines of code. Even like this the following happens. When you execute, UFT opens ALL tabs of the actions as if it thinks you are to edit them. This feature is SO wrong. If I want to open something I will - don´t worry UFT! Basically this is what gives me low resources...
But hey... here we are trying to survive in a cruel world ;)
Yes, actually. We experienced no latency with 11.00, and when we upgraded to 11.5x is when everything started slowing down. The longer the application is open the slower scripts run, slower access to the library, and eventually we get an error from UFT stating it is running out of resources. None of this happened with 11.
I have installed all the latest patches and still get this problem. The response so far from HP is that they cannot reproduce the problem, although they know it exists because I did a webex with them from my machine. This is really frustrating, it makes the tool almost unusable. I am sure many people will be throwing in the towel and moving onto a different tool that is not so problematic. HP support keep throwing the problem back at me and wasting hours of my time instead of testing theor own product out and fixing it. This is just one of a number of serious issues I have encountered with UFT.
For the other people out there, these actions might help to a small extent but will not resolve the issue fully.
(1) Split up large function libraries
(2) Add blank lines to the end of the function libraries
I am having the exact same problem as you. Debugging is a nightmare. When I put a breakpoint in my code, as soon as it hits it and I try to step through, UFT starts hanging. I found that closing the bottom windows (Local Variables, Watch, etc.) sometimes allows me to step through without problems.
There are also times that there is a delay between when I type something and when it actually appears. I often have to close the application entirely to get it to behave normally.
These problems started when we upgraded frmo QTP 10 to UFT 11.52.
It's a real pain and I hope that it gets sorted through because it makes debugging almost impossible.
