RE: AVTS 4.0.4 - Record/Playback Feature
Funny, when I read
you last mail I was going to place a bet it stopped within a few ballots.
It looks like it dies after a certain number of "events".
I spoke too
soon, it stopped at 75. I will start it up again, and see if it stops at
75 once more.
ballots, and still going strong!!!!
this is good. You say it does not break at any consistent
point. Do you mean it can stop in a different place for a given
test script, or that it varies in an unpredictable way from
One thing to
do just to get ahead of the curve a little would be to create a "working"
test with a huge repeat and let that run this weekend. This will at
least let me know if we have a leak to fix in addition to our playback
issues. The ballot station operates largely the same whether the
test is with one ballot or eight.
I will try to
come up with a way for you to vary the repeat as part of fixing
back to trying the Record/Playback Feature. I have made up several
different scripts with 6 ballots. The first script runs all 6
ballots only 1 time through, and this works fine. I have tried 2
other scripts of 6 ballots, 1 with a repeat of 15, and another with a
repeat of 90. Both have failed, the 15 repeat stops after the 3rd
ballot, and the 90 repeat stops at the summary page of the 2nd
you can see from the thread below, I did the 1 ballot test with a repeat
of 16 and that worked fine. It seems to be a combination of number
of ballots & number of loops. However, it does not break at
any consistent point.
were able to create 1 script, and then able to change the number of
loops, without having to record the script again, I might be able to
narrow it down a bit, but either way there is a problem of some
educated guess is that it is a fixed buffer. It will work right
up to 6, any repeat. Would that be sufficient for
did a 1 ballot test with a repeat of 16. This works
fine. I will keep continuing to increase the number of ballots
until I can get it to break again.
*Exactly* the same result, or does it fail at different
points? If you limit your test to say 6 or 7 ballots,
does it then work okay?
I have tried it 4 times, all with the

created a script for voting 8 different ballots, each ballot
contains 5 pages, and I have set it up to repeat 64
times. However, when the script gets to the 7th

it gets to the final Summary Page it just stays there until
