1. Ranorex is a FUNCTIONAL UI TEST AUTOMATION TOOL, not a load test system. Ranorex only supports 1 script running on a system at a time. If you want 250+ users simultaneously, you will need to have 250+ systems (virtual machines would work) that each run one script at a time. This can be managed remotely by using something like Jenkins (or any other Continuous Integration tool).

2. I don't know if Ranorex works with Citrix personally.

3. That depends on what technology and level you are testing. If you are load testing services, SOAP UI is good. If you are load testing websites, you might find something by searching on the web (there are several). Ranorex will most likely NOT give you a recommendation because they only support Ranorex.

Again, just so it is clear, you can only run 1 Ranorex script at a time on a single system.


Jenkins can START several tests at the same time IF you set them up correctly. If there are enough systems available, Jenkins will start a test on each system that matches the criteria you give it.

Note that just because Jenkins starts them at the same time doesn't mean that they will all be synchronized. There is no mechanism for synchronization built into Ranorex. You could use other methods to achieve the same effect, but they will require you to create and code the tests for them.
