Interpreting think times in Load test results RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 


    I am running Load tests for single and multiple users for my application.

    When there was no think time included in the web tests, the load tests showed too many failures. To ease out the server, and knowing that my application will have a lot to depend on the user's entries and inputs, I added some thinking times, generalized to text boxes and button clicks.

    I understand that Avg Test time and Avg transaction time will include the think times therefore will be more than the Avg Page time which will be equivalent to Response time. Avg Page time will not contain Think time. 

    I need to know how can we exclude the think times while interpreting the Avg. Test times in the Load test results? The values that we get in Avg. Test times are not accurate, because there is an external think time added. Is there a way where we can just look at the actual client-Server interaction in the results, ignoring the think times we used while web test creation or Load test execution?

    Suggestions appreciated. 

    Thanks.
