Stuck in analyze the result of load testing RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi;

    I carried out load testing for 500 user and for 1.50 hours for inbuilt product. The result shows for first 50 minutes fine. Then after Response time and Requirement per sec. drops to 0 (zero). And still at the end of the run result shows 1/1 test pass.

    May i have some light on this? If ant referance to analyze result then please guide?

  • Loadtests don't "pass" or "fail", it's more a matter of reporting on whether they successfully completed or not.  In order to guage the success of a loadtest you'll always want to look at the results in more detail, in which case you'll see the errors and counters that will determine whether or not you consider it a pass or fail.  You can also set threshold values on various counters that will create errors when the value dips below or above the specified threshold.
