Monitoring and Analyzing Load Test Results

Real Time

Check “Real Time Results” for a graphical view of the test in progress, from the Controller perspective.

See your rUsers' status as they progress through connected, waiting, playing, and completed stages.  Click status icons to drill down rUser by rUser for up-to-the-minute performance results, including where they are in their current scenario and screenshots of any errors they have encountered.

View Load Test Execution Process

While a test is running, you can view the execution process through rUserManager.  Maximize the rUserManager window to see each rUser session executing scenarios in real time.

Important: Closing the rUserManager during the test would end scenario playback and disrupt the test. It is OK to minimize the window.

Note: The VStation is what will perform the playback of the scenario during the load test. The VStation is programmed to start automatically once the rUser is logged in. Please refer to the AppLoader User Guide document for more information.

Tip: Some issues that can be traced back to the VStation include: the rUsers not playing the scenario, the AppLoader Controller not displaying any rUsers connected, or displaying the incorrect number of rUsers that are connected.  If these issues occur, check that the VStation is running.

Follow these steps for troubleshooting VStation:

1. Open Task Manager.

2. Under the ‘Processes’ tab look for VStation.exe.

3. If the process isn’t running, open the Injector folder and click on the Start VStation file.

4. If the process needs to be restarted, right click on it from the Task Manager list and select ‘Stop’. Then open the Injector folder and click on the Start VStation file.

The VStation Log file can be found here:

Analyze Load Test Results

After a load test has completed, you can analyze the final results from the “Test Analysis” page. An important part of the load testing process is viewing and studying the results of a test.

You can get response time graphs and reports, and export complete test data and graphs into Excel format. See the timing of your transactions, scenarios, and how your rUsers performed.
