Timing Questions

Postby PieceE » Tue Jun 17, 2014 2:31 pm

Afternoon.

I have 2 questions on the timing tests with eValid:

(1) when I look in the timing log, I see the elapsed times. For example, I see 60,231. Is this is seconds or milliseconds?

(2) what is the command to send a text that will be in the same line or line before the line showing the elapsed time?

I noticed the timing log does not show the URL of the page next to the elapsed time so I want evalid to send a phrase or text that is printed in the timing log showing the page URL before the elapsed time, e.g.

Thanks

Thanks for asking.

(1) Times are always msec (milliseconds) unless labeled as seconds. 60,231 is milliseconds, or 60.231 seconds.

Also, 60 seconds is the standard timeout value...so that may be the reson you see such a large nuber.

(2a) In a regular regression test, you could use ElapsedTime...it will send stuff to that one EventLog.

You might also want to try out the SaveRecord command...it will write local records (from one or multiple parallal scripts) and you can control the
format and the content of the message:

(2b) We assume you are trying to do a load test...and for that you have to recognize that while you CAN assign different EventLogs to each of the separate playbacks in parallel, that is a LOT Of data volume; so much so that you may interfere with the measurement (the I/O you generate there
will get in the way of the N browsers...)...

You may want to look at how we did this 1,000 BU example...
