Make my playback tests more realistic

Postby JHaymer » Thu Nov 10, 2016 11:35 am

Morning.

I want to have my playbacks be as realistic as possible, but all do the same thing.

Is there a way to vary the wait times in the playback to increase the realism of the tests?

Thanks

Very reasonable request JHaymer.

Even though multiple eValid playbacks running in parallel will naturally get out of sync with each other, it is still better to make the tests as real as possible.

The correct way to do this is to use the WaitRandomUniform command.

Here is the format of the command:

WaitRandomUniform lo-value hi-value

At playback time, this command waits a random number of milliseconds using a uniform distribution random number between the lo-value and the hi-value.

You have to experiment with the right values here -- to achieve the right degree of "realism" that you want.

Let us know if this works out for you.
