Pages Downloaded per Second Graph

This graph shows the number of Web pages downloaded from the server during each second of the load test scenario run.

Like the Throughput graph, the Pages Downloaded per Second graph represents the amount of data that the Vusers received from the server at any given second. However, the Throughput graph takes into account each resource and its size (for example, the size of each .gif file, the size of each Web page). The Pages Downloaded per Second graph takes into account only the number of pages.

Purpose

Helps you evaluate the amount of load Vusers generate, in terms of the number of pages downloaded.

X-axis

Elapsed time since the start of the run.

Y-axis

Number of Web pages downloaded from the server.

Note

To view the Pages Downloaded per Second graph, you must select Pages per second (HTML Mode only) from the runtime settings Preferences tab before running your scenario.

Web Resources Graphs Overview

Example 1

In the following example, the greatest number of pages downloaded per second, about 7, occurred in the fiftieth second of the scenario run.

Example 2

In the following example, the Throughput graph is merged with the Pages Downloaded per Second graph. It is apparent from the graph that throughput is not completely proportional to the number of pages downloaded per second. For example, between 10 and 25 seconds into the scenario run, the number of pages downloaded per second increased while the throughput decreased.
