Monitor and graph types

Controller uses monitors to collect different types of data from a scenario as it is running. You can view the data collected by these monitors in real time, in the online monitor graphs in Controller.

After the run is complete, you can use Analysis to view the collected data from any monitor and generate more detailed graphs. You can also view a summary of the data in InfluxDB, and generate graphs using a visualization tool like Grafana.

Some monitors are set up automatically, while others require additional configuration. For details, see Set up a monitoring environment.

The online monitors and graphs are divided into the following categories:

Runtime

Displays the number and status of Vusers participating in the scenario, as well as the number and types of errors that the Vusers generate.

For details, see Runtime graphs overview.
Transaction

Displays the transaction rate and response times.

For details, see Transaction monitor graphs overview.
