Load Criteria page

This wizard page enables you to select a load criterion for your goal and define appropriate load value ranges. For example, you can define the SLA to show the behavior of errors per second when there are less than 5 running Vusers, when there are between 5 and 10 running Vusers, and when there are 10 or more running Vusers.

Important information
  • General information about this wizard is available here: Service Level Agreement wizard.

  • This page is available only when defining the Average Transaction Response Time or Errors per Second SLAs.

  • In the next wizard step (Thresholds page), you will set different thresholds for each of these load value ranges.

The measurement selected for the SLA.

Load Criterion

The load criterion to consider when evaluating the goal.

  • None. Does not consider any load criterion.

  • Running Vusers. Considers the impact of the running Vusers.

  • Throughput. Considers the impact of throughput.

  • Hits per Second. Considers the impact of the hits per second.

For Average Transaction Response Time, you can also select:

  • Transactions per second. Considers the impact of the transactions per second.

  • Transactions per second (passed). Considers the impact of the transactions per second that passed the evaluation.

Load Values

Values of load to consider when evaluating the goal.

Value ranges must be consecutive, spanning all values from zero to infinity.

  • Less than. The lower range is always from 0 up to, but not including, the value entered here.

    Example: If you enter 5, the lower range is between 0 and 5, but does not include 5.

  • Between. The in-between ranges include the lower value of the range, but not the upper value. You can set up to three in-between ranges.

    Example: If you enter 5 and 10, the range is from 5 and up to, but not including, 10.

  • Greater than. The upper range is from the value entered here, and higher.

    Example: If you enter 10, the upper range is from 10 and up.
