Support Mixed Use of VU and VUH Licenses in a Load Test

A new option enables you to increase the license capacity for a load test by using a combination of VU and VUH license types.

If you select this option, the load test first of all uses VU licenses and when no more are available, then uses VUH licenses to reach the required number of Vusers.

For more details, see License Mode.

Unique Script Runtime Settings in a Load Test

Runtime settings for a script in a load test can now be set as either local or global.

When set as local, the settings are applicable to the script only in the specific load test and do not apply to the same script when it is included in other load tests.

For more details, see Runtime settings .

Executive Report (beta)

A new report, which is part of Deep Analysis (beta), provides a two page executive summary of a load test's results for a quick, high-level overview.

The report can be easily accessed from the load test's Runs tab.

Custom Network Profiles

You can create your own network profiles to apply to a load test, so that you can more accurately emulate your users' network conditions.

You can configure network conditions such as latency, packet loss and bandwidth.

For more details, see Network Emulations.

  • configure the run logic for a block.

These capabilities, combined with the option of saving a script's runtime settings locally, help you tailor a script for a specific load test.
