Speed Simulation for mobile Vuser scripts
Speed Simulation models the behavior of a mobile network. This enables you to test applications, while taking into consideration end-to-end response time from device to server.
Three configuration options are available, allowing you to maximize the accuracy of your simulation:
- Maximum Bandwidth
- Standard Bandwidth
- Custom Bandwidth
You set the bandwidth using the Speed Simulation Runtime settings as described below.
|To access||VuGen > Runtime settings > Network > Speed Simulation|
User interface elements are described below:
|Use maximum bandwidth||
Vusers run at the maximum bandwidth that is available over the network. This option is provided in cases where you do not wish to emulate a specific network. This is the default setting.
|Use standard bandwidth||
Each network type has both a maximum and expected rate. The maximum rate represents the technology's best case performance rate while the expected rate more accurately reflects real time performance.
|Use custom bandwidth||
Sets a custom download and upload speed, defined in bits. You can set a single value or range for either the upload or download speed. A case where this option would be useful, is when you know the expected network speed from your cellular provider for a specific area.
Download speed:The download speed in bits, defined as a range or single value.
Upload speed:The upload speed in bits, defined as a range or single value.
