Script Runtime Settings Overview

Before you run a performance test, you can configure the behavior of the Vuser scripts in the test using runtime settings. You can configure general settings and protocol-specific settings.

General Settings

After you record a Vuser script, you can configure its runtime settings. The runtime settings define the way the script runs, such as delay between actions, the number of times to repeat an action, and the level of logging.

Configuring runtime settings allows you to emulate different kinds of user activity. For example, you can emulate a user who responds immediately to the server, or a user who stops and thinks before each response. You can also configure the runtime settings to specify how many times the Vuser should repeat a set of actions.

Protocol-Specific Settings

Before replaying a Vuser script, you can configure its runtime settings. The runtime settings define the way the script runs, using settings that are specific for your particular environment.

Different combinations of runtime settings are available for each protocol. When you open the runtime settings, only the relevant nodes will be displayed.

For protocol-specific tips, see Protocol Specific Runtime Settings.

For task details, see How to Configure Runtime Settings.
