Runtime overview

The Runtime overview tab displays the following statistics:

Name

Description

Scenario Name

Name of the scenario currently running

Start Time

Scenario start date

Elapsed Time

Time elapsed since test started

Total Hits

Total number of hits since test started

Total Throughput

Total number of megabytes received from server

Total Errors

Total number of errors since test started

Total Alerts

Total number of alerts since test started

Total Users Launched

Total number of Virtual Users launched since test started, including those currently running.

Total Iterations Completed

Total number of times when the Actions Container has been executed since test started.

Average Response Time (requests)

Average response time for HTTP requests since test started

Average Response Time (pages)

Average response time for web pages since test started

Average Hits/sec.

Average hits/sec. since test started

Average Throughput

Average throughput since test started

Current Response Time (requests)

Average request response time for HTTP requests over the last second

Current Response Time (pages)

Average request response time for web pages over the last second

Current Hits/sec.

Average hits/sec. for HTTP requests over the last second

Current Throughput

Average throughput over the last second

Current Users Count

Number of Virtual Users currently running

Graphs

The main statistics are plotted in real time: number of Virtual Users currently running, error rate (errors/sec.), number of alerts, hits/sec. and average request response time.

Controller

Two metrics monitor the Controller activity:

Controller CPU Load: CPU load for the machine hosting the Controller.

Controller Memory used: Memory used, expressed as a percentage of the memory allocated to the Controller program.

Load Generators

Monitors the Load Generators activity:

If the CPU Load or Memory Used figure regularly exceeds 90%, this indicates that the Load Generator is overloaded. Run the test with fewer Virtual Users or a longer think time, or use additional Load Generators.
