Stopping a Virtual User at Runtime
Stopping a specific Virtual User instance at runtime brings a lot of flexibility when running a test, in addition to stopping or canceling the number of Virtual Users in a population as described in Change the number of Virtual Users at runtime.
This function makes it possible to stop one or more troublesome Virtual Users without impairing the whole test. For example, when a particular Virtual User instance is not initialized properly, and the case is not anticipated in the design, the Virtual User may keep trying to execute its actions endlessly, causing many irrelevant errors for the test result.
When a Virtual User is selected, the Stop Virtual User function is available:
from the Runtime Errors tab with a click on the Stop button, and
from the Runtime Users tab:
with a click on the Stop button,
with a click on the Follow button to display the Follow the Virtual User dialog box which includes the Stop Virtual User button.
The Stop Virtual Users dialog box includes the options:
Apply the stop policy enforces the stop policy on the selected Virtual User, as defined for its Population. For more information about the stop policy, see Population advanced parameters.
Stop immediately cancels the selected Virtual User from the test in progress.
Information: One or more Virtual Users can be stopped simultaneously with the Stop button. However, in the Runtime Users tab, the Follow button is available only when one Virtual User is selected.
To stop a Virtual User
In the Runtime Errors tab or in the Runtime Users tab, select a Virtual User.
To open the Stop Virtual Users dialog box:
Click Stop, or
In the Runtime Users tab, click Follow, then Stop Virtual User.
Apply the stop policy to use the stop policy defined for the Population the Virtual User belongs too, or
Stop immediately to stop the Virtual User from the test in progress.
