This filter allows defining a time period in the test to save. The purpose of the filter is to reduce the time span for analysis; the start and end date of the filtered test are readjusted to take into account the filter period.
This filter has two settings:
Start date sets the start date for the time period to be saved in hh:mm:ss format.
End date sets the end date for the time period to be saved in hh:mm:ss format.
Information: The hh:mm:ss date format is detailed as follows: - hh = hours from 00 to 23. - mm = minutes from 00 to 59. - ss = seconds from 00 to 59.
The start and end dates for the filtered test results generated are calculated based on the selected time period.
Time period selection wizard
To select the time period for the test to be saved
If it is not already enabled, enable time period filtering by checking the appropriate Enable box.
Click the selection button.
The wizard displays a graphic view of the test, including graphs for user load, average response times and errors.
To set the start or end date for the filtered test
At the bottom of the panel, click either the Start or End radio button.
Place the mouse on the graph at the required start or end point, then click the left mouse button while holding down the CTRL key.
To validate the new dates, click on the OK button.
In a test with a peak load policy, it may be useful to concentrate on one particular load peak. This filter reduces the time frame to be analyzed to a single peak.
