Server.Load test parameters

Before you run a Server.Load test, you can modify any of these parameters, which are located on the Test Parameters tab.

Table 1. Test Parameters



Max No. of Users

Enter the number of simulated users. Default is 1. Maximum value for this setting is 1500.

Note: To verify that a script is running properly, run the test the first time with only one simulated user.

If you are running the test on multiple clients, increment the value of the Max No. of Users parameter when you run the test on each client.

The client should not run at anything higher than 75% to 85% CPU. If the client is running at 100%, reduce the number of users.

Script Loop Count

Enter the number of times the script runs per simulated user. Default is 1.

To calculate total iterations, multiply Script Loop Count by Max. No. of Users.

Note: For long-duration tests, enter a large value, and specify No Time Limit in the Test Time Parameter field.

If a test uses the ScriptIterationLimit script variable, set both the variable and the Script Loop Count to the same value.

Thread Creation Interval (sec)

Enter the rate, in seconds, at which simulated users are created. Default is 1

To calculate total ramp-up time, multiply Thread Creation Interval by Max. No. of Users.

Starting Thread No.

Enter the thread number that will start the test. Default is 1.

Note: If you use multiple clients in a test, you must stagger the starting thread number -- for example, client 1 starts at thread 1; client 2 starts at thread 101, and so on.

Test Time Parameter

Choose one:

  • No time limit (default) -- To run the test indefinitely.
  • Run between two time periods -- To run the test between Start and Stop times that you enter in standard format (1:00 PM) or military format (13:00).
  • Specify Total Test Time -- To run the test for a specific number of minutes.
