Web Idle workload

The Web Idle workload models a Web browser user accessing the home page on the SUT. The script contains a one-minute wait, so an average user runs this script approximately 60 times an hour.

About this task

The measurements obtained by this test are:

  • Average response time at maximum capacity
  • Maximum number of Web Idle users supported

The resulting capacity metric for a Web Idle server is the maximum number of users that can be supported before the average user response time becomes unacceptable.

Note: You can review the Web Idle Workload script.
