Releasing virtual users from synchronization points

To record the response time of the system under test at different points, you can release virtual users either all together or in staggered intervals. You can release virtual users from synchronization points during a run.

Before you begin

Add synchronization points to a schedule. See Synchronizing users


  1. From the test editor, click Run Test. The execution report is opened either in the internal or external browser, and the state of the run is shown as Running.
  2. During the run, click Running > Manage Synchronization Points.
  3. Select the synchronization points to release, and click Release.
    Note: Typically, the virtual user wait time is based on the time that the last user arrives at the synchronization point. However, if a virtual user arrives after you manually release a synchronization point, the user wait time is instead based on the time at which the synchronization point was released.
