Monitoring a test run

Long-running tests require continuous monitoring so that they run as expected and provide correct results. Due to various reasons, sometimes the tests start failing but continue to run till it completes. In such cases, you might want to adopt different techniques such as changing the number of virtual users, changing the rate of the run, or changing the log level to achieve the desired results. You can also stop the test run.
