Rendezvous are points in a test case that are used to synchronize Virtual Users to carry out tasks at the same moment. This is used to order to create a simultaneous load on the server at specific points in the test case.
For example, imagine a test case that logs in, performs a critical action and logs out. It is required to test the critical action under a 100 VU load. However, r unning a steady load with 100 VUs will not guarantee 100 VU load on the critical action because each VU must first login. Since it is unpredictable how long the login will take, it can't be guaranteed that all 100VUs will execute the critical action at the same time. In these situations you can add a rendezvous before the critical action to have each VU wait after its login for all other VUs to login.
To add a rendezvous, do the following:
1. Go to the Build Test Case node.
2. Select the object where you want to insert the rendezvous after.
3. Right click and select Insert Rendezvous .
