StresStimulus executes the currently loaded test. It simulates traffic contained in all test cases (or TC Groups) which have a Mix Weight property greater than zero. All configuration settings for the test, test cases, TC groups, and their respective objects are taken into account.
StresStimulus emulates physical users by instantiating VUs. A VU is a software object that is assigned to a specific browser type, network type and a test case (or TCGroup). In distributed tests, a VU is also assigned to a controller or one of the agents. During test execution, a VU continuously iterates through the test case, issues corresponding requests, waits for a corresponding server response, validates them and collects performance metrics.
Once the test is started, a new tab displaying Runtime Dashboard tab will open. It allows to monitor all aspects of test execution and performance metrics.
