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, running a steady load with 100 VUs will not guarantee a 100 VU load on the critical action because it is unpredictable how long the login will take. 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.
3. Right click and select Insert Object -> Insert Rendezvous then select Insert Before or Insert After.
