1. Pausing the Test. You can pause and resume the test by clicking on the corresponding buttons.
2. Skip pending requests. The Skip button allows the load engine to abandon all pending requests instead of waiting for the arrival of the corresponding server responses. Abandoned requests are counted as timeouts. Skipping pending requests allows the load engine to abandon slow requests and issue the remaining ones. This feature is helpful when the user wants to complete the test that seems to be "frozen" because some of the (pending) requests are causing a slow server response.
Note: Skip does not work on Agents.
3. Changing VUs during the test run. You can adjust the VU count on demand. That allows controlling the load more granularly. To add VUs during the test:
a. Set the VU adjustment value.
c. In a multi-test case test, to assign the new VUs to a specified test object, select the test object from the list.
Note: Starting from v5.1, VU adjustments are available in distributed testing. StresStimulus will automatically determine which load generator to launch the new VUs on based on the mix weight of each agent.
4. Test Completion. After the test completion criteria are met, the test will stop automatically. A test can be stopped manually before its completion. It can be necessary for the following situations:
Press the right arrow (a) on the stop button to bring up the available options to terminate the test:
