I have a requiremnet in terms of Incremental Test strategy.
I am doing Performnace testing and i have set the test to run in incremental fashion with the following details :
Starting Vusers : 10Vusers - Incremental Intreval : 60Sec
Incrementing Vusers : 10Vusers Maximum Vusers : 400
Time to run - 90 min.
According to the above strategy,every 60 min 10 vusers will be introduced and the peak load is achieved at 40 min.
How ever, wen i run the above strategy, I can see the Vusers repeating the Iteration and the Server hit count will be more than the Vuser count. I.e. Say at 20min - i can see ~ 400 hits on login page- but the expected is 200 hits, as the Vusers repeat once they finish.
Can any one let me know a strategy were i can have only those Vusers running according to my schedule and it should not repeat. HOw ever, after the peak load is achieved they can repeat in loop ( this is req of my PM [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img], which im not able to figure out )
Please note that TestComplete can execute only a single load test at a time. Therefore, you will not be able to increase the number of virtual users dynamically during the test execution. However, you can repeat the same test multiple times and increase the number of users before every iteration from your script.
