What factors do I need to consider to decide on my iteration count.
If my rampup configuration is (10 users every 10 secs) and my round trip time is 5 secs then can I say I need 2 iterations to keep the user alive for the second interval.
But If I have rampup and then steady state for long durations how to I calculate the number of iterations.
Thanks for you help
Thanks.This will help me to set the iterations count.
You will need to do the math to figure it out...
How long do you want the test to run?
How long does an iteration take?
How long will you delay between iterations in order to hit your "goal" transaction rate?
You can now calculate the number of iterations will you need to perform in order to keep the vuser running for the duration of the test.
Another alternative would be to setup the scenario to run for a specific time period rather than by the number of iterations.
Hope this helps!
