Crearting accurate \'block\' of code while recording Vu scripts
I would like to know the accurate way to define block while recording VU script inorder to make Performance reports more meaningful interms of functionality rather than commands.
For example, assume that I am recording a Save functionality for a web page where in user has to fill some details. I have followed the below procedure to measure how much time it would take for the 'Save' operation for varying number of users.
1.Enter all details.
3.Click on Save
4. Stop the block only when the data is saved & also the entire page downloads along with the saved information & with all the images.
I would like to know if this is the right time to stop the block or I should stop the block immediately after i click on the 'Save button.
In my opinion, I need to test the time taken for both Save as well as display of saved information to the user.
But what i observed is that the time taken for the entire page ( along with images) to download is quite large. Should this time for downloading images also be included in the transaction time.
I would be glad for your inputs. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

What you are doing is correct. For more detail see "User Experience, not Metrics, Part 5, What do I time and where do I put my timers" on www.perftestplus.com under upblications.
