    Timeout value problem in opensta

    Hi Bernie,


    In opensta we try two type of load test for declared timeout=360000 and 120000 but its not affecting response time and result of load test.why opensta its not supporting timeout value.

    With cheers,
    learnall.

    Where did you make the change for timeout (what file)? And what makes you believe that OpenSTA is ignoring your request to increase the timeout value?

    Re: Timeout value problem in opensta

    Hi Bernie,

    We changed the timeout value in the Testexecuter_web.ini as 360000(6 minutes).
    After the above changes, we executed test with 200 users and our test completed after 30 minutes. We got the timeout socket error in the error log file. But the response time for particular timers was exceeding the timeout value what we set in the testexecuter.

    Can you clarify this? whether timeout value is working properly in opensta?

    Ok, as far as I remember time outs are not exact. The test executor checks periodically (every TIMEOUT_VALUE seconds I think) for timeouts, then sleeps. So theoretically, you could see timeouts almost double the value for timeout.

    Lets say timeout is 60000 (60 seconds), the test executor wakes up and checks all threads to see if any have been waiting for more than timeout_value seconds, if so, it signals the script via the timeout error. if not it sleeps for timeout_value milliseconds. Now, one second after it runs you execute a long running get/post. After you are waiting 59 seconds, the test executor does it scan and misses you because you have not timed out yet. At its next cycle, if you request has not completed, then your script will be signaled. Total wait time 60+59 seconds.
