Pacing in OpenSTA
Can anybody explain the concept of Pacing in OpenSTA during Execution.
Re: Pacing in OpenSTA
When a script is recorded, wait statements are inserted between requests to account for user think time and client processing. This, plus delays in executing http requests determine the pace at which a script executes.
The workload definition for your tests should specify the mix of transactions and arrival rate. If the script (as recorded) runs faster then workload specification, additional wait statements can be inserted to alter the speed of playback to match the workload spec.
