I'm trying to do a benchmark test on an Exchange server, and when I set the duration of simulation value in Loadsim to my desired 4 hours, it only runs for about 3 hours. Seems like there may be some issues with this setting, since when I set it for only a few minutes, it runs for about 3x as long as I set it. I don't see any errors in the loadsim.out file, and it seems to shut down normally.

I have the day time setting to 8 hours, and night time set to 0.

If anyone can provide any info on these settings, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Test environment is as follows:
loadsim 2003 is installed on it's own server.
both loadsim and exchange servers are Win2003 Svr SP1 Standard
Exchange Server 6.5 SP2
