Performance Bench Report¶
Once you have reached this section, it means that you have:
- Designed one or more realistic virtual users,
- Built a scenario which simulates your customer devices and network conditions,
- Launched a test.
Now that the test is running, the most interesting part of the test is starting: analyze the results, and spot the performance bottlenecks.
The following sections describe how to create custom bench reports. There is no limit on the number of graphs or metrics you can put inside the report.
The Bench Reports section is a Live view of your test allowing you to:
- Analyze test metrics like Response Time or Throughput,
- Drill-down to performance bottlenecks and point them out,
- Build comprehensive test reports.
All the operations described below can be done while the test is running. Any modification done is saved automatically.
