Test Initialization Logs

OctoPerf lets you review the process of initializing the load injector via a Test Initialization Logs panel:

Docker Logs modal

The test status goes through each of the following steps:

  1. CREATED: the test start operation is created,
  2. PENDING: OctoPerf's backend registered the start operation,
  3. SCALING: load injectors are being started (this operation may take a few minutes for large load test, a progress is displayed),
  4. INITIALIZING: virtual user scripts and files are copied to the injectors,
  5. RUNNING: the load test is running,
  6. FINISHED: the load test is done.


There are two more status:

  • ABORTED: when you click on the Stop button before the end pf the performance test,
  • ERROR: if the test failed to start.

The test may fail to start if you try to run to many concurrent users on and on-premise load injector or if a Cloud provider failed to deliver instances.
