Load Pattern Options in Staging Documents

  • 1.  Load Pattern Options in Staging Documents

    Posted 08-11-2015 04:56 PM

    Hi all,


    In CA DevTest, we have 5 load pattern options:

    ■ Immediately Ramp

    ■ Manual Load Pattern

    ■ Run N Times

    ■ Stair Steps

    ■ Weighted Average Pattern


    My general question:  can anyone explain to me which load pattern option is good to in what type of situation or scenario?


    My specific question: let's say I would like to run 5 instances with a delay in each of their execution. So for example, instance 1 start the test case right away, however instance 2 or 3 starts 3 secs after or even after the previous test case has run completely. How do I configure my staging document to match that requirement?


    Any suggestions, thoughts, or feedback?


    Any detail answers will be greatly appreciated.


    Thank you.
