Evaluate a Test

How to evaluate a load test result

Generating a Test Report

When your load test has finished, you might want to render a report based on the gathered data and open it in the browser of your choice:

$> ./create_report.sh ../results/20200202-123400
$> firefox ../reports/20200202-123400/index.html

Reading a Test Report

The Load and Performance Test Report gives you all the information needed for a detailed analysis of a load test run. It provides several sections, each consisting of at least one table and one or more charts visualizing the graphic development of relevant measurements over time. The sections are: the Overview (which contains general information, load setup, requests per second, concurrent user and error charts), Transactions, Actions and Requests, Network (all about incoming and outgoing traffic, hosts, response codes etc.), Page Load Timings (page loading performance of real browsers - recorded only when using XltChromeDriver or XltFirefoxDriver to run the browser), Custom Timers and Custom Values, External Data, Errors and their stack traces, Events, Agents (which reports the resource utilization of each user agent), and details about the load test configuration.

You will get results and even reports out of your load test fairly quickly, but evaluating a load test and drawing the correct conclusions from the data needs some practice. For more information please see the Manual.
