Initializing Workload Settings

Silk Performer allows you to specify the same workload settings for multiple user types at a time.
  1. Click Adjust Workload on the workflow bar. The Workflow - Select and adjust Workload dialog box appears.
  2. Click Initialize. The Initialize Workload Settings dialog appears.
  3. Select a Workload model from the list.
  4. If you want to define one specific value for all user types, use the check boxes: Enable the respective check box and enter the value. To define varying values, enter these directly in the table.
  5. Click OK to save your changes.
Note: The Initialize Workload Settings dialog also allows you to define a duration for the Ramp-up Time and Ramp-down Time. In contrast, the Select and adjust workload dialog allows you to define an increase or decrease value per time. Example for defining the duration: Gradually stop all virtual users within 2 minutes. Example for defining a decrease value: Stop 2 virtual users every 10 seconds.
Tip: The Initialize Workload Settings dialog also allows you to copy and paste values from and to spreadsheet programs like Microsoft Excel. To do so, use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.
