Enable real-time measures

When checked, real-time measure data generation is enabled globally for all virtual users across the entire test. This setting overrides preset profile settings.

When unchecked, real-time measure data is disabled for all virtual users globally across the test. This setting overrides preset profile settings.

When checked and grayed out, real-time measure data is generated only for those user types who have this setting activated in their corresponding profiles. In this state a tooltip displays information about the user types for which real-time measures have been enabled.

Note: This check box automatically changes its state when the real-time measure data profile setting option of any virtual user changes.

Note: This setting affects only measures that are configured to provide measurements in real-time through the MeasureSetOption function and the MEASURE_OPT_REALTIME parameter.
