Configuring All Day Workload

  1. Click Adjust Workload on the workflow bar. The Workflow - Select and adjust Workload dialog box appears.
  2. Select the workload model All Day.
  3. Select a user type and set the following values:
    1. max. VUsers: The maximum number of virtual users that can be run during the load test. This is the upper boundary for upcoming virtual user settings.
    2. Simulation time: Defines how long the load test will last.
    Tip: You can enter the time in the format hh:mm:ss or you can enter for example 1h12m30s. Silk Performer will automatically convert 1h12m30s into 01:12:30. If you just enter 7m, it will be converted into 00:07:00.
  4. Click Next. The All Day Workload Configuration dialog box appears.
  5. Select a user type from the list on the left side and configure intervals by entering values into the grid on the right side. Define a start and an end number of virtual users, as well as the duration for each interval. The chart on the top visualizes your settings.
    Note: When a load test was started, you can still change the number of virtual users for intervals that have not yet started, but you cannot exceed the maximum number of virtual users specified for the load test.
  6. Click OK. The Workflow - Assign Agents dialog box appears.
