Page counters

These counters provide information about page attempts, page hits, response time, response success, and verification points. Some counters produce an aggregate value, where the values for several pages are rolled up into one value; others produce values for each page.

Aggregate counters use the values for all the pages in a test to produce a single value for a report. This value is rolled up from all values that satisfy the counter. When you drag an aggregate counter onto a report, one value is displayed. Folders that contain aggregate counters have a clock superimposed on the folder icon: folder icon with a clock superimposed. The tables below that list aggregate counters have this icon in their title.

Individual counters produce values for each item that satisfies the counter, rather than a single rolled-up value. Folders that contain individual counters have an asterisk superimposed on the folder icon: folder icon with an asterisk superimposed. The tables below that list individual counters have this icon in their title.

Some counters pertain to intervals in the run. You set the Statistics sample interval value in the schedule, as a schedule property.

Response Time counters

Response time counters omit page response times for pages that contain requests with status codes in the range of 4XX (client errors) to 5XX (server errors). The only exception is when the failure (for example, a 404) is recorded and returned, and the request is not the primary request for the page. Page response times which contain requests that time out are always discarded.

Status Code Success counters

A status code success means that the response code verification point passed for that request. If the request has no verification points, a success means that the server received a request and returned a response where the status code was in the 200 or 300 category, or returned an expected response in the 400 or 500 category.

Verification Point counters

The tables in this section provide information about verification points. The verdict for a verification point can be Pass, Fail, Error, or Inconclusive.

  • Pass indicates that all verification points matched or received the expected response. For example, a response code verification point is set to PASS when the recorded response code is received during playback. If your test does not contain verification points, PASS means that all primary requests in the test were successful.
  • Fail indicates that at least one verification point did not match the expected response or that the expected response was not received.
  • Error indicates one of the following results: a primary request was not successfully sent to the server, no response was received from the server for a primary request, or the primary request response was incomplete or could not be parsed.
  • The verdict is set to Inconclusive only if you provide custom code that defines a verdict of Inconclusive.
