SAP screen counters

These counters provide information about screens started, screens completed, response times, and verification points. Some counters produce an aggregate value, where the values for several screens are rolled up into one value; others produce values for each screen.

Aggregate counters use the values for all the screens 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.

SAP Screen Request Response Time counters

The counters in this section provide information about the SAP application response time. This is the time that elapses from the point that the SAP GUI client sends a request and the moment the response is received and displayed by the SAP GUI client.

SAP Screen Request Interpretation Time counters

The counters in this section provide information about the SAP GUI interpretation time. This is the duration from the time that the SAP GUI client receives data from the server and the moment when this data is displayed. This measures the health of the SAP GUI client used for the test rather than the performance of the SAP R/3 server.

Verification Point counters

The tables in this section provide information about SAP screen verification points. The verdict for a verification point can be Pass, Fail, Error, or Inconclusive.
  • Pass indicates that the verification point 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, it means that the connection succeeded.
  • Fail indicates that the verification point did not match the expected response or that the expected response was not received.
  • Error indicates that the primary request was not successfully sent to the server, no response was received from the server, or the 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.
