Socket Performance report

The Socket Performance report summarizes the health of the run, displays the data most significant to the run, shows the response trend of the slowest 10 transactions in the test, and graphs the response trend of each transaction for a specified interval, for socket API performance tests.

Overall page

The Overall page summarizes the most important data about the test run, so that you can analyze the final or intermediate results of a test at a glance.

The top of the page displays a progress indicator bar that shows the state of the run.

The Virtual Users Activity bar chart displays the number of virtual users that are active and the number of virtual users that have completed testing. This number is updated during the run.

The Run Summary section displays the following information:
  • The name of the test or schedule.
  • The number of virtual users that are active and the number of virtual users that have completed testing. This number is updated during the run.
  • The total number of virtual users that are simulated during the test.
  • The elapsed time. This figure is the run duration, which is displayed in hours, minutes, and seconds.
  • The status of the run. This can be Initializing Computers, Adding Users, Running, Performing Execution History Data Transfer, Stopped, or Complete.
  • Results for the computer, All Hosts. To see summary results for individual computers, click the computer name in the Performance Test Runs view.

Connect Performance page

The Connect Performance page shows the performance of socket connection actions. With this information, you can evaluate system response during and after the test.

The Connect Actions vs. Time bar chart shows the attempted and successful connection actions during the test run.

The Connect Times vs. Time bar chart shows average, maximum, minimum, and standard deviation of connection times during the test run.

The Connect Actions Summary displays this information:
  • The number of connections that were attempted
  • The number of connections that were successful

The Connect Times Summary displays the average, maximum, minimum, and standard deviation of connection times.

Send/Receive Performance page

The Send/Receive Performance page shows the data throughput trend as graphed for a specified interval. The line graph shows the average response time for all socket send and receive actions during the run. Each point on the graph is an average of what has occurred during that interval. You set the Statistics sample interval in the schedule as a schedule property.

The Send/Receive Actions vs. Time bar chart shows the attempted and successful send and receive actions during the test run.

The Response Times vs. Time bar chart shows average, maximum, minimum, and standard deviation of response times during the test run.

The Connect Actions Summary displays this information:
  • The number of send and receive actions that were attempted
  • The number of send and receive actions that were successful

The Connect Times Summary displays the average, maximum, minimum, and standard deviation of response times.

Byte Performance page

The Byte Performance page provides an overview of the frequency of requests that are being transferred per interval:
  • The Exchanged Bytes vs. Time line graph shows the quantity of bytes sent and received during the test run.
  • The Exchanged Bytes summary table after the graph lists the total number of bytes sent and received.
