Service call counters

Service call counters provide information about the calls that are invoked during the service test.
Some counters produce an aggregate value, where the values for several service calls are combined into a single value; others produce values for each service call.
  • Aggregate counters use the values for all the elements in a test to produce a single value for a report. This value combines 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. In the tables that follow, the aggregate counters are listed after the titles that contain this icon.

  • Individual counters produce values for each item that satisfies the counter, rather than an aggregate value. Folders that contain individual counters have an asterisk superimposed on the folder icon: folder icon with an asterisk superimposed. In the tables that follow, the individual counters are listed after the titles that contain this icon.

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