Advanced Options Dialog Box
This dialog box enables you to define a tracking period for load test scenario.
User interface elements are described below:
|Internally calculated tracking period
Analysis sets the tracking period to the minimum value possible, taking into account the aggregation granularity defined for the scenario. This value is at least 5 seconds. It uses the following formula:
Tracking Period = Max (5 seconds, aggregation granularity)
|Tracking period of at least X seconds
Determines the minimum amount of time for the tracking period. This value can never be less than 5 seconds.
Analysis sets the tracking period to the nearest multiple of the scenario's aggregation granularity that is greater than or equal to the value (X) that you selected.
For this option, Analysis uses the following formula:
Tracking Period =
Max(5 seconds, m(Aggregation Granularity))
where m is a multiple of the scenario's aggregation granularity such that m(Aggregation Granularity) is greater than or equal to X.
Example: If you select a tracking period of X=10, and the aggregation granularity for the scenario is 6, then the tracking period is set to the nearest multiple of 6 that is greater than or equal to 10, that is, Tracking Period = 12.
