Scenario Groups Pane

This pane enables you to monitor the actions of all the Vusers and Vuser groups in the scenario.

User interface elements are described below (unlabeled elements are shown in angle brackets):

UI Element
Description
<Right-click menu>
Additional actions available only via the right-click menu:
  • Reset IDs. Resets the IDs of the Vusers in the group.

  • Run Vusers Until Complete. Runs the selected Vusers until complete. If you run Vusers in the Down or Error state, the Controller initializes and then runs the Vusers.

  • Run One Vuser Until Complete. Instructs the Controller to run a randomly selected Vuser in the Vuser group, until it completes running. The Vuser Log opens, displaying runtime information about the Vuser. For more information, see Vuser Script Log.

  • Pause Vusers. Temporarily pauses running the Vusers group. The status of the Vuser group changes from Running to Paused. Note that pausing a Vuser group affects its transaction response time.

  • Enable. Enables the Vuser group to participate in the scenario.

  • Disable. Disables the Vuser group so that it no longer participates in the scenario.

  • Show Vuser Log. Opens a script log containing runtime information for each Vuser in the group. The Vuser script log is refreshed, by default, every 1000 milliseconds.

  • Hide Vuser Log. Closes the Vuser script logs.

  • Sort By Name. Sorts the groups alphabetically, by name.
