Understanding and reacting the results from a LoadForge test is more important than the test itself. We have collected some examples here for indicators, errors, and what to look out for in tests.
When you finish a test you will immediately see the "Performance Summary" and "Response Time Summary" figures.
In Performance, we want to look for:
These both indicate an overload on your system. You can look at the Errors tab for more details.
For Response Times there are two primary considerations:
You can get a huge amount of information from the "P9x Response times" graph, which shows the difference between the P95 and P99 measurements.
Generally speaking you want smooth consistent lines on graphs. Spikes and choppiness is an indicator of an overloaded system.
You should also aim to see your P95 and P99 lines be close to each other, showing reliable performance.
