calculate pacing for 1000 iterations in 1 hour

Hi,

Could you help me calculating pacing to reach 1000 iterations in 1 hour?

Complete transaction takes around 25 seconds.

Thanks!!

Re: calculate pacing for 1000 iterations in 1 hour

Hmm.

Let's say 30s per iteration to make my life easier. Add 5s of think time if necessary.  :)

2 / minute = 120 / hour?

10 vusers should give you approx 1200 / hour if I'm thinking about this correctly? Then 9 users would be 1080 TRXs, 8 users would be 960 TRXs.

You'll of course have to adjust for any ramp-up or ramp-down time.

Re: calculate pacing for 1000 iterations in 1 hour

I'll try to explain my case:

I have to run 100 vUsers for 3 scripts with different percentages (70%, 25%, 5%).

Test duration: 1:30 hours with a ramp up of 15 min and 15 min ramp down

For the first script (70%) I want to generate  10.000 iterations

For the second one (25%) 2500 iterations

And finally for the third (5%) 500 iterations along the test

Could you help me calculating pacing to reach those iterations?

Thanks

Can you run  say 1/4 of that see what the rates look like after maybe 15 minutes? And adjust the rates based on what you see?
