Difference in reported test duration and time on graphs

I am running Load Complete 2.10 and I have noticed that there is a difference between the test duration time reported on a test report's summary tab and the maximum time on the X axes of the graphs on the infrastructure and Response Time tabs.  In addition, I am seeing that the difference is increasing as I increase the number of virtual users in my test case.  As an example, when I run a test with 40 virtual users, the test duration time is reported as 8m 2.81s but when I look at the graphs, the maximum time on the X axes is 4m 9s.  Can anyone explain the reason for this difference?



TIA

  • Hi Ronald,



    The Response Time page contains graphs, whose data is collected only on the traffic simulation stage of a test, while the Test Duration metric represents the overall test execution time including the traffic preparation, handling the received responses, processing of test results and report creation.

    Thank you for your response.  That helps to clarify the differences we were seeing in the times.
