During load test runs, you may need to pause the traffic simulation.

Setting Think Time for Operations

For each operation in your scenario, you can set the think time - the period (in milliseconds) when LoadComplete will wait before simulating the operation.

  1. Open your scenario in the Scenario editor. To do this, right-click the scenario in the Project Explorer, and then click Edit or double-click the scenario in the Project Explorer.

  2. In the Scenario Explorer panel, select the needed operation.

  3. In the Operation Editor panel, enter the needed think time period for the operation (in milliseconds).

The think time you set for operations that belong to a page will be included in page load time and other metrics and may affect your test results.

To learn more about setting think time for a page and individual requests, see Changing Think Time for Pages and Requests.

Using the Delay Operation

You can add a Delay operation to your scenario to pause the simulation:

  • Open your scenario in the Scenario editor. To do this, right-click the scenario in the Project Explorer and then click Edit or double-click the scenario in the Project Explorer.

  • Add the Delay operation to the place in the scenario where you want to pause the simulation.

  • Set the needed think time for the Delay operation:
