Applies to LoadComplete 4.97, last modified on May 20, 2019

This section contains a graph that shows how the page load time and the number of virtual users changed during the test run.

Page load time is the time it takes to download the entire web page, including all the images, scripts, CSS files, and so on. The graph shows the average load time of all pages in your test.

Viewing the Graph

  1. Open the desired Report item (if it is not open yet). To do that, expand the test log item node under the Project_Name Logs folder in the Project Explorer and double-click its child Report node.

  2. In the Report panel, select the Response Time tabbed page.

  3. Expand the Page Load Time section.

Requirements

To view the graphs and charts shown in the Report panel, install Flash Player 8 or later for Windows Internet Explorer on your computer. You can download the latest version of the player from the Adobe web site:

Pages

The Page Load Time section contains several tabbed pages that show page load time statistics in different modes.

With Virtual Users Page

The graph on this page shows the page load time and the number of virtual users at any moment of the test run.

Page Load Time and Virtual Users Over Time

The thin line, Max. Page Load Time, represents the maximum load time of all pages that LoadComplete was loading at that moment.

The thick line, Page Load Time, represents the average load time of all pages that LoadComplete was loading at that moment.

If the average and maximum values are equal, the graph shows only the average values.

You can show and hide individual graph lines by clicking the line name in the graph legend.

Note: You can view the page load time on the Runtime > Graphs page during the test run. On the Graphs page, you can also view the load time of individual pages in your test.

To see the exact value of a metric at a specific moment, hover the mouse pointer over the needed data point on the graph - a tooltip showing the metric value will appear.

To see detailed information on pages loaded at a specific moment, click the needed data point on the graph. The graph will show the list of pages loaded at that moment, their load time, status and so on in a popup window.

Note: This information will be available only if you configure LoadComplete to gather detailed information on requests and responses during simulation. To do this, set the Store log data option to All data (Report + Details).
Printing the Contents of the Report Panel

Note that LoadComplete shows the data shown in the graph in the tabular format. An appropriate table is shown under the Page Load Time graph when you start printing the contents of the Report panel, that is, when you click Print on the panel's toolbar.

The above-mentioned table contains the following columns:

Column Description

Time

The time scale from 0 to the test duration, in one-second increments.

Page load time

The total page loading time (loading of all images, scripts, CSS files, and so on) measured at the specified moment. Note that this value does not include the think time simulated for pages.

Users

The number of virtual users running at the specified time moment.

More Information

For more information on working with the graphs and charts shown in the Report panel, see Viewing the Report Charts and Graphs.

Scroll Chart Page

This tab contains a graph that shows how the page load time changed during the test run. Below is a sample image of the graph:

The Page Load Time (scroll view) graph

You can zoom this graph in and out. You can also select the desired area of the graph and then overlay it with another area. For more information on working with scroll graphs, see Working With Scroll Graphs.

Chart by Region Page

This page contains graphs organized by Amazon cloud regions.

The graphs show the number of virtual users and page load time in each region at any moment of the test run. Bold lines indicate average page load time, thin lines indicate maximum page load time. If the average and maximum values are equal, the graph shows only the average values.

Note: This page is available only when you run tests on a cloud computer and on a local workstation, or on cloud computers that belong to a different region.

You work with these graphs in the same way you work with the graphs on the With Virtual Users tabbed page. For more information, see the section above.

Data Table Page

This page contains a table that represents the data of the graphs displayed on the With Virtual Users page. For a detailed description of its columns, refer to the description of the graphs.

This tab is not visible in LoadComplete. To view its contents, export your test results to an external file.
