Running Single-User Tests

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

When you are recording a new scenario, LoadComplete automatically creates a single-user test based on that scenario. Usually, you use single-user tests at the initial stage of testing. These tests allow checking the overall performance of your load test, for example, you can check whether the test can run successfully with the selected load profile.

Verifying Tests

We recommend that you create a verification load test that will simulate a recorded scenario for one or several virtual users. When you run such a test, LoadComplete will take into account all the settings and conditions you set for the test. For instance, the test run uses the load profile, think time, SLA criteria and many other settings. For more information on creating verification tests with LoadComplete, see Verifying Tests.

Verifying Scenarios

Besides test verification, you can verify scenarios by running them for one virtual user. The main difference is that when you verify a scenario, LoadComplete does not take into account all the settings mentioned above. For more information on verifying scenarios with LoadComplete, see Verifying User Scenarios.
