Number of concurrent virtual users

The maximum number of concurrent virtual users (VUs) to be simulated during the run.

During the ramp-up period (if you use it), the number of concurrent virtual users will be less than this number. LoadNinja starts running the load test with 0 virtual users and adds them gradually during the ramp-up period until their amount reaches the value specified by the Virtual Users setting.

For information on how LoadNinja simulates virtual users, see Virtual users and load types.

Select the web tests to run during the load test

A web test (or script) is a sequence of user actions to be simulated on the tested web pages.

In this setting, you select scripts that virtual users in your load test will run.

To add a script to the scenario, click Add Web Tests, and then pick a web test from your project to append to the scenario and click Submit:

Scenario editor: Add a script

Tip: Use the search box to filter the script list. It allows searching for a specific character in a script’s name.

If you don’t have web tests in your project, you need to record them first.

To simulate different user behavior on the tested web application, add multiple different scripts to the scenario. After that, specify how many virtual users should run this or that script.
