Playback settings configure “think time” values for simulated user actions and to set the waiting time for web elements.

To enable these settings, select the Override playback times and timeouts configured in script check box first. If this check box is clear, the think time values will be identical to those captured during recording of the scripts associated with this scenario.

Playback Time (millisec)

LoadNinja records Think Time commands to simulate pauses between user actions in tests. This setting overrides the Think Time setting of scripts to be simulated in the scenario. The following options are possible:

Value Description
Fixed LoadNinja will use the specified duration to all Think Time commands in the test (in milliseconds):
Setting fixed think time
Random LoadNinja will use random Think Time values in the range from 100 ms to 1 min 100 ms.
Minimum LoadNinja will ignore Think Time values specified in tests and will use the minimal possible think time (100 ms).
Setting this value will streamline the test (it will work as fast as possible), but may break the test, if the latter needs a pause in certain cases, for example, if at certain point the page needs to run a client-side script before simulating further actions.
Recorded LoadNinja will use the duration that is set in the script recorder. If you have not changed Think Time values in the test, then this will be the recorded duration.

Timeout Test After (sec)

This setting overrides the Timeout Test After setting of simulated scripts. It specifies the number of seconds LoadNinja will wait when it doesn’t find some web element during a script run, or before a web page is loaded. If the specified timeout elapses and the needed web page or object doesn’t appear, LoadNinja logs an error.
