  • The results of the first seconds do not properly reflect how the server responds to requests, since it takes some time to start the required processes. To avoid recording these results, we will specify the test warm-up time.

    Click somewhere within the Scenarios panel to open the Load Test editor. In the Warm-up Time field, enter 5 seconds.

  • Click to run the test.

The test run goes without user interaction. LoadUI simulates test steps of the underlying SoapUI test case (you can see its name in the Targets section in the Editor). It sends requests to the target web service and gets responses. After starting the test, you see the test results. LoadUI displays the results both during the test run and when the test run is over.
